Kent Hughes Officially Declines Talented Player on Waivers: Eight New Opportunities Emerge to Add Talent

Here is a complete report of what happened on the NHL waivers over the last few hours.

Firstly, a player placed yesterday was claimed, and that by the Nashville Preds no less.

"The Preds have claimed forward Jaret Anderson-Dolan off waivers from Los Angeles." - Nashville




Therefore, the Montreal Canadiens officially chose to overlook Anderson-Dolan. He made it to their speaking order, but they let him go.

He could have been a very interesting addition " a la Jake Evans", or a much cheaper Christian Dvorak (especially since they need reinforcement at center), but it was ultimately the Preds who seized the opportunity.

However, this was before Kent Hughes' acquisition of Jacob Perreault, so stay tuned.

Eight players currently available for free on waivers, including Tony DeAngelo



See the complete list:

"Brendan Lemieux (CAR), Antti Raanta (CAR), Jordan Oesterle (CGY), Boris Katchouk (CHI), Evan Cormier (FLA), William Lagesson (TOR), and Tobias Bjornfot (VGK)."

And there's also defenseman Tony DeAngelo. He's the big name.

We're talking about a 28-year-old defenseman, drafted 19th overall (1st round) in 2014 by the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Over the last three seasons, he has amassed:

- 10 points in 27 games

- 42 points in 70 games

- 51 points in 64 games (solid).

At $1.675 million per year, do you believe he will be claimed? Do you think Kent Hughes should give it a try?
