We've reached that time of the year when there's a flurry of activity on the NHL waivers.

We sometimes get surprises, as was the case with Ty Smith and the Pittsburgh Penguins, and here's another one.

According to renowned Elliotte Friedman from Sportsnet, Lassi Thomson, a first-round pick by the Ottawa Senators in 2019, will be available on waivers starting at 2 p.m. today.

Let's remember that the Sens are in a tight spot with the salary cap.


Thomson, the 19th overall pick in 2019, has scored 33 points in 56 AHL games, and he has recorded five assists in 18 career games in the NHL.

Kent Hughes loves the players from the 2019 Draft, will he jump at the opportunity?

I wouldn't think so, but the San Jose Sharks would be interested in claiming him.

Stay tuned. We are talking about a 19th overall pick from a recent draft who is starting to show promising signs of progress.

A bold move by the Sens!
