Barclay Goodrow gets claimed off waivers!

Barclay Goodrow, who was placed on waivers on Tuesday by the New York Rangers has been claimed and is heading back to San Jose. The Sharks are bringing the veteran forward back to the place he started his NHL career.

This confirms the report from earlier from Mollie Walker of the NY Post that explained how the Sharks and the Rangers had an agreement in place regarding Goodrow prior to him being placed on waivers, which would be San Jose claiming him and relieving NYC of the final three years of his deal.

Therefore, the Rangers can clear some cap space as New York’s been short on cash and Goodrow was signed for three more years at a cap hit of $3.64 million.

The veteran forward has always impressed in the postseason and it was not different with the Blue Shirts as he posted six goals and eight points in 16 games after posting just four goals and 12 points in 80 games during the regular season.

He will be a great addition in San Jose, where he can lead the way of a rebuilding Sharks’ roster and be a great mentor for the talented prospects there.
