Surprising player gets waived following yesterday's game

Published April 17, 2024 at 9:28 PM

The day after the game between the Montreal Canadiens and the Detroit Red Wings at the Bell Centre, a big decision was made.

It really didn't take long, but immediately after the game against the Canadiens, forward Austin Czarnik was placed on the NHL waivers by the Wings.

It's a surprise, especially since he had a good game yesterday in Montreal (a positive differential of +2), and also because it's extremely rare, in general, to see a player placed on waivers at this time of the year.

Austin Czarnik sent to waivers after his solid game at the Bell Centre

It is indeed very rare to see players on waivers at the end of the season, but that's what the Detroit Red Wings have just announced.

"Austin Czarnik has just been placed on waivers by Steve Yzerman following the Red Wings' elimination."

Czarnik, 31, is a center who has accumulated 51 points, including 18 goals, in 205 games in the National Hockey League.

He has been the center for Patrick Kane at times with the Wings this season.

Czarnik has also accumulated 270 points in 288 games in the American Hockey League, which is a very solid production.

Details to follow.
