CHICAGO (AP) -The Chicago Blackhawks have put goalie Nikolai Khabibulin on waivers, according to a person within the league.
The person spoke on the condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to discuss the move.
Khabibulin is entering the final season of a four-year, $27 million contract. He joined the Blackhawks from Tampa Bay as a free agent after leading the Lightning to the 2004 Stanley Cup.
The Blackhawks signed free agent goalie Cristobal Huet to a four-year, $22.5 million deal in July, giving them two top goaltenders.
The 35-year-old Khabibulin allowed 2.63 goals per game last season. His record was 23-20.
