New Jersey Devils claim Bobby Farnham off of Waivers

According to multiple sources, now former Penguins forward Bobby Farnham has been claimed off of waivers by the Ray Shero lead New Jersey Devils.

Fan reaction has been mixed as Farnham was a fan favorite for his energetic style of play, however, others did not see him as a viable NHL player.  Known mostly as a "spark plug" or "enforcer", Farnham registered 0 points and 29 PIM in 14 career NHL games with the Penguins over the past two seasons.

Ironically, Farnham earned 274, 166, and 226 PIM's in three respective seasons with the Wilkes-Barre Scranton Penguins for a total of 666 over his career in Northeast PA ranking him 6th all time for the AHL team.  And now he is a Devil.

The move is certainly a good one for Farnham as he is all but guaranteed more ice time in New Jersey than he would have received in Pittsburgh had he cleared waivers and remained a Penguin.

We here at PensInitiative wish Bobby Farnham all the best, except of course when he is playing the Penguins.
