The Sharks have placed forward Andrew Murray on waivers, according to a tweet from TSNs Bob McKenzie.

The Sharks confirmed the report on Monday morning.

Murray, 30, has been a frequent scratch from the Sharks lineup lately, including the last four games. In 39 games, Murray has a goal and three assists for four points and four penalty minutes.

We have a lot of depth in the forward position, and Andrews played well for us, but he hasnt played in awhile," general manager Doug Wilson said. "We think the opportunity to create some of the options for our roster going forward, and to get Andrew playing again, was the decision we took today.

Lately, the Sharks' fourth line has consisted of a mish-mash of Brad Winchester, John McCarthy, Jim Vandermeer and Benn Ferriero.

I think the different ingredients that Todd McLellan has used, is certainly going in the right direction," Wilson said.

The Sharks signed Murray on July 19 after he played four years in Columbus. He is on waivers until 9:00 a.m. tomorrow, and will likely clear and be reassigned to Worcester.
