Forward Mike York has seen the ups and downs during his career, no arguing that point. His time with the Islanders was split between good and bad, his time with the Rangers – also less than memorable.

During his worst struggles, the Islanders sent him packing to Philly where he still couldn’t find his game. He then spent a year in Phoenix, signed a deal with Russia in July of this summer after no NHL interest and finally balked on that contract to sign with Columbus.

Word from Eric Smith on Hockeybuzz has Columbus placing York on waivers. Hopefully, this does not mark the beginning of the end for York – as he only 30 years old.
