The New York Islanders have placed Yannick Rathgeb on unconditional waivers according to CapFriendly. Rathgeb will see his contract terminated, making him an unrestricted free agent and able to return to Switzerland if he so chooses.

Rathgeb, 23, signed a two-year entry-level contract with the Islanders in April of 2018, but obviously failed to find a fit in the organization. The Swiss defenseman was undrafted after playing two seasons in the OHL, but had been dominating the NLA for a few years when he finally got the contract.
