Goaltender Curtis Sanford cleared waivers on Thursday and has been sent to Manitoba of the AHL
Curtis Sanford appears to be the odd man out among Vancouver’s goaltenders, as the Canucks placed him on waivers Wednesday.
CKNW in Vancouver reports that Sanford, who shared the goaltending duties with Jason Labarbera and Cory Schneider with Roberto Luongo on the shelf, will be sent to the Manitoba Moose of the AHL and the Canucks will try to accomodate a trade for him if he goes unclaimed.
The Vancouver Canucks placed Curtis Sanford on injury reserve Tuesday and listed the goaltender as week-to-week.
With star netminder Roberto Luongo (groin) still on the mend until at least the All-Star break, the Canucks acquired Jason LaBarbera from the Los Angeles Kings in exchange for a 7th round pick in the 2009 NHL Entry draft.
Sanford suffered a groin injury in Tuesday’s morning skate but had hoped the injury would loosen up prior to the evening contest against the Philadelphia Flyers.
The Boston Bruins have placed forward Patrice Bergeron on injured reserve.
“His headaches are always better as we move on. But they’re still there,” Bruins coach Claude Julien told the Globe. “That’s the reality of it. He is feeling better, and certainly at a better rate than the first time it happened. It’s not even comparable. But the headaches are still there. They’re minimizing every day and hopefully, sooner or later, they’ll disappear.”
