New York Rangers defenseman Wade Redden has cleared waivers and has been assigned to the AHL team in Hartford. Brochu's take: Redden's agent has been given permission to find a team in Europe for the maligned defenseman. The Ranger's are still on the hook for his salary.
The Washington Capitals have signed forward Matt Hendricks to a one-year, two-way contract.
Brochu's European rumor roundup:
Chicago Blackhawks goalie Cristobal Huet has cleared waivers and has been assigned to HC Fribourg-Gotteron SA of the Swiss National League A.
