According to Dan Murphy from Sportsnet, Shane O’Brien and Darcy Hordichuk were placed on waivers this morning.
His love for establishments such as The Roxy aside, SOB is actually a decent bottom-six defenseman, and by most accounts, is well-liked by his teammates. Truthfully, I wouldn’t be surprised if another team – Anaheim, Edmonton and Columbus come to mind – took a chance at him.
Hordi’s a character guy himself, but unfortunately, he’s been noticeably slower and was outplayed this preseason by guys like Tanner Glass and Guillame Desbiens. Such is life on the fourth line, I guess.
