In the last few seconds, we learned the identities of the players placed in the NHL waivers today.

It's always interesting to watch, knowing that the Montreal Canadiens have first priority (the very first right to speak) to claim a player.
In addition, Jeff Gorton has said publicly that they intend to use the waiver wire to improve their roster, if the right opportunity presents itself.
So here are the nine players placed on waivers today:
Keith Kinkaid (BOS)
Joona Koppanen (BOS)
Vinni Lettieri (BOS)
Daniel Renouf (BOS)
Jayson Megna (COL)
Slater Koekkoek (EDM)
Calvin Pickard (EDM)
Lias Andersson (LA)
Jonny Brodzinski (NYR).
Notable here are goalies Keith Kinkaid and Calvin Pickard, as well as former high first round picks Slater Koekkoek and Lias Andersson.
Andersson, 23, is a former 7th overall pick, drafted in 2017 by Jeff Gorton and the New York Rangers. He has 7 goals and 17 points in his NHL career, as well as 6 goals in 4 AHL games in 2021-22 (17 points in 15 games in 2020-21).
Would Jeff Gorton like to have his former Rangers player back? It would be surprising, but you never know.

Koekkoek, 28, was drafted 10th overall in 2012 by the Tampa Bay Lightning. He has 34 points in 186 career NHL games. He recently had some good times with the Edmonton Oilers.
Special mention should also be given to right-handed defenseman Jonny Brodzinski, who has accumulated more than a point per game in the AHL since 2020 (56 points in 50 games). He is very reliable defensively and has over 80 games of NHL experience.
More details will follow, and hopefully more interesting players!
