Yesterday we got the latest round of roster cuts, and a shocker among them was Nicolas Aube-Kubel. NAK had performed well so far this preseason, and many expected well enough to earn himself a roster spot. That didn’t happen, but he has cleared waivers according to Charlie O’Connor of The Athletic.

We were also informed yesterday that there would be a good bit of roster activity in the opening portion of the season — so while Aube-Kubel finds himself in the AHL right now — I wouldn’t be too surprised to see him with the Flyers before November.
The Flyers take on the New York Rangers tomorrow night for the final preseason game in North America before the trip to Switzerland to face Lausanne HC.
