As the regular season approaches, NHL teams are concentrating on cutting down their rosters. It means a lot of players are being sent to the junior squads and others are being waived in order to be sent to the AHL, if they're older.

This may be the first of many times when NHL veterans have to fight their way back up to the big league after being waived today.
