Plenty of waiver wire action in the NHL today!


Over a dozen players have been placed on waivers across the NHL today as teams begin the process of trimming down training camp rosters for the start of the 2021 NHL season.

NHL insider Chris Johnston of TSN with the full list of players made available today:

The list includes Benjamin Gleason (DAL), Joel L’Esperance (DAL), Zac Dalpe (FLA), Noah Juulsen (FLA), Samuel Montembeault (FLA), Kevin Czuczman (MIN), Joe Hicketts (MIN), Dakota Mermis (MIN), Mason Shaw (MIN), Taylor Fedun (PIT), Jayden Halbgewachs (SJ), Joel Kellman (SJ), Jaycob Megna (SJ), Nick Merkley (SJ), Teemu Kivihalme (TOR).

Everyone else from Thursday’s waivers have cleared. 

It’s worth noting as well that players have until tomorrow evening to decide whether or not they will opt out of the 2021-22 NHL season.
