Players that are placed on waivers on Monday can stay on active NHL rosters if teams don’t select to send them to the AHL or put them on their taxi squads, according to PuckPedia. They would need to clear waivers again after 10 games and 30 days on an NHL roster, they also noted.
The Islanders have been reportedly trying to move some players before the start of the season this week. Over the weekend, The Fourth Period reported that the Islanders had been close on a deal to send Hickey to the Detroit Red Wings, but it fell apart after Detroit claimed Christian Djoos off waivers.
The report came after the Islanders signed their most important restricted free agent on Saturday, Mathew Barzal.
What came as no surprise was word that Ho-Sang and Jobst cleared the waiver wire. The continuing saga between Ho-Sang and the Islanders took its latest term when they placed him on waivers on Sunday.
Ho-Sang’s intention, according to the New York Post’s Mollie Walker, is to report to the Islanders AHL affiliate in Bridgeport if the team wants him there.
The Islanders open the regular season on Thursday for the first of two games against the New York Rangers at Madison Square Garden. They play their first home game of the year on Monday at Nassau Coliseum against the Boston Bruins.
