Petrovic was placed on waivers Sunday, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.
Petrovic needs to pass through waivers whether he's assigned to AHL Stockton or ultimately remains with the parent club on the taxi squad. With Nikita Nesterov, Oliver Kylington and Michael Stone all in the mix for the No. 6 spot on the Flames' defensive depth chart, Petrovic is unlikely to find many minutes even if he hangs around in Calgary.

The Bruins obviously view Petrovic, who was attending their training camp on a professional tryout agreement, as a worthwhile depth piece, but don't currently consider him one of their top-seven defensemen. The 27-year-old will split time between the AHL and NHL in 2019-20.... See More ... See Less

Petrovic saw action in 35 games last season for the Panthers and Oilers, in which he tallied two assists, 26 PIM and 47 shots while averaging 16:32 of ice time. The Boston blue line is already stacked, but the team still hasn't agreed to terms on new deals for restricted free agents Charlie McAvoy and Brandon Carlo, so bringing Petrovic in on a PTO gives Boston an extra body for camp and potential cover in the event of a protracted holdout....
