As we hit the middle of the week, some waiver wire news regarding the Calgary Flames. Forward Derek Ryan, waived on Tuesday, cleared waivers on Wednesday.. Forward Dominik Simon was placed on waivers on Wednesday morning. Glenn Gawdin was also assigned to the AHL’s Stockton Heat on Tuesday.
Ryan, 34, is currently on the long-term injury reserve but seems likely to be activated this week. Since he cleared waivers, he can be freely moved between the active roster and the taxi squad (or AHL) until he’s (a) played 10 NHL games or (b) spent 30 days on the roster.
