TSN’s Bob McKenzie send out this blink and you’ll miss it tweet this morning:
Also on waivers: James O’Brien (OTT), Johnny Oduya (OTT), Mark Alt (PHI), John Muse (PHI), Chris Thorburn (STL).— Bob McKenzie (@TSNBobMcKenzie) February 25, 2018
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.
