Two transactions took place on the waiver wire on Wednesday, and while one was expected, the other came from around the corner. Returning NHL player Nathan Gerbe, who was signed earlier by the Columbus Blue Jackets, has been placed on waivers, only to be able to complete the signing if he clears. 

However, the Nashville Predators have also placed veteran enforcer Cody McLeod on waivers today. 

Many people expected McLeod to be pushed on waivers earlier this month, when the Preds welcomed Ryan Ellis back into the lineup. 

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. 

A team on the lookout for grit and size might be interested in grabbing McLeod off the wire before noon tomorrow, or else, he will end up in the minors.
