Avery Possibly on Re-Entry Tomorrow

Makes sense, needs to be on an NHL roster by 3pm Monday if the claiming team wants him in the post-season.

Not sure who would claim a guy who hasn't played since 1/27 though...

With the NHL trade deadline Monday at 3 p.m., and the weekend waiver period lasting for 48 hours, the Rangers would thus have to make their decision regarding Avery no later than Saturday morning so he would be eligible for claim by noon Monday.

If Avery is claimed on re-entry, the Rangers would be hit with a $209,460 salary cap charge for the remainder of the season. If Avery were to go unclaimed, the Rangers would simply put him back on waivers and re-assign him to the AHL Whale after he clears.
EDIT - Beaten to the punch, mod delete please
