Sharks forward Andrew Murray cleared waivers Tuesday, according to a report on Twitter by The Sports Network's Bob McKenzie.

Murray will be reassigned to Worcester.

After playing right wing on the fourth line for the first 24 games, Murray was 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.

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

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 Monday. "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.

The Sharks signed the 30-year-old on July 19 after he played four years in Columbus.
