The New York Rangers have placed veteran defenseman Darius Kasparaitis on waivers. The 34-year-old has two goals and two assists in 24 games and is averaging 14:52 minutes of ice time this season. Kasparaitis has been a healthy scratch the last three games and hasn't played since January 11.
Kasparaitis and head coach Tom Renney have been at odds at times this season. Kasparaitis was sent to the minors earlier this season after Renney felt he wasn't where he was supposed to be conditioning-wise.
