The NHL season starts tomorrow and it’s going to be exciting for a lot of people.
You’ve got a lot going on and it is a great time to get ready.
The first-place Toronto Maple Leafs and the second-place Montreal Canadiens are tied with five points each in the Atlantic Division.
The winner of the final game of the season will advance to the Stanley Cup Final, and the loser will be eliminated from the playoffs.
The Toronto Maple Leaf organization is taking the extra precaution of placing a number of players on waivers and putting them on waivers until next season, according to The Associated Press.
Toronto general manager Lou Lamoriello says that all 30 teams are required to put 30 players on their waiver lists by Friday.
Those 30 players have to be either in the NHL or their team’s organization.
Here’s a look at the players on Toronto’s 30-player roster, according the AP:Jhonas Enroth (LAK) – The 22-year-old center was a second-round pick of the Maple Leafs in 2014 and has scored 12 goals and 19 points in 41 games this season.
The winger has three goals and five assists in his past 11 games.
Joe Thornton (WSH) – After missing all of last season with a concussion, Thornton has scored five goals and 12 points in 20 games this year.
He is second on the team in scoring with 20 goals and 41 points.
Tyler Bozak (CHI) – Bozaks goal against Montreal was the first of his NHL career and his six points in eight games since Oct. 13 are the most by a Blackhawks forward since Oct., 29, 2013 against Montreal.
Bryce Salvador (WPG) – Salvador scored two goals and two assists in two games before suffering a season-ending concussion against Ottawa on Dec. 3.
The NHL has been making changes to the league rules regarding waivers in recent years.
The league has required that players be placed on waivers if they are injured for a period of time and are unable to return to play.
