It might be a sign that Mathieu Schneider’s playing days in the NHL are nearing an end.
On Tuesday, the Vancouver Canucks placed the 40-year old blueliner on waivers. Schneider is now eligible to be claimed by Noon et on Wednesday by any club, with the Canucks on the hook for half his remaining salary. If he clears waivers, the Canucks can opt to send him down to the Manitoba Moose of the American Hockey League.
In 17 games this season, Schneider has two goals and three assists.
