Brett Carson placed on waivers

65

According to Pierre LeBrun of ESPN and CBC, the Canes have placed defenseman Brett Carson on waivers. Carson was recalled from Charlotte on February 15 in the first hint that a trade was forthcoming (and it came to pass three days later when Ian White was dealt to San Jose). Since Carson is not waiver-exempt and he was not recalled under emergency conditions, he must clear waivers to be sent back to the Checkers. If you own a Joni Pitkanen jersey, this is good news for you, as it essentially confirms that the Canes do not plan to trade Pitkanen before Monday's 3:00 trade deadline. Carson will learn his fate on Monday at noon. In his most recent callup, Carson played in four games, tallying no points but recording a +3 rating.
