Waiver wire: Hurricanes waive Rattie, Sabres waive Fedun


The NHL’s waiver wire had two names on it¬†Saturday afternoon when the Carolina Hurricanes waived forward Ty Rattie and the Buffalo Sabres waived defenseman Taylor Fedun.

Rattie was claimed by the Hurricanes on waivers from St. Louis back in January and only appeared in five games with the team. He did record two assists. Those are his only two points this season at the NHL level in nine games between the Blues and Hurricanes. He has not appeared in a game for the Hurricanes since Jan. 23 when he played 12 minutes against the Washington Capitals.

A second-round pick by the Blues in 2011, Rattie has four goals and 10 assists in 36 career NHL games.

Fedun, meanwhile, lost out on a numbers game in Buffalo with the return of Cody Franson from injury.

Fedun, playing for his fourth different organization in the past four years, he appeared in 25 games this season for the Sabres and has recorded seven assists while posting some excellent possession numbers. He hasn’t received a ton of playing time during his career but when he has been given an opportunity he has represented himself quite well, already recording 14 points (two goals, 12 assists) in 37 NHL games as a member of the Oilers, Sharks, Canucks and Sabres since the start of the 2013-14 season.

If he does not get claimed he will be assigned to Rochester of the American Hockey League.
