The Anaheim Ducks placed nine players on waivers on Friday, including former Washington Capitals defenseman Christian Djoos.
The 26-year-old was traded to the Ducks in exchange for forward Daniel Sprong on February 24, 2020. He posted one goal, three points, and a +2 rating in nine games after the trade last season and appeared in two games with the Capitals in 2019-20.
In 110 career games with the Capitals, Djoos recorded four goals, 24 points, and a +23 rating, including three goals, 14 points, and a +13 rating in 63 games during the 2017-18 season. Though, his play declined after he missed 24 games while recovering from thigh surgery. Jonas Siegenthaler took his spot in the lineup after Game 3 of the first-round Stanley Cup Playoff series against the Carolina Hurricanes in 2019 and never looked back.
Djoos posted one assist and a +5 rating in 22 games during the Capitals’ run to the 2018 Stanley Cup.
The Capitals selected Djoos 195th overall in 2012.
The Ducks also placed forward David Backes on waivers on Friday.
