Afternoon Hits: Waivers, Wilson, Pirri, Zanon and Legein


  • Darren Dreger: On waivers today: STL places K.Aucoin, A.Bolduc, P.Cannone, T.Chorney, C.Hanson, M.Mancari, T.Shattock; DAL place T.King;  CBJ places S.Machacek, P.McNeill, F.St-Denis; Phil places Y.Danis, B.Holmstrom, K. Newbury, M.A. Bourdon. Tim Wharnsby: On waivers today: Mtl place Mayer; Van places Pelletier, Stuart, Hamill, Cgy places Cundari, Byron, Nemisz.
  • Chuck Gormley of CSN Washington: Capitals coach Adam Oates said they “need” Tom Wilson in their lineup. He could start on the fourth line and work his way up. If they keep him, they’d be over the salary cap by $628,462 and would have to either make a trade or put someone on waivers. Candidates could be Jason Chimera [1 year, $1.75 million], Mathieu Perreault [1 year, $1.05 million] or Jay Beagle [2 years, $900,000 per]. Other options could be Aaron Volpatti [2 years, $575,000 per] and Tomas Kundratek [two years, $550,000] but moving just one wouldn’t be enough.
  • Mark Lazerus: Blackhawks Brandon Pirri didn’t finish practice today. According to coach Joel Quenneville said that “he’s still in the mix” but health will be a factor.
  • Josh Rimer: Greg Zanon signed a AHL PTO with the San Antonio Rampage.
  • James Mirtle: The Toronto Marlies sign Stefan Legein to a tryout.
