Toronto - July 4, 2013 - The Toronto Maple Leafs placed Mikhail Grabovski on unconditional waivers Thursday with the intention of using a compliance buyout on him, according to multiple reports.

Grabovski had four years remaining on a contract that would have paid him $21.5 million and cost the Maple Leafs $5.5 million per season against the salary cap. This would be the second of two allowed compliance buyouts for the Maple Leafs, who also used one on defenseman Mike Komisarek.

After scoring 52 goals in the previous two seasons combined before signing a five-year, $27 million contract extension, Grabovski had just nine goals and 16 points in 48 games for Toronto last season.

Grabovski was second among Leafs' forwards in Corsi relative to the quality of competition he faced, which is a strong indicator that he was one of the team's best players at possessing the puck at even strength. He also had the worst PDO among Toronto forwards, which measures shooting percentage and save percentage when he is on the ice - a low number can be an indicator of bad luck.

Nashville Predators defenseman Hal Gill, New Jersey Devils goaltender Johan Hedberg and Colorado defenseman Greg Zanon were also placed on unconditional waivers Thursday, according to TSN's Bob McKenzie.
