The Blue Jackets have claimed Jussi Jokinen off of waivers from the Kings.
Jokinen has had a very difficult campaign after signing with the Oilers this offseason. Jokinen had just one assist in 14 games with Edmonton before being traded to the Kings, where he added another five points (1G / 4A) in 18 games. The Blue Jackets offence needs a boost and Jokinen should help their 30th ranked power-play (13.5%).
The Canadiens have claimed Logan Shaw off of waivers from the Ducks.
Shaw was a healthy scratch in Los Angeles on Saturday and was placed on waivers on Sunday after the Ducks claimed J.T. Brown from the Lightning. Shaw has just two goals and six assists (eight points) in 42 games with the Ducks.
The Ducks have claimed JT Brown off of waivers from the Lightning.
The Blackhawks have placed Cody Franson on waivers.
Franson has picked up seven points (1G / 6A) in 23 games with the Blackhawks this season. The right-handed defenseman has a +9.2 relative Corsi this season, the best among all Blackhawks skaters. The emergence of Jordan Oesterle has apparently made Franson expendable. Franson will likely be claimed.
The Coyotes have claimed Freddie Hamilton off of waivers from the Flames.
Hamilton has sat as a healthy scratch for the majority of the season, only appearing in eight games with the Flames, collecting just one assist. He will likely fill a similar role with the Coyotes.
The Capitals re-claimed Nathan Walker off of waivers from the Oilers.
The Golden Knights have claimed Ryan Carpenter off of waivers from San Jose.
The Lightning have claimed Chris DiDomenico off of waivers from the Senators.
The Senators have claimed Gabriel Dumont off of waivers from the Lightning.
The Canucks have placed Anton Rodin on unconditional waivers to terminate his contract.
The Canadiens have claimed Antti Niemi off of waivers from the Panthers.
Niemi opened the season in Pittsburgh but was claimed off of waivers when Roberto Luongo was hurt and now that he is back, Niemi was waived again and claimed by Montreal who are currently without Carey Price and Al Montoya. Niemi is likely just insurance and will be nothing more than Charlie Lindgren’s backup. He heads to Montreal with a 6.74 GAA and .822 SV% in give games this season. Yikes.
The Panthers have claimed Antti Niemi off of waivers from the Penguins.
The Canadiens have placed Mark Streit on waivers.
Streit was a healthy scratch for the last two games and was placed on waivers this afternoon, so it looks like his time with the Canadiens will be cut short after just two games. At this point, letting Andrei Markov walk in favour of fellow veteran Streit isn’t looking so good for Montreal.
The Rangers have claimed Adam Cracknell off of waivers from the Stars.
Cracknell played 8:35 TOI in the Stars’ second game of the season and was placed on waivers shortly after. He’ll join the Rangers where he will be in a similar role of depth forward. He had 10 goals and six assists (16 points) in 69 games with Dallas a season ago.
The Avalanche have claimed Patrik Nemeth off of waivers from the Stars.
Nemeth has appeared in 108 NHL games and 57 AHL games with the Stars organization since 2013-14. Last season he had just three assists in 40 games with Dallas. The 25-year-old will likely serve as a No.7 defenseman in Colorado.
The Golden Knights have claimed Malcolm Subban off of waivers from the Bruins.
Subban has struggled to find his way since being drafted No.24 overall in 2012. The 23-year-old has only appeared in two NHL games and is coming off of a year in which he was 11-14-1 with a 2.41 GAA and .917 SV% in 32 games with Providence (AHL). Subban will have to stay in the NHL, so Vegas may roll with three netminders.
The Canucks have claimed Joseph Cramarossa off of waivers from Anaheim.
Cramarossa, 24, was a third round pick in 2011 (No. 65 overall) and has recorded 10 points (4G / 6A) in 49 games with the Ducks this season. Cramarossa could make his Canucks’ debut in San Jose on Thursday.
The Blue Jackets have claimed Zac Dalpe off of waivers from Minnesota.
Dalpe, 27, has one goal and two assists (three points) in nine games with Minnesota and two goals in 12 AHL games. Dalpe will report to Cleveland (AHL).
