Anssi Salmela placed on Waivers


The defenseman hasn't really brought much to the table in his 11 games back since returning from an ACL injury. If a team claims him, he and his $612.5k cap hit are gone. If not, he's eligible to go to Albany. The Devils have 6 defensemen for tomorrow's game. Also, Anton Volchenkov will miss the next two games. With this move, it's possible Matt Taormina will start practicing soon.
