Steve Montador Waived
Every team will have a chance to claim him, if he clears waivers his rights will be retained by the Blackhawks and he will likely report to the Rockford IceHogs of the American Hockey League. Montador is on the second year of a four year deal which counts for $2.75 million against the salary cap each year.
With a logjam of defenseman in the Blackhawks system, it must have been harder and harder for the Blackhawks organization to waste a roster slot on Montador if Joel Quenneville did not plan on getting him into the defensive rotation. Six teams in the Western Conference currently carry eight or more defenseman, only two of those teams are in a playoff spot, so I'm sure the Blackhawks are fine with carrying seven defenseman.
This is strictly a conditioning stint, but that can always change if the Blackhawks decide to use the added space to call up another player from Rockford such as Ben Smith or Jimmy Hayes and they play well.
Since re-entry waivers is no longer applicable under the new CBA, if Montador is not claimed he can be recalled at any time without risk.
