BREAKING: Western Conference Team Terminates Young Defensemans Contract

BREAKING: Western Conference Team Terminates Young Defensemans Contract

BY MARCO    FEBRUARY 8, 2024  (2:35 PM)
In the final moments, the San Jose Sharks announced that 24-year-old right defenseman Leon Gawanke has been placed on unconditional waivers.

If he is not claimed by tomorrow, his contract will be mutually terminated.

A fifth-round pick of the Winnipeg Jets in 2017, Gawanke has scored 27 points in 38 games this season in the American League with Barracuda.

It seems likely that he will return to Europe, as he is originally from Germany.


Recall that in July 2023, Gawanke was traded from the Jets to the Sharks in exchange for defenseman Artemi Kniazev. In both cases, the change of scenery has not been positive, as the Russian has returned to the KHL this season.

WILL HE BE CLAIMED?
