Note: Player Movement During The Lockout

At USA Today, Kevin Allen obtained a memo that the NHLPA sent out to it’s members recently to prepare them for what could/will happen during a lockout.

The memo notes that the NHLPA is under the impression that since teams did not make player related transactions during previous lockouts, they will not make moves during this lockout.

“During previous lockouts, the clubs did not trade players or the rights to players after the lockout started. We expect that clubs will take the same position in the event of another lockout.”

There are conflicting reports about how waivers would impact players going to the AHL.
