Krajicek, MacKenzie Placed on Waivers

Tampa Bay Lightning v New Jersey Devils

According to Lightning Strikes with Damian Cristodero defenseman Lukas Krajicek was placed on waivers.  Coming over in a trade for Shane O’Brien, the 26-year-old registered two goals and 18 assists in games over 92 games and two seasons.  Originally drafted by the Florida Panthers  in the first round, 24th overall the native of Prostejov, Czechoslovakia carries a lofty 1.4 million cap hit and will most likely not be claimed with the cap crunch most teams are in.

In other news Aaron Portline of The Columbus Dispatch writes the Blue Jackets placed Derek MacKenzie on waivers. A favorite of coach Ken Hitchcock, the 28-year-old produced six points over three seasons and 34 games with the team.  MacKenzie gets sent down in hopes he goes unclaimed, as he is a casualty of the numbers crunch.  The team needs to make a move in order to activate left wing Fredrik Modin.
