Blues Place Gomez on Unconditional Waivers

The St. Louis Blues are parting ways with veteran forward Scott Gomez.

The St. Louis Blues announced Wednesday they have placed veteran forward Scott Gomez on unconditional waivers with the intent of granting him his unconditional release.

Gomez, 36, signed a one-year deal with St. Louis after coming to training camp on a professional tryout. 

He had appeared in 21 games for the Blues (23-12-4, 50 points) but had played in just five of the team’s 15 games so far this month. He recorded eight points (one goal, seven assists) and a -4 rating while averaging 11:15 minutes of ice time. 

For his career, Gomez has 755 points (181 goals, 574 assists) and 653 penalty minutes in 1,066 regular-season games with the New Jersey Devils, Montreal Canadiens, San Jose Sharks, Florida Panthers and Blues.
