Defenseman Gustav Forsling has been claimed off waivers by the Florida Panthers.

Forsling, who’s 24 years old, was originally acquired by the Hurricanes in 2019, as part of a package which sent defenseman Calvin de Haan to the Chicago Blackhawks. Forsling spent the entire 2019-20 season in the AHL, scoring 26 points in 57 games to go along with a plus-20 rating, which led all defensemen on the Charlotte Checkers.

With so much depth on defense, Forsling was unlikely to earn a spot with Carolina anytime soon. While it is somewhat surprising to see him claimed, it shouldn’t have any impact on the Hurricanes.

All other players who were waived by the Hurricanes yesterday cleared.
