Yesterday the Anaheim Ducks announced that Nick Ritchie and Michael Sgarbossa were being called up from San Diego. The Ducks sent Max Friberg and Korbinian Holzer down to San Diego who were waiver exempt.
Chris Wagner was also sent down and had to pass through waivers according to the rules under the CBA. A NHL club can’t waive a guy and then send him down at their convenience. A player who clears waivers does not require waivers again until they’ve spent 30 cumulative days on an NHL roster or played in 10 NHL games since they last cleared waivers. In Wagner’s case, he cleared waivers earlier in the season and has played 11 NHL games so he was no longer waiver exempt.
The Colorado Avalanche claimed Chris Wagner this morning. Wagner appeared in 11 games this season recording zero points. He had +/- of -2 and 17 total penalty minutes.
Best of luck to Wagner in Colorado!
