  • Lightning's Daniel Walcott: Waived for AHL assignment

    Walcott was waived Saturday, reports Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports.

    Walcott, who is 27, finally made his NHL debut last season. He's a strong leader who could end up wearing a letter with Syracuse this season. Walcott's game won't stand out from a fantasy perspective if he can earn a call up, but he will be a solid citizen on the ice.

  • Lightning's Daniel Walcott: Healthy and on waivers

    The Lightning lifted Walcott (shoulder) from non-roster injured reserve Wednesday and placed him on waivers for assignment to AHL Syracuse, Joe Smith of The Athletic reports.

    Walcott has been dealing with the effects of his shoulder injury for over a year now, but he's ready for contact again so he'll continue his development in the minors. The 25-year-old hasn't surpassed 16 points in three AHL seasons, so he'll likely stay in bus league for the foreseeable future.

  • Lightning's Daniel Walcott: Still hampered by shoulder issue

    Walcott will start training camp sporting a non-contact sweater due to the shoulder issue he suffered during camp in 2018, Erik Erlendsson of LightningInsider.com reports.

    Walcott played in just five games with AHL Syracuse last season after moving down to the minors. It seems the 25-year-old is not yet back to 100 percent, given his limitations in training camp. Whenever he does get the all-clear, the Quebec native will be reassigned to the minors in the hopes of jump starting his career.

  • Lightning's Daniel Walcott: Inks two-way deal

    Walcott signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Lightning on Wednesday.

    The 25-year-old hasn't played in the NHL in his career, and with the depth Tampa Bay has up front that seems unlikely to change, at least to begin the 2019-20 season. Walcott accumulated no points last season in just five AHL games due to a shoulder injury he suffered during the 2018 preseason.

  • Lightning's Daniel Walcott: Exits with arm/shoulder issue

    Walcott took a hard hit during Wednesday's preseason game against the Hurricanes and exited immediately to the locker room, Bryan Burns of the Lightning's official site reports.

    No word surfaced regarding whether or not the blueliner was able to return, but, given the potential severity inferred by Burns, it wouldn't be surprising if Walcott's night ended there. More information on his injury and a potential timetable could surface in the coming days.

  • Lightning's Daniel Walcott: Secures one-year pact

    Walcott inked a one-year, two-way contract with Tampa Bay on Thursday.

    Walcott -- who was originally drafted by the Rangers in 2014 -- has spent the past three seasons playing for AHL Syracuse without earning a call-up. The defenseman notched five goals, 11 assists and 70 PIM this past year with the Crunch. Even if the Lightning don't re-sign Andrej Sustr or Slater Koekkoek, it's hard to find a spot in the lineup for Walcott given the emergence of Mikhail Sergachev and Jake Dotchin.
