|The Pittsburgh Penguins this afternoon have placed enforcer Steve MacIntyre on waivers. The 31 year old appeared in 10 games, collecting 0 points, 0 shots on goal,Â 2 penalty minutes and averagingÂ 2:34 of ice. He never had to drop the gloves, earning nearlyÂ half of his NHL contract,Â much moreÂ than he would have earned in a full season in the minors. MacIntyre was signed to a 1 year contract this past summer that pays himÂ $600,000 at theÂ NHL level and $105,000Â in the minors.Â Â A move had been neccessary with the Penguins expected to activate Dustin Jeffrey off injured reserve. If MacIntyre is not claimed by 12:00 p.m. Thursday,Â MacIntyre can be sent down to Wilkes Barre/Scranton.|
