by Press Release /

EDMONTON, AB - The Carolina Hurricanes claimed goaltender Anton Forsberg via waivers from the Oilers on Tuesday after Edmonton designated him one day prior.

The 28-year-old netminder spent the 2019-20 season with the Hurricanes organization, splitting time between the NHL club and their AHL affiliate, the Charlotte Checkers.

The Oilers signed Forsberg to a one-year contract on Oct. 9, 2020 and the Swede was in line to be the team's third goalie behind Mikko Koskinen and Mike Smith.

Edmonton also placed forwards Jujhar Khaira, Patrick Russell, Joakim Nygard and Alan Quine on waivers Monday, but they all cleared and will remain with the club.

No additional players were placed on waivers Tuesday.
