Zaitsev and Reilly clear waivers and Hellberg gets claimed
Laurent Brossoit on waivers
Chris Johnston: The Vegas Golden Knights have put Laurent Brossoit on waivers.
Jesse Granger: “If Laurent Brossoit clears waivers and is assigned to Henderson it would clear $1.125M in cap space (the maximum amount that can be buried in the minors). If anyone claims Brossoit it would obviously clear the full $2.325M.”

What about a “time clause” for calling goals back
“The idea of tweaking this rule is pretty much a hard “no” by the NHL decision-makers, although some I’ve talked to wondered about maybe talking about the idea of a “time clause”. So if the goal is scored in 20 or 30 seconds after the puck has crossed the blue line and the offensive team has entered the zone, then it’s a good goal. I think this is going be a difficult sell.”
Brodeur named executive VP of Hockey Ops
TSN: Martin Brodeur has been named executive vice-president of hockey operations for the New Jersey Devils. Pierre LeBrun says that Brodeau is focusing on hockey operations and no longer has business responsibilities.
“One thing Brodeur wanted to stress to me was that he reports to Devils general manager Tom Fitzgerald. This isn’t Brodeur coming in and being president of hockey operations. He’s working under Fitzgerald as Brodeur continues to learn this craft.
Let’s also be honest, he has a pretty good relationship with the owners in New Jersey.”
