Correct, But my point was if Faulk's injury keeps him out of the lineup for some games (but not bad enough to go on IR), they may want to add another defenseman on the roster for the next few games since they would only have 6 healthy defensemen without Faulk. If Faulk will miss a few games and they want to add a D-Man to the roster as insurance, then the only option is to send Boychuk or Welsh down. Welsh doesn't have to pass through waivers.

Anyhow, I was only speculating as I have no idea how serious the injury to Faulk even is. I suspect it's more likely what Joe and other's said about letting Welsh get some PT in the AHL.
