Two interesting names have just been placed on waivers

It was finally time to find out who was placed on waivers today, and there are some interesting names.

Of course, the first right to claim a player goes to the Montreal Canadiens.

This means that Kent Hughes and Jeff Gorton can claim the player of their choice. If they want a player that is on waivers, they just have to claim him and bingo, the player in question will become a Montreal Canadiens player.

Among the many players put on today (we will publish the complete list), here are the most interesting ones:


Alex Barre-Boulet (TB)
Gemel Smith (TB)
Kevin Stenlund (WPG)
Olli Juolvei (ANA)

It's a shame because we already have a massive surplus at forward for the Tricolore, but Barre-Boulet is really interesting.

He's a 25 year old Quebecer who put up a very solid 63 points in only 58 games in the AHL last season (and 6 points in 16 NHL games). (like a Yanni Gourde or a Carter Verhaeghe)

Otherwise, there's Juolevi. A 24 year old left handed defenseman drafted 5th overall in 2016 who has battled injuries since his draft year, but had excellent potential. He has a combined 41 games in the NHL.

Juolevi is more of a long shot, but we really like Barré-Boulet and his $758,333 salary for another two years. This could really become a steal!

More details to follow!
