We are fast approaching the 2023 National Hockey League trade deadline, and with all the rumours swirling around upcoming trades, teams are looking at freeing up some cap space to try to swing some moves.

Unfortunately, this meant some players hit to waiver wire today, which included an NHL veteran of over 500 games.

Chris Tierney was part of the trade with the San Jose Sharks and Ottawa Senators that involved the superstar Erik Karlsson.

Placed on NHL waivers today: Joey Anderson (TOR), Justin Kirkland (ANA) and Chris Tierney (FLA).
