After capturing a second consecutive victory over the Calgary Flames on Thursday night, the Winnipeg Jets announced they’ve made a roster move Friday morning.
According to the NHL’s transactions list, the Jets have placed forward Dominic Toninato on waivers, making him available to the other 30 teams in the league.

Toninato hasn’t played in a single game this season and has been serving as a member of the team’s taxi squad. If the 26-year-old passes through waivers after 24 hours, he’ll become eligible to be assigned to the AHL.
Through 46 games with the Flordia Panthers last season, the left-hander averaged 11:09 minutes of ice time, producing four goals, 11 points, 57 hits, 38 shots on net, 28 blocks, 17 takeaways and a 47.1% faceoff percentage.
Winnipeg is scheduled to take on Calgary at the Scotiabank Saddledome on Tuesday at 9 pm CT.
