The Vancouver Canucks have placed forward Loui Eriksson on waivers.
The veteran winger was placed there Wednesday morning after only appearing in one game this season.
According to The Athletic’s Thomas Drance, the move was done to reset the waiver exemption clock on Eriksson.
In waiver terms we're now 28 days out from players clearing following waiver wire armageddon day (Jan 11, 2021).
Over the next two days you'll probably see a bunch of relatively veteran depth/taxi squad guys hit the waiver wire to re-clear.

Eriksson, 35, has one year remaining on his $6-million contract.
