The Flames have claimed Chris Stewart off of waivers from the Wild.

Stewart has just 13 points (9G/4A) in 47 games this season. He was having a hard time staying in the Wild lineup, as him and Marcus Foligno were in a bit of a timeshare for the 12th forward spot. After averaging just 10 minutes of ice time per game this season, he may see an increased workload in Calgary so long as Michael Ferland (undisclosed) remains sidelined.

Jagr has cleared waivers and is expected to return to HC Kladno (Czech).

It looks like it’s the end of an era for one of the NHL’s All-Time greats. After picking up 43 goals and 69 assists (112 points) in 161 games over the last two seasons with the Panthers, he signed with the Flames this offseason. It was believed that Jagr still had something left in the tank but injuries limited to just 22 games through the Flames first 49 games and his NHL career will likely end on a disappointing note.

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 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 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.
