Jordin Tootoo’s run in Detroit looks like it is coming to an end after only two years.
The Red Wings are reportedly placing the forward on waivers with the intention of buying out the final year of his contract.
Tootoo is set to make $2 million. After he clears waivers, the Red Wings can buy out the last year of his deal for $1.33 million.
Tootoo played eight seasons for the Predators, scoring 46 goals, but his career in Detroit never blossomed after signing a three-year deal.
Tootoo played only 53 games in Detroit and scored only three goals.
He finished last season in Grand Rapids with the Griffins of the AHL.
