On Monday the Blackhawks placed Anton Lindholm, John Quenneville, Nick Seeler and Matt Tomkins on waivers.
None of those should be surprising given the relative depth on the NHL roster.
One name not on this list who would have required waivers to go to Rockford is Brandon Pirri. The veteran forward appears to be safe with the NHL club for now.
Not every team’s waiver list was as vanilla as the Hawks’ is, however.
Tampa Bay placed Tyler Johnson and Luke Schenn on waivers while Montreal did the same with veteran forwards Corey Perry and Michael Frolik.
50 additional players on waivers today. Extremely busy day for NHL movement. pic.twitter.com/PzgK7yVB8j— James Mirtle (@mirtle) January 11, 2021
