Lock-Out Waiver Period

Per Renaud Lavoie

NHL and NHLPA agreed to put a special waiver period in place, starting right now until September 15...
That way, veteran players of the AHL, with 2 way contract, are going to have the right to play for their farm team.
They won't have to be put on re-entry waivers if they are call back 3 days before the start of the season.
So, it's basically allowing players like, say Dane Byers for Edmonton, who is on a 2-way deal, to clear waivers and make him eligible to play in the AHL during the lock-out. It's a classy move, because a guy like Byers isn't likely going to play much in the NHL gets a chance to earn a living instead of being stuck in limbo for a lock-out that is never likely going to affect him much.
