Schremp claim highlights waiver-wire moves
A trio of players were reportedly claimed off waivers by NHL teams, while a pair of goaltenders have reportedly gone unclaimed Monday.

The Atlanta Thrashers have added Rob Schremp from the New York Islanders and the Calgary Flames have grabbed defenseman Brett Carson from the Carolina Hurricanes, a move confirmed by both teams. Ottawa has also claimed goaltender Curtis McElhinney

Schremp was a first-round pick in the 2004 Entry Draft by Edmonton. He has 10 goals and 22 points this season for the Islanders and is a restricted free agent at the end of this season. The Thrashers have also added Radek Dvorak from Florida in a trade and signed defenseman Mark Stuart to a three-year contract extension Monday.

Carson had no points in 13 games for the Hurricanes this season. He was a fourth-round pick by Carolina in the 2004 Entry Draft.

"We have watched Brett a lot this year," interim Flames general manager Jay Feaster told the team's website. "He's a big guy who moves the puck very well."

Tampa Bay traded Dan Ellis to Anaheim for McElhinney, but he never played for the Lightning. McElhinney was 6-9-1 with a 3.43 goals against average and an .890 save percentage for the Ducks.

Goaltenders Ty Conklin (St. Louis) and Pascal Leclaire (Ottawa) are the among the players who reportedly were not claimed. Others who reportedly weren't claimed include Islanders goaltender Nathan Lawson, Atlanta's Tim Stapleton and Jason Jaffray of Anaheim.

Washington confirmed enforcer D.J. King has cleared waivers and will remain with the team.

Quote of the Day

It was the look in his eyes. Hockey is the most important thing in his life. He wants to be a hockey player, and nothing's going to stop him from being a hockey player.
