Mark Streit is back, someone had to go.

Ron Hextall had to place someone on waivers today!

Mark Streit is back, someone had to go.

We reported you earlier today that the Flyers would need to make a move in order to insert Mark Streit in the lineup. While we thought Ron Hextall would send down one of his assets that was waivers-exempted (Roman Lyubimov), the Flyers General manager decided to place Boyd Gordon on waivers.

Gordon is carrying a $950.000 cap hit and scored 1 goal for the season in 13 games. While Boyd's offensive production was almost non-existent, Dave Hakstol relied on Gordon to take important faceoffs in the defensive zone.

Hopefully nobody will claim him and he'll rejoin the Leigh Valley Phantoms organization.
