The Flyers have placed David Schlemko on unconditional waivers for the purpose of a buyout.

Schlemko had one-year left at $2.1M but was not going to crack the Flyers blueline this season. The buyout will give the Flyers a little extra cap-space heading into free agency on July 1.

Schlemko is expected to be a healthy scratch on Thursday.

Schlemko has been held pointless in his last five games and was a minus-1 in 18:35 TOI in Minnesota on Tuesday. The Canadiens were blown out so they will make some changes tonight vs. the Hurricanes. Mike Reilly is expected to replace Schlemko on the blueline.

Schlemko is expected to miss six weeks with a knee injury.

Schlemko suffered a knee injury during Wednesday’s preseason game against the Maple Leafs. The Canadiens announced that the veteran defenseman is expected to miss a month and a half, which means that either Mike Reilly will likely have a spot in the opening night roster.

Schlemko (illness) did not travel on the Canadiens three-game road trip.

Schlemko is dealing with an illness so he did not accompany the team on their southern road trip. Schlemko is staying back with Shea Weber, so Brett Lernout has been recalled from Laval (AHL) to take his spot on the trip.

Schlemko (hand) has been assigned to Laval (AHL) on a conditioning stint.

Schlemko has missed the first four games of the season with a hand injury that he suffered in the preseason. Schlemko will be a welcomed addition to the Canadiens’ blueline when he is healthy, but he’ll get at least one game in Laval before making his debut. Schlemko had two goals and 16 assists (18 points) in 62 games with San Jose last season.

The Canadiens have placed David Schlemko (hand) on injured reserve.

Schlemko has been battling a hand injury throughout training camp and his movement to IR means that he will miss at least the first week of the regular season. With Schlemko out, Victor Mete has made the opening night roster and will play on the top pair with Shea Weber.

The Canadiens have acquired David Schlemko from the Golden Knights for a 2019 5th round pick.

Schlemko, 30, was picked from the San Jose Sharks in Wednesday’s Expansion Draft and dealt to the Canadiens this afternoon. Schlemko is a steady second pairing defenseman who has 20-plus point upside, but hasn’t appeared in more than 67 games in a single year in his NHL career. He posted 18 points (2G / 16A) in 62 games with the Sharks last year and will replace Alexei Emelin on the Habs’ blueline after Emelin was also chosen by Vegas.
