The Blues put Andre Heim on waivers
Chris Johnston: The St. Louis Blues have put Andre Heim on unconditional waivers for the purpose of terminating his contract.
Brett Howden suspended for two games
Frank Seravalli: Because of their salary cap situation four teams were playing short a roster player last night – Los Angeles Kings, Ottawa Senators, Vancouver Canucks, and the Edmonton Oilers.
Bruce Garrioch: “I am led to believe if Norris can’t play Saturday this would allow them to make an emergency recall.”
Puck Pedia: “After playing short for 1 game, the #Sens could use an emergency exception recall on a player with a cap hit of $875K or less. He would not count against the cap until they have 20 healthy players.”
NHL Injury Notes
Aaron Portzline: Columbus Blue Jackets coach Paul Vincent on Jordan Dumais’ upper-body injury that has him on the IR: “Nothing serious, it’s just that we want to protect our player. We want him to see a doctor, and we want to take care of him here.”
Once Dumais is ready to come off the IR, he’ll likely be sent to Halifax of the QMJHL.
