Designating Players for Assignment

I noticed on this transaction page (Link below) that Henrik Karlsson has been "designated for assignment." I know what that means in baseball but what does it mean in hockey? Is that just a fancy term for "assign"?

I don't see the term used very much.

It just means they sent him to another team most likely their AHL or ECHL affiliate
