The Anaheim Ducks have placed veteran defender Luke Schenn on waivers, according to Sportsnet’s Elliotte Friedman.

Schenn has suited up for eight games with the Ducks this season, posting zero points and a minus-six rating while skating an average of 11:59 per night. The 29-year-old signed a one-year, $800,000 deal with Anaheim on July 1.

The former Toronto Maple Leaf and Philadelphia Flyer is coming off a lacklustre stretch in Arizona, with whom he spent the past two seasons. Schenn posted 15 points through 151 games as a Coyote, with his ice-time sitting at an average of 17:18.

Prior to that, Schenn had a brief 43-game stint in Los Angeles after spending four years in Philadelphia and four years in Toronto, compiling 42 and 75 points, respectively, during those stops.
