Collberg clears waivers, so Isles successfully terminated his contract


The New York Islanders were able to terminate Sebastian Collberg’s contract as of Saturday.

This comes after placing him on unconditional waivers on Friday (he naturally cleared waivers).

As this previous PHT post notes, the Islanders thought he had the potential to become a top-six forward after acquiring him as part of the Thomas Vanek trade.

Honestly, even his AHL numbers provide little inspiration. That said, at 22, it’s possible he could get things together and eventually make a dent in the NHL.

He’d likely need to prove himself quite a bit more to do so.
