Manitoba bound?

The team confirmed today that Mathieu was put on waivers after attempts to trade him didn't work out. If he clears waivers, he'll be assigned to the Manitoba Moose of the AHL. Team officials expect him to be claimed, saying there was interest from several clubs. (Source: The Province)

A player claimed on waivers goes to the the team with all salary to be assumed by the new team; if he is assigned to the minors and recalled, the salary is split, with half being paid by the new team and half by the previous. Mathieu's salary may be high enough that a team hopes to split.
