players have to clear waivers by wed to play in ahl

When the summer began, it appeared players who hadn't been eligible for 50 AHL games last season wouldn't be able to return to the league this season. But that idea has been scraped. Now, all NHL players will be eligible to play in the AHL, but they must clear waivers and be assigned by Wednesday. If NHL players or those with two-way contracts aren't put on waivers, they will be considered locked out. "We're evaluating everything and debating if we want to risk putting someone like Jed Ortmeyer on waivers," Maloney said, alluding to the right wing who began and ended last season with the Pack but spent most of the time with the Rangers. "They have two-way contracts but need to clear waivers to go to the minors. It's a fairly significant risk if we put him on waivers and don't know if we want to."
