The Arizona Coyotes have claimed forward Craig Cunningham off of waivers, per Coyotes General Manager Don Maloney.

Cunningham was placed on waivers by the Bruins on March 1 after being a healthy scratch for the last four games. The 24-year-old has two goals and one assist in 32 games with the Bruins this season. Cunningham was drafted by the Bruins in the fourth round of the 2010 NHL draft, and was anticipated to center the fourth line during the 2016-17 season.

Cunningham is the second player the Bruins have lost off waivers this year, with winger Matt Fraser going to Edmonton in December.

While Cunningham's play was refreshing for the struggling team, the injury to center Gregory Campbell caused the emergence of an impressive Jordan Caron-Chris Kelly-Brian Ferlin line. The line's success in games so far made it hard for Cunningham to cement a permanent spot in the roster, and the Bruins put him on waivers to make way for a roster spot.
