REPORT: Former TOP-5 pick placed on WAIVERS - Is he DONE in the NHL?

Yesterday we saw over 30 players get placed on waivers, and of those players, today we saw 2 of them get claimed:

Ottawa claims goalie Magnus Hellberg off waivers from Seattle.

Calgary claims Radim Zohorna off waivers from Pittsburgh.






Today we saw a few more players get added to the waiver-wire, including a former top 5 draft pick:

Among those on NHL waivers today: Olli Juolvei (ANA), Alex Barre-Boulet (TB), Gemel Smith (TB), Kevin Stenlund (WPG).



Olli Juolevi was a fifth overall pick by the Vancouver Canucks back in 2016, but unfortunately has just never found his stride in the NHL. He has bounced around between a few teams over his career, playing on the Florida Panthers and Detroit Red Wings last season, but unfortunately neither team were interested in bringing him back.

He signed a one year show me deal with the Anaheim Ducks this season, but it does not appear to have turned out well during training camp as he in on his way to the AHL, pending he doesn't get claimed.
