Claimed off waivers
Johnston has three years left on his contract with a $1.1 million cap hit.
The Avs-Canes make a trade
James O’Brien: “Gotta say, if Colorado is kindly offering to take a cheap, relatively young defenseman off your hands, you might at least wanna mull things over.”
Caleb Jones, traded to COL, is a defenceman who had some of the least bad numbers on the Hawks last year despite playing top four minutes. He’ll be the #7 on the Avs to start, but could be something there. #GoAvsGo pic.twitter.com/Zl17L3s1Bg

NHL Injury Notes
Kaedan Korczak will carry $863,000 and not his $789,000 cap hit because the Golden Knights didn’t have enough LTIR performance bonus room.
The Golden Knights now have $1.9 million in LTIR space.
