Canucks and Beyond
by Alanah McGinley on 10/21/08 at 02:37 PM ET
A few weeks ago, Vancouver decided they didn’t have much need for Matt Pettinger and so he was sent down to the Manitoba Moose. But injuries over the weekend have left the Canucks with only 10 forwards ready to ice for tonight’s game against the Columbus Blue Jackets and so they sought to bring Pettinger (and Kyle Wellwood) back up from the minors.
However, this morning Pettinger was claimed off waivers by the Tampa Bay Lightning. From TSN:
The Tampa Bay Lightning made a minor shuffle to their roster on Tuesday, claiming forward Mike Pettinger off re-entry waivers from the Vancouver Canucks and placing winger Jason Ward on waivers.
Assuming Wellwood clears waivers, he’ll be playing in place of Pavol Demitra tonight.
Update 9:55am PT: The TSN link above confirms that Wellwood cleared waivers today.
Update 11:10am PT: Jason Krog has been recalled to the Canucks as well.
