Tampa Bay Lightning Place Forward On Waivers

The Tampa Bay Lightning have placed Rudolfs Balcers on waivers.

Balcers just completed his conditioning stint with the Syracuse Crunch, so he needed to be put on the waiver wire to remain with them from here. If he clears, he will continue to play for the Crunch, but there certainly is a chance that another team could elect to claim him off of waivers from here.

The Lightning claimed Balcers off of waivers from the Florida Panthers earlier this season, so we very well could see the Panthers decide to bring him right back. In 17 games split between the two teams, he has three goals and five points.
