Capitals lose two players on waivers


The Washington Capitals lost two forwards on waivers on Monday.

23-year-old winger Brett Leason, who picked up six points in 36 games with the Caps last season, is now a member of the Anaheim Ducks. He is a former second-round selection for Team Washington in 2019.

As for Swedish forward Axel Jonsson-Fjallby, he was claimed by the Winnipeg Jets. The 24-year-old forward also made his National League debut in 2021-22, amassing four points in 23 games.

The Florida Panthers also made a move on Monday, putting the grappling hook on defender Josh Mahura. The 24-year-old Alberta guard spent four years with the Ducks, playing 79 games on the Bettman circuit.

The Chicago Blackhawks also replenished their blue line by claiming the former first choice round of Montreal Canadiens Jarred Tinordi. The giant size defenseman was about to start a second season in the New York Rangers organization. The 30-year-old American has played 109 NHL games and has also played for the Arizona Coyotes, Nashville Predators and Boston Bruins.

In the end, the Coyotes delighted the services of 25-year-old goaltender Connor Ingram, who played his first three games in the best hockey league in the world with the Predators last season.

So defenseman Mike Reilly and forward Emil Bemstrom, two of the most interesting names on waivers on Sunday, will report to the Bruins and Columbus Blue Jackets farm respectively.
