Calgary Flames Place Defenseman on Waivers

The Calgary Flames have placed Nicolas Meloche on waivers. 

This is a last-minute cut made by the Flames, but alas, Meloche is now hitting the waiver wire. The 25-year-old spent this past season with the San Jose Sharks, where he had two goals and seven points in 50 games. With that, he also played in 10 games with the AHL affiliate, the San Jose Barracuda, where he scored a goal and had a minus-9 rating.

It will be interesting to see if a team in need of some defensive depth considers the prospect of claiming Meloche. Overall, he could be a decent bottom-pairing or extra defenseman, so it isn't entirely out of the question. Alas, time will tell what happens on that front.
