According to Sportsnet's Elliotte Friedman, the Boston Bruins have placed 16-year NHL veteran Anton Stralman
on waivers for the purpose of sending him to the American Hockey League.
Stralman, 36, joined the Bruins in training camp on a professional try-out contract (PTO) and on the opening day of the 2022-23 season, they signed him to a one-year deal worth $1 million.
In eight games this season for the Bruins, the Tibro (Sweden) native has failed to record any points, has two penalty minutes and is a minus-three.
There are several teams that are in need of a right-shot, veteran defenceman, so there may be some interest in placing a claim on him before 2 p.m. ET on Tuesday. Because the waiver order is determined by NHL standings (32nd having first dibs), the Anaheim Ducks would have the first chance at making a claim.
In other related news, Riley Sheahan, formerly of the Buffalo Sabres, has cleared unconditional waivers and is now an unrestricted free agent.
