Samsonov on Re-Entry Waivers

From the AP and TSN,

Sergei Samsonov cleared NHL waivers on Monday, and was put on re-entry waivers by the Blackhawks on Tuesday.

Samsonov has appeared in 23 of Chicago’s games without scoring a goal. He has four assists, and a minus-seven plus-minus rating. He was acquired last June from Montreal for Jassen Cullimore and Tony Salmelainen. Samsonov is under contract for US$3.525 million this season and can become an unrestricted free agent next July 1.

If a team claims him, they will only have to pay half of his remaining salary, with Chicago paying the rest.
