Sislo inked a one-year, two-way deal with the Coyotes on Saturday. Sislo split time last year between a pair of minor-league teams -- Toronto and San Antonio -- in which he logged 72 contests and registered 14 goals and 23 helpers. The Superior, Wisconsin native was undrafted coming out of college and then spent six seasons within the Devils organization -- making 42 NHL appearances. With the Coyotes front office in flux, it's possible the winger will get a shot to make the 23-man roster coming out of training camp, but AHL Tucson seems a more likely destination.
Sislo was acquired by AHL Toronto on loan from AHL San Antonio on Wednesday, Dhiren Mahiban of The Candian Press reports. Sislo was waived by the Avalanche in October, and he's been with AHL San Antonio since. They've now decided to move him in exchange for Colin Smith, but the winger doesn't figure to make an impression at the top level this season or gain fantasy relevance anytime soon. Sislo's best NHL campaign came last season with the Devils, when he notched four points in 18 games.
Sislo was placed on waivers Monday in order to reassign him to the minors, Terry Frei of the Denver Posts reports. Sislo came up just shy of averaging a point per game last season in the minors, 53 points in 57 contests, and will return to the minors if he is unclaimed off the waiver wire. The Wisconsin native spent his entire career with the Devils organization before signing with the Avalanche over the summer. The winger has not shown enough yet to be considered for a spot on fantasy rosters except perhaps in the deepest of dynasty leagues.
Sislo was returned to AHL Albany on Friday, Rich Chere of the Star-Ledger reports. It was believed that Sislo, who cleared waivers Thursday, would remain with the parent club ahead of Saturday's regular-season finale against the Maple Leafs, but evidently that won't be the case. The Baby Devils have games through April 16, thus allowing Sislo to continue getting work.
Sislo has cleared waivers but will remain with New Jersey in case he is needed Thursday or Saturday, Rich Chere of The Star-Ledger reports. According to coach John Hynes, Sislo's placement on waivers was a technical move that will allow him to be reassigned in the future, but the winger will stay with the Devils. In his last 10 contests, the 28-year-old netted three goals, but was otherwise absent from fantasy stat sheets. Although he is still in the NHL for now, it is unclear whether or not he will suit up for the team's last two matchups.
