Devils' Keith Kinkaid: Designated for waivers
Kinkaid (undisclosed) was placed on waivers for the purpose of reassignment Tuesday, Chris Johnston of The Athletic reports.
Per NHL rules, Kinkaid has to be medically cleared before he can be waived or reassigned. While the veteran backstop has played sparingly at the NHL level over the last few seasons -- he saw action in just two games last year -- there are a handful of teams that could be in the market, including the Edmonton Oilers, who aren't exactly getting solid netminding out of either of their current goalies. If Kinkaid goes unclaimed, he will link up with AHL Utica for the time being.... See More ... See Less

Keith Kinkaid: Links up with AHL Chicago
Kinkaid signed a one-year contract with AHL Chicago on Tuesday.
Chicago will operate independently this season, so Kinkaid will have no direct path back to an NHL deal. The 34-year-old split time between the Avalanche and the Bruins last season, playing in one game for each of those NHL clubs while spending the bulk of the campaign in the minors. Kinkaid will still be free to ink an NHL deal if he shows well with the Wolves.... See More ... See Less
