The Sharks have claimed Stefan Noesen off of waivers from the Penguins.
Noesen started the season with Wilkes-Barre/Scranton (AHL) where he had 22 points (14G / 8A) in 22 games and then signed an NHL deal with the Penguins. He appeared in just six games with Pittsburgh before being waived on Wednesday. He was claimed by the Sharks, in an attempt to boost their fourth line. He has 46 points (25G / 21A) in 165 career NHL games with the Ducks, Devils and Penguins.
The Jets have claimed Eric Comrie off of waivers from the Red Wings.
The 2019-20 season has been a roller coaster for Comrie. He was in training camp with the Jets but was claimed off of waivers by the Coyotes on October 1st, then traded to Detroit on November 30th. Comrie appeared in three games with Detroit (2 starts), going 0-2-0 with a 4.28 GAA and .864 SV% and was waived on Wednesday. Now he returns to the Jets where it all started.
The Jets have claimed Nick Shore off of waivers from Toronto.
The Jets have claimed Luca Sbisa off of waivers from Anaheim.
The Ducks were planning on signing Sbisa but he had to pass through waivers first. The Jets shut that idea down by claiming the 29-year-old defenseman. He had one assist in nine games with the Islanders last year and has 103 points (18G / 85A) in 504 career NHL games with the Flyers, Ducks, Canucks, Golden Knights and Islanders.
The Coyotes have claimed Eric Comrie off of waivers from the Jets.
Comrie was a second-round pick of the Jets in 2013 and has appeared in just five NHL games since. Last year he was 25-20-2 with a 2.69 GAA, .917 SV% and two shutouts in Manitoba (AHL) last year. Comrie provides a little extra goaltending depth for the Coyotes, who had to dip into the minor leagues last year because of a long-term Antti Raanta injury.
The Jets have claimed Carl Dahlstrom off of waivers from the Blackhawks.
Dahlstrom was originally selected in the second round of the 2013 NHL Draft and has appeared in 49 NHL games over the last two seasons. The 24-year-old has spent most of his time in the AHL, where he had eight points (1G / 7A) in 22 games last year but will serve as an extra defenseman in Winnipeg this season.
The Sharks claimed Michael Haley off of waivers from the Panthers.
Haley is a veteran fourth-line grinder, who has just one goal and two assists while averaging just 7:30 TOI/gm in 24 games this season. Haley had three goals, 10 assists (13 points) and 187 PIMS in 78 games from 2015-to-2017 while playing with the Sharks.
The Devils have claimed Kenny Agostino off of waivers from Montreal.
Agostino has always been a dominant scorer at the AHL-level but has just 17 points (4G / 13A) in 58 career NHL games, including just 11 points (2G / 9A) in 36 games with the Canadiens this season. Agostino essentially takes the spot of Brian Boyle, who was dealt to Nashville last week. He should start in the Devils’ bottom-6.
The Oilers have claimed Colby Cave off of waivers from the Bruins.
Cave, 24, was called up by the Bruins earlier this season after picking up 18 points (6G / 12A) in 15 games with Providence (AHL). With Boston, Cave had just one goal and four assists in 20 games before being waived on Monday. Cave will help address the Oilers centre depth and should allow Leon Draisaitl to continue to play with Connor McDavid.
The Flyers have claimed Mike McKenna off of waivers from the Canucks.
McKenna was acquired from the Senators earlier this week before being placed on waivers in order to send him to Utica (AHL). However, the Flyers goaltending situation has been a disaster this season so McKenna could allow them to return Carter Hart to Lehigh Valley (AHL) to get some playing time. The 35-year-old veteran has a 3.58 GAA and .892 SV% in 34 career NHL games.
The Predators have claimed Phil Di Giuseppe off of waivers from the Hurricanes.
Di Giuseppe has been a healthy scratch for the last four games and has just four points (1G / 3A) in 21 games with the Hurricanes this season. The 25-year-old will be a depth forward for the Predators—he has 14 goals and 27 assists (41 points) in 147 career NHL games.
The Golden Knights have claimed Valentin Zykov off of waivers from the Oilers.
Zykov was originally claimed off of waivers by Edmonton and only appeared in five games before being waived again. The former No.37 overall pick has just three assists in a combined 18 NHL games this season.
The Sabres placed Berglund on unconditional waivers with the intent to terminate his contract.
The Ducks have claimed Chad Johnson off of waivers from the Blues.
Claiming Johnson suggests that Ryan Miller’s lower-body injury is going to cost him a good chunk of time. The Ducks have not provided an update on Miller’s status but expect Johnson to serve as John Gibson’s backup moving forward.
The Bruins have claimed Gemel Smith off of waivers from the Stars.
Smith, 24, was a fourth-round pick in 2012 and has recorded 20 points (11G / 9A) in 77 career NHL games with Dallas. Smith is a good skater who is a good two-way forward that will help solidify the Bruins bottom-6.
The Kings have claimed Brendan Leipsic off of waivers from the Canucks.
Leipsic is the second forward that the Kings have claimed off of waivers in less than a week. Leipsic has bounced around the NHL a little bit but has produced some decent numbers at every stop. In total, he has 30 points (8G / 22A) in 81 career NHL games and should help the Kings top-9 that is lacking talent.
The Kings have claimed Nikita Scherbak off of waivers from the Canadiens.
The Oilers have claimed Valentin Zykov off of waivers from the Hurricanes.
Zykov was a second-round pick (No.37 overall) in 2013 and has accumulated 11 points (4G / 7A) in 25 career NHL games. The 23-year-old has posted outstanding numbers at the AHL level and could be a serviceable fantasy asset if he plays big minutes in the Oilers’ top-6.
The Penguins have claimed Jean-Sebastian Dea off of waivers from the Devils.
Dea broke into the NHL with the Penguins and spent four years in their organization with Wilkes-Barre/Scranton (AHL). The 24-year-old had just six games of NHL experience before this season but had five points (3G / 2A) in 20 games with the Devils before they waived him.
The Coyotes have claimed Calvin Pickard off of waivers from the Flyers.
The Coyotes are dealing with some goaltending injuries right now with both Antti Raanta and Darcy Kuemper ailing. Pickard had some ups and downs with the Flyers this season, ultimately posting a 4-2-2 record, 4.01 GAA and .863 SV% in 11 games.
