Flames Place Niklas Hagman on Waivers

As reported earlier over at FlamesNation, underachieving forward Niklas Hagman was placed on waivers by the Flames this morning. Hagman has not scored in 15 games and has just 14 goals and 35 points since joining the Flames last January, but it's hard to believe that a desperate team with injury problems wouldn't be willing to give up something for the 31-year old who had three consecutive 20+ goal seasons before landing in Calgary. His former team the Dallas Stars could be just one organization looking to add a replacement body on the cheap. 

It seems unlikely that he'll go unclaimed, but if he does, he will reportedly be assigned to the Heat, as per Abbotsford Times reporter Cam Tucker
