On Tuesday, the Vegas Golden Knights chose to place forward Adam Brooks on waivers, and Wednesday he was claimed by the Toronto Maple Leafs.
Brooks, 25, appeared in just seven games for the Golden Knights, scoring two goals. He was drafted back in 2016 in the fourth-round (#92 overall) by the Maple Leafs, and spent four seasons playing in their system, mainly with the Toronto Marlies in the American Hockey League.
Prior to the 2021-22 season beginning, he was placed on waivers by the Maple Leafs and was picked up by the Montreal Canadiens. His time with the Habs was very short lived, as he was once again placed on waivers after only suiting up for four games, and this time was claimed by the Golden Knights.
At the time the Golden Knights claimed him, they were very injury riddled and chose to take him as a depth option. Once they began getting healthy, and now in particular that they have Jack Eichel back, he became expendable. Hopefully Adam Brooks is able to find a home with the Maple Leafs roster moving forward after being claimed off waivers, as he has been bounced around plenty in 2021-22, and we are only at the halfway point of the season.
