J.T. Brown‘s time with the Tampa Bay Lightning may be drawing to a close.

The club put the right winger on waivers Saturday, reports Sportsnet’s Elliotte Friedman.

Brown has four points in 24 games this season, scoring his only goal on Nov. 12.

He’s been a healthy scratch multiple times and has averaged a career-low 9:22 in ice time in 2017-18.

Brown is a pending unrestricted free agent carrying a cap hit of $1.25 million this season, according to CapFriendly.

He became the first NHL player to peacefully protest during the U.S. national anthem when he stood with his fist raised during the singing of “The Star-Spangled Banner” before a game on Oct. 7.
