We told you about it last night, we have seen a big surprise on the waivers market!

The Pittsburgh Penguins placed the name of forward Kasperi Kapanen on waivers, he was available for free, and teams had until 2pm to claim him.

The verdict just in.

Kapanen has been claimed by the St. Louis Blues.

Kapanen, 26, drafted 22nd overall in 2014 (first round) amassed:

- 20 points in 43 games this season

- 32 points in 79 games in 2021-22

- 30 points in 40 games in 2020-21

- 36 points in 69 games in 2019-20

- 44 points in 78 games in 2018-19

He has 70 goals in 364 career NHL games, and his greatest strength is definitely his skating stroke. He's really fast.

In August 2020, let's actually remember that the Penguins paid a lot to acquire him. They gave:

- David Warsofsky
- Evan Rodrigues
- A former 2nd round pick (Hallander)
- A first round pick in 2020.

In exchange for Kapanen.

And they put him on waivers.

Kasperi Kapanen earns 3.2 million per season through 2024.
