The Nashville Predators have also placed veteran enforcer Cody McLeod on waivers on Wednesday, and now another team jumps on the opportunity to add his grit and size to their lineup.
On Thursday just before noon, the New York Rangers claimed McLeod off the waiver wire.
Last season, McLeod left the Colorado Avalanche with a one-way ticket to Nashville, with forward prospect Felix Girard going the other way.
Never drafted by an NHL team, the 33-year-old McLeod has managed to play in 713 games in the League, in which he tallied 71 goals and 124 points, along with a total of 1524 penalty minutes.
This season, he managed to be moved ahead of the trade deadline, via waivers. He could be added to the Rangers' lineup, or head to the Wold pack in the minors.
