The Red Wings have claimed Jacob De La Rose off of waivers from the Canadiens.
The Avalanche have claimed Marko Dano off of waivers from the Jets.
Dano was a first round pick (No.27 overall) in 2013 but had just two goals and one assist in 23 games with the Jets last season. A deep lineup in Winnipeg forced Dano to play a third or fourth line role, but he could get a bigger chance with the Avalanche, who are devoid of middle-6 wingers.
The Sabres have claimed Remi Elie off of waivers from Dallas.
Elie was a second-round pick of the Stars (No.40 overall) in 2013, but has picked up just 21 points (7G / 14A) in 90 career NHL games. Elie hasn’t had a lot of offensive success at the AHL-level either, so he could have a tough time cracking a suddenly deep Sabres lineup.
The Capitals have claimed Dmitrij Jaskin off of waivers from St. Louis.
Jaskin played in a career-high 76 games last season, but scored just six goals and 11 assists (17 points) while averaging just 12:27 TOI/GM. Jaskin does carry an impressive 52.7 CorsiFor% and +2.5 relative Corsi in 266 career games, but has never been the offensive force that he was when he put up 99 points (46G / 53A) in 51 QMJHL games in 2013. Jaskin will fight with Chandler Stephenson and Nathan Walker for playing time in the Capitals’ bottom-6.
The Flyers have claimed Calvin Pickard off of waivers from the Toronto.
Pickard found himself fourth on the goaltending depth chart in Toronto and needed to go through waivers to head back to the Marlies (AHL). With Michal Neuvirth battling injury to start the season, Pickard will likely start the year as Brian Elliott’s backup.
The Hurricanes have claimed Curtis McElhinney off of waivers from Toronto.
McElhinney lost the backup job in Toronto to Garret Sparks, so he was placed on waivers and picked up by the Hurricanes. McElhinney figures to serve as Petr Mrazek’s backup while Scott Darling (lower-body) is out, but will likely find himself back on waivers after that.
The Ducks have claimed Pontus Aberg off of waivers from the Oilers.
Aberg picked up eight points (2G / 6A) in 16 games with the Oilers after being claimed from Nashville. The 25-year-old has registered just 18 points (5G / 13A) in 68 career NHL games. He landed on waivers after the emergence of Ty Rattie and Kailer Yamamoto in training camp and heads to Anaheim, who lost Corey Perry to knee surgery in the preseason.
The Senators have placed Zack Smith on waivers.
Smith has three-years left on his contract, that has a modified no-trade clause. Placing him on waivers may be a way around the no-trade, but Smith is one of the better forwards on a bad Senators team and giving him away for nothing seems counterproductive. The 30-year-old had 19 points (5G / 14A) in 68 games a season ago.
The Avalanche have claimed Mark Alt off of waivers from the Flyers.
Alt has spent the majority of his career in the AHL, registering 78 points in 260 games across six seasons. He has 0 points and is a -1 in 9 career NHL games. He holds little to no fantasy value.
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.
The Flyers have claimed Johnny Oduya off of waivers from the Senators.
Oduya doesn't offer much fantasy value at this point in his career. Even while playing on the top pair alongside Erik Karlsson he couldn't muster more than a measly 8 points (4G/4A) in 51 games this season. Nevertheless, he adds some much needed depth and stability to the Flyers' blue line.
The Kings have placed Wedgewood on waivers.
The Lightning have claimed Dumont off waivers from the Senators.
The Blue Jackets have claimed Chorney off waivers from the Capitals.
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 Rangers have claimed Cody McLeod off of waivers from the Predators.
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.
