According TVA Sports Renaud Lavoie, yesterday(9/28/15) the Anaheim Ducks placed Max Friberg, Matthew Hackett, and Michael Sgarbossa on waivers.

UPDATE: According to Elliotte Friedman, all NHL players placed on waivers yesterday have cleared them. This is good news as Friberg, Hackett, and Sgarbossa will all stay in the Ducks organization and likely play in San Diego to start this season.

    • Friberg was a contender for a roster spot. The team kept Ritchie instead so they must see more value in his game at the moment. The Ducks are also loaded at the forward position with all the off season moves.


    • “Waivers” can be boiled down to 2 situations:
      1. You don’t like a player and/or his salary so you put him on “waivers” hoping another team will pick him up.
      2. You like a player but you need to send him down to the minors. He HAS to be put on “waivers” to be demoted because of the CBA, but you hope another team WON’T pick him up.

      Friberg fits in the latter.

      Every player has “waiver” privileges on for a demotion based on their draft year/age/games played/etc.
