Shane O’Brien and Darcy Hordichuk On Waivers
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.
