Blues place Chris Thorburn on waivers

The fourth-liner was supposed to fill in for Ryan Reaves.

TSN’s Bob McKenzie send out this blink and you’ll miss it tweet this morning:

Today was a rough day for former Thrashers (Odyua, Thorburn, and Postma).

Chris Thorburn was picked up this summer as a “replacement” for Ryan Reaves, and while he participated in a few fights, overall he was a non-factor on the ice. Thorburn has zero goals, four assists, and 33 PIM on the season.

This move clears space for Zach Sanford as well as new arrival Nikita Soshnikov.
