Darche passed the waiver limit last weekend. There was some discussion on RDS and such about whether he'd play against Pittsburgh last Saturday. He did, and now he's with the team for the year unless he goes down via waivers.

Perhaps there is an NHLPA rule against conditioning stints during the Olympics. Given D'Ago accepted one already, I am surprised the team didn't send him down again to try and find his game.
