After spending all but four games watching the Toronto Maple Leafs play from the press box, veteran defenceman Mike Komisarek is on waivers, one step closer to either being picked up by another team, or moving to the American Hockey League.

Komisarek, 31, has a no-movement clause in his contract, and a source close to the move said the player and the team reached an agreement to waive that clause. Komisarek is on the usual 24-hour waiver period.

If he goes unclaimed, it is believed he will report to the Marlies, Toronto’s AHL affiliate.

Komisarek is in the fourth year of a five-year contract with the Leafs. He carries a cap hit of US$4.5-million. The NHL trade deadline is April 3, but it is not believed there was much interest in acquiring him at that price.

Komisarek skated with the Leafs in their pre-game skate on Wednesday, the same day the team recalled 22-year-old defenceman Jake Gardiner from the Marlies. The Leafs are in the middle of a five-game winless skid, and host the Tampa Bay Lightning on Wednesday night.
