Halak clears waivers, sent to AHL
TheFourthPeriod.com

The New York Islanders have sent goaltender Jaroslav Halak down to their AHL affiliate, the Bridgeport Sound Tigers, after the veteran cleared waivers Saturday.

Halak, 31, posted a 6-8-5 record in 21 games with the Islanders this season, along with a 3.23 goals-against-average and a .904 save percentage.

The Islanders tried trading Halak earlier in the season, but his $4.5 million salary cap has made a move nearly impossible.

The Islanders will now save $950,000 against the salary cap with Halak's assignment to the AHL.

It's unclear if the Isles will attempt to trade Halak again during the season or wait until the off-season.

Halak has one-year left on his contract after this season that pays him $5 million in actual salary.
