Nicklas Hagman was claimed on waivers by Anahiem from Calgary on Monday, November 14th. He had to wait for visa, and he did not play until Thursday, November 17th with Anaheim. He missed a game on Wednesday, November 16th.

Since I imagine the Ducks started the process as soon as possible on Monday (he was a Duck by 9 AM local time) and Dallas probably started the process as soon as possible this morning with Smith, it would seem Wednesday might be out of the question.

However, it's reasonable to assume that Hagman's situation is easier since he was likely just renewing a previously expired visa (he played for Florida and Dallas before going to Canada).
