For the first time in four days, a player is on waivers in the NHL.
Melchiori has been held pointless in four NHL games this season, and has six points in 31 games with the Manitoba Moose of the AHL. He was called up to the NHL when Patrik Laine was injured back in January.
A third round pick of the Atlanta Thrashers back in 2010, the 6’5 defenseman has no points in 16 NHL games with the Jets and 38 points in 266 AHL games. Melchiori is in the first year of a two-year, two-way extension signed back in July. He has already cleared waivers once this year, back during training camp.
