According to TSN, Edmonton Oilers
defenseman Sheldon Souray
has cleared waivers.
Souray signed a five-year contract in 2007 that was supposed to see him in Edmonton through the end of the 2011-12 season, and the 33-year-old's no-move clause has expired.
"I understand the business side of things and I hope things work out for both the Oilers and for myself," the blueliner told TSN on Friday when he was placed on waivers.
The Oilers defenseman gave GM Steve Tambellini a list of preferences back in January in the event that he would be shipped out before the March 3 trading deadline. Souray was also on the record as saying he'd waive his no-movement clause if the circumstances were to his liking.
Souray had 4 goals and 9 assists in 34 games with Edmonton this season.
