The Flames have sent three players to waivers this morning. All three are eligible to be claimed by the rest of the NHL, and are as follows:
Because of Zohorna’s recent stint in Pittsburgh, they are the only team eligible to send him directly to their AHL affiliate if they can re-claim him.
Should Valimaki clear waivers and be sent down to the AHL Calgary Wranglers, his two-way contract will drop his Flames cap hit to $425 000 from his $1.55M NHL level cap hit.
Waivers clear tomorrow morning, Sunday October 9th at 10:00AM Mountain Time. We’ll know more then about how everything shakes out.
