Mark Friedman, a former Philadelphia Flyer who now plays for the rival Pittsburgh Penguins, has been placed on waivers by his team. This comes as a surprise for fans of both teams as Friedman was considered to be a promising young defenseman with potential.

However, this news comes just a week after Friedman was fined $2,000 for diving during a game against his former team, the Flyers. He had previously received a warning for diving in a game against the Detroit Red Wings in December.
Friedman's embellishment was caught on camera, showing him taking a dive after receiving a whack from Flyers forward Travis Konecny. This incident may have contributed to the Penguins' decision to place him on waivers as he has been warned multiple times prior to the 'dive'.
It remains to be seen if any other teams will claim Friedman, but this turn of events serves as a reminder that diving and embellishment will not be tolerated in the NHL.
