Carolina places Patrick O’Sullivan on waivers, Anaheim waives Ryan Carter


James O’Brien

Here is some small waiver wire news from Bob MacKenzie of TSN.

In five tumultuous seasons in the NHL, O’Sullivan has already bounced to three different NHL teams. He started his career with the Los Angeles Kings after being traded there by the team who drafted him, the Minnesota Wild. After spending a season and change with the Edmonton Oilers, the Hurricanes took a chance on him this year.

It’s hard to blame the Canes for getting rid of the versatile forward, who only scored one goal in the 10 games he played this season.

Carter hasn’t been much more than a marginal forward for the Ducks, never scoring more than nine points or playing in more than 48 games in any season. He only has one goal and two assists for three points in 18 games this season, so it’s hard to argue with how replaceable he is.

Ryan never played a game with the Flyers, so there’s not much to say about him. To say that the forward position is crowded in Philadelphia is an understatement.
