It’s a roster packed with veterans on the waiver wire Friday, including Jordan Martinook, Mattias Janmark, Anton Khudobin and Andreas Johnsson.
The St. Louis Blues were the most active with waivers today, sending forwards Martin Frk, Matthew Highmore and Klim Kostin to the AHL.
The nine players placed on waivers Thursday were eliminated.
Here is the full list of canceled players on Friday:
Jordan Martinook, LW (Carolina)
Anton Khudobin, G (Dallas)

Martinook, 30, spent the previous four seasons with the Carolina Hurricanes but could find himself in the AHL for the first time since the 2014-15 season when he was with the Arizona Coyotes. In 59 games last season, he had six goals, nine assists and 15 points.
Khudobin, 36, is in the final year of a three-year, $3,333,333 cap with the Dallas Stars that hasn’t aged well at all over the length of the contract. He signed the deal after a strong playoff run to the Stanley Cup Finals in the 2020 playoffs, but has only played 41 games since signing the deal as Jake Oettinger took over the role. fold to Dallas.
Janmark, 29, signed a one-year, $1.25 million contract with the Edmonton Oilers in the offseason after six seasons with the Dallas Stars, Chicago Blackhawks and Vegas Golden Knights. He had nine goals, 16 assists and 25 points in 67 games for Vegas last season, and he’ll likely serve as a center depth for Edmonton if he clears.
So far this fall, three players have been called off waivers:
- Jonas Johansson (from COL to ARI)
- Magnus Hellberg (from SEA to OTT)
- Radim Zohorna (from PIT to CGY)
