Mike Mottau has been put on waivers by Florida.

He missed some time with a leg injury, but he also spent a considerable amount of time as a healthy scratch for the Panthers. Mottau had no points in seven outings with Florida this season. If he clears then he'll probably head to the minors.

Mike Mottau has been placed on injured reserve with a leg injury.

Mike Mottau has been a healthy scratch for 13 of Florida's past 14 games.

He hasn't played since Dec. 3, but he might get a chance to dress when NHL play returns after the Christmas break. Erik Gudbranson might be out for a month after undergoing orbital bone surgery, which opens up a roster spot. Alex Petrovic, Matt Gilroy, Ryan Whitney or Colby Robak could also be options for the Panthers.

Mike Mottau might suit up for Florida Tuesday night.

If Erik Gudbranson can't dress because of a lower-body injury then Mottau is likely to step into the lineup in his place. Mottau has been a healthy scratch for the team's past six games and in nine of the past 10. He's made seven appearances with the big club this year.

Mike Mottau has been placed on waivers by the Florida Panthers.

Mottau didn't play in the NHL at all last season and he wasn't able to make the Panthers' opening game roster. Assuming he clears waivers, he will serve as an organizational depth defenseman and a potential injury replacement.
Wed, Sep 25, 2013 03:36:00 PM

Mike Mottau signed a one-year deal with the Florida Panthers.

Mottau had 14 points in 34 AHL contests last season. He has no fantasy value.

Mike Mottau was waived by Toronto on Wednesday.

The Leafs also cut forwards Ryan Hamilton, Keith Aucoin and Greg Scott from their training camp roster by placing them on waivers. They will all likely head for the Marlies in the AHL if they clear.

Mike Mottau was on the ice Sunday with his new Toronto teammates after agreeing to a two-way deal.

"We've been talking about players with NHL experience who might come in here and help us," GM Dave Nonis said. Mottau played 16 games with Florida's AHL affiliate in San Antonio during the lockout and he skated in 35 games between the Islanders and Bruins last season. He probably won't crack the team's opening night roster.

Mike Mottau has been released from the Panthers' AHL affiliate.

The veteran defenseman had been playing with the Rampage, putting up seven points in 16 games. He played in 35 games with the Bruins last year, tallying a mere two assists. He'll look to get a camp invite elsewhere now.

He has played in two games already for Florida's AHL affiliate and will be looking for an NHL contract from somewhere once the lockout is over.
