I'd be surprised if he got picked off waivers, it would suck for the Dogs to lose him since he would be one of their top players and would help with the rookies as he will take off some of the offensive pressure since he will put up points.

Agreed, he would be a good guy to have with the Dogs to help with all the young prospects we are going to have this year. Having some "older" forward prospects like Palushaj (4th year pro), Dumont (3rd year pro), Schultz (3rd year pro), Blunden (7 year pro), Geoffrion (3rd year pro) should help, while it's not a very old group, all of them except Schultz have NHL experience at least so they should help the rookies with their transition to the AHL.

If I read the above correctly, he hasn't played enough NHL games to lose his waiver exemption.
He has to clear waivers to be sent down.
