Blackhawks Place Collin Delia, Malcolm Subban on Waivers
On Sunday, the Blackhawks placed two goaltenders on waivers: Collin Delia and Malcolm Subban.
The hope is that both clear and head to Rockford. However, teams looking for an inexpensive backup for their NHL roster may be willing to poach one from the Blackhawks for nothing.
Kevin Lankinen will back up Marc-Andre Fleury this season in Chicago… to the surprise of nobody.
On Sunday morning, Scott Powers at The Athletic updated the contract status of Alex Nylander, who apparently will not need to clear waivers to play in Rockford this season. According to Powers, for waivers purposes the league is not considering last year part of Nylander’s service time; he’s 53 NHL games short of being waiver exempt. He was sent to the AHL on Sunday.

unless barry trotz’ goalie coach mitch Korn gets a hold of these two, hawks will never regret it if either or both is/are poached
Good news re: Nylander. Gives him time to prove or disprove whether he is an NHL player. A win/win for the Hawks for not losing him on waivers for nothing.
Likely one of Subban or Delia gets claimed, good chance Habs might take one until Price is ready. Be good to have one for callup until Soderblom gets some games in.
Nylander exempted from waivers again another year, go play in Rfd. and try to earn his way back i guess. Still kind of expect a trade could happen before tomorrow. If not interesting to see how the ltir wheel goes, somebody has to be on ltir before season starts, either Shaw or injured Dmen and one or other on ltir opening day. If Shaw alot less maneuvering for opening day but until somebody moved be tighter as season goes on.
re Ian – neither defenseman will be on LTIR because neither will be out long enough to warrant it. Andrew Shaw will be as soon as the clock strikes midnight, however. That way the Hawks maximize their cap.
Nylander going to Rockford is as much because he isn’t healthy yet and his wheels aren’t there as it is about the NHL roster having enough depth that they don’t need to carry him.
“for waiver purposes the league is not considering last year part of Nylander’s service time”. LOL!!! even the league sees something StanBo cannot.
I expect Subban to be claimed off waivers
Ian – without doing the math it seems with only 13 FWs on roster and some paper transactions before Tuesday and then Shaw to LTIR that they’ll have room to bring people up from RKF as needed
Gus back for 800k for a year. Looks like roster could be 12 fwds from last night plus Hagel and Gaudette, the 6D from last night plus Gus and MAF and Lank of course. Shaw on off season ltir to allow them have 85.4m capspace on opening day, plus Kalynuk and C. Jones on ir, use ltir for a callup if needed. Numbers with 2 goalies waived and Nylander sent down should work and use most of Shaw’s space up for opening day.
If Entwistle has made the team that’s great
He’ll play so someone who expected to play like Khaira or Carp or Strome (most likely) will be a healthy scratch along with Gaudette to start
I guess Gus will fit right in here no D.
Should the Hawks get Barré-Boulet on Waiver . Salary cap is 760,000 .. 24 y o . Good player with good speed . Just a thought
Gus back? Flat out stupid. Guy is an absolute disaster in his own own. Bowman just can’t help himself.
Wrap 14 fwds., 12 from Saturday plus Hagel and Gaudette. Tab C. Jones 4 to 6 weeks definitely would be long enough for a 10 game 24 day ltir window. Kalynuk be on the bubble, 3 and half weeks , 10th game is Nov. 1st. That said if Shaw used to open season on ltir, may not need in season right away.
Hagel took a puck in practice was in alot of pain, then didn’t play Saturday, traveled with team so maybe was a game time decision. Mighta been ga m’ e time decision, hopefully ready for opener.
Nylander to Rkfd Is a good thing for HAWKS not so much for Icehogs though
Yes he has potential but doesn’t have the heart for it IMO
