With the NHL season now in full swing and many transactions taking place between the San Jose Sharks and Worcester Sharks there’s lots of questions about waivers and the new collective bargaining agreement between the NHL and NHLPA. The major change in the new agreement involves re-entry waivers, where a player making more than $105,000 in the AHL would need to pass through waivers to be recalled to the NHL. Re-entry waivers no longer exist. Players may now be recalled from the AHL to the NHL without the need of passing though waivers.

The waiver rules for assigning players from the NHL to AHL are basically unchanged. The only difference is if player is on emergency recall he will now need to clear waivers to be assigned to the minor leagues after 10 games or 30 days on the NHL roster, both cumulative, have elapsed just like a standard recall.

The following players are on the SJ Sharks roster and would need to clear waivers to be sent to the AHL

Boyle, Dan
Braun, Justin
Burish, Adam
Burns, Brent
Couture, Logan
