Report: Flyers Sign Defenseman Lukas Krajicek

+

Tricky situation here. Philabright is citing TSN in reporting that the Flyers have claimed defenseman Lukas Krajicek off of waivers. But I don't think that's exactly what happened. He cleared unconditional waivers and was essentially released by the Tampa Bay organization as of yesterday, according to the St. Pete Times. If I'm understanding the situation and the CBA correctly, Tampa Bay has been absolved of his cap hit (i.e., this isn't like re-entry waivers), and is more or less a free agent. If true, we can only hope and assume that the Flyers would have signed him for at or around the league minimum, which, when pro-rated, would provide a favorable cap-hit. Krajicek, 26, had one assist and 21 PIM in 23 games with the Lightning this year before being sent down to the AHL where he registered six assists and 8 PIM in 15 games with Norfolk. He spent 2006-07 and 2007-08 as a Canuck and was in the Panther organization before that. Update: NHL.com now lists him as a Flyer.
