Wisniewski signed a 25-game professional tryout contract with AHL Chicago on Thursday, Darren Dreger of TSN reports.
Wisniewski gets another crack at an NHL roster, but he will have to impress in the AHL first before getting a call to the big club. The 32-year-old put up four points and 39 penalty minutes this season for the KHL's Vladivostok Admiral, so he'll likely be looking to make his mark as an enforcer if he can get a chance with St. Louis.
Wisniewski has signed a contract with the KHL's Vladivostok Admirals that includes an NHL out clause, Darren Dreger of TSN reports.
Wisniewski has yet to play a 70-game season in the NHL and, despite the out clause in his deal, that's not likely to change with this move to Russia. He's completely off the radar for fantasy purposes.
Wisniewski was with the Lightning on a professional tryout agreement and despite optimism about potentially making the final roster, it appears Wisniewski will have to look elsewhere for work. The 32-year-old defenseman missed a full year after undergoing ACL surgery, so he could still be shaking off some rust and may find another team willing to give him a shot.
Wiz played 19:49 Saturday against the Preds and picked up an assist. He'll be a bottom pair guy if he makes the final roster for the Bolts.
