NHL waiver wire roundup: Canadiens, Oilers make moves

Mark Spector joins Gene Principe to talk about the Oilers, what moves they can make at the deadline, and if GM Peter Chiarelli is looking ahead to the draft.

In the midst of a lacklustre start to deadline day, a handful of teams made additions via the waiver wire.

The Edmonton Oilers claimed forward Adam Cracknell from the Vancouver Canucks and defenceman Adam Pardy from the Winnipeg Jets.

Gritty forward Mike Brown was claimed by the Montreal Canadiens. Brown had three points and 63 penalty minutes in 44 games with the San Jose Sharks this season.

Also, the New Jersey Devils claimed defenceman David Warsofsky from the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Toronto Maple Leafs’ recently-acquired goalie Alex Stalock cleared waivers, as did Colorado Avalanche netminder Reto Berra, Rene Bourque of the Columbus Blue Jackets and Boston Bruins forward Zac Rinaldo.
