Chicago Blackhawks placed forward Mark McNeill and Brandon Mashinter are waivers on Monday reported Athletic Scott Powers. McNeill is a former first-round pick and a player far more likely to be lost in vain.
Another 29 NHL has 24 hours to decide to present a claim either player. If the number of teams to place claims on one player, he is granted a team with a worse record in 2015-16. If there are no set requirements, so McNeill and Mashinter assigned to AHL Rockford to open the season.
McNeill, 23, with the Blackhawks Jersey were picked No. 18 overall pick in the 2011 NHL Draft. He was a slow developer, and spent the last couple of years with a prominent role IceHogs. However, he has been regularly passing the depth chart, where it is the last missed opportunity to him to make the NHL roster.
It was involved in trade rumors during the summer McNeill, although this would be a real test of his worth. It will be fair to wonder why the Hawks not only trade McNeill leftovers if he gets claimed off waivers. On the flip side, if you McNeill erase that you get to go a long way toward showing how far his value has dipped from around the league.
Mashinter, 28, is routinely introduced from the bottom six role in Chicago. He scored four goals in 41 games, and also had four goals in 12 games for Rockford. Chicago signed him to a one-year contract extension in June, and he will give depth to the possibility of barring the unlikely he claimed.
