NHL Notes

REDDEN RUMOURED TO BE PUT ON WAIVERS
According to various media reports veteran defenseman Wade Redden is about to be put on waivers by the New York Rangers. This 33 year-old who in his second year with the Rangers scored two goals and 14 points would be assigned to their AHL team if no other NHL team claims the 13 year veteran. Redden who is a former 1995 second overall pick by the New York Islanders has scored 106 goals and 450 points in 994 career games with the Ottawa Senators and the Rangers.

STAAL MOVES THAT MUCH CLOSER TO BEING A HURRICANE
On Saturday Jared Staal’s dream of playing in the NHL got that much closer when the 20 year-old survived the team’s latest round of cuts. Staal was originally drafted second round in 2008 by the Phoenix Coyotes and was traded to Carolina last May for a draft pick. Last season Staal scored 12 goals and 49 points with the OHL’s Sudbury Wolves. Jared who is skating with Eric in Carolina would be the fourth Staal brother to make the NHL.

MUELLER OUT INDEFINATELY WITH CONCUSSION
The Colorado Avalanche who were one of the surprise teams last season suffered a huge blow when forward Peter Mueller suffered what was his second concussion in less than a six month span. Mueller who on September 10 signed a two- year 4 million dollar contract suffered his latest concussion last Wednesday in a pre-season game against the Los Angeles Kings. Last year Mueller who is only 22 years-old suffered a season ending concussion that cost him the final four games of the regular season along with the playoffs.
