Galiardi was released from Blues' training camp Saturday, Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Galiardi had joined St. Louis on a professional tryout agreement (PTO) but apparently did not impress enough to warrant an Opening Night roster spot. The 28-year-old left winger is coming off a season with the Malmo Redhawks in the Swedish Professional League in which he totaled three goals and 12 assists in 29 games.
Galiardi will attend the Blues' training camp on a professional tryout agreement, James Mirtle of The Globe and Mail reports.
Galiardi appeared in 29 games with the Malmo Redhawks of the Swedish Hockey League last season, notching 15 points (three goals, 12 assists) over that span. The 2007 second-round pick will hope to lock down a bottom-six role with St. Louis in September's training camp.

Galiardi was recalled from AHL St. John's on Friday.Galiardi was assigned to St. John's for only a matter of hours. Fourth-liner Matt Halischuk evidently acquired some sort of injury during Thursday's game against the Flyers and was placed on IR, opening up a roster spot.

Galiardi cleared waivers and was assigned to AHL St. John's on Friday, Sportsnet's Mark Spector reports.As anticipated, no team was willing to put a claim in for a player who put up just one point in 26 games. Galiardi will head to the minors and remain on hand as organizational depth for the Jets.

With just one point in 26 games this season, Galiardi should clear waivers Friday without too much fanfare.

Galiardi will likely play Saturday against Toronto, Paul Wiecek of the Winnipeg Free Press reports.Galiardi has struggled to get into Winnipeg's lineup this season, but skated with Adam Lowry and Matt Halischuk on the Jets' third line in Friday's practice. The team has gotten very little in terms of production from its bottom two lines, and head coach Paul Maurice hopes that shaking things up by plugging Galiardi into the lineup may light a fire under Winnipeg's third and fourth lines.
Galiardi will rejoin the Winnipeg lineup Tuesday versus the Stars, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports.Galiardi had been a healthy scratch over the team's last 11 games, while also clearing waivers during that span.

The Jets placed Galiardi on waivers Tuesday, TSN's Bob McKenzie reports.Galiardi appeared in 17 games for the Jets but did not record a point. He could garner some interest on the waiver wire with 300 NHL games under his belt, but will be assigned to AHL St. John's if he is not claimed.
Galiardi (eye) returned to practice Friday, Paul Wiecek of the Winnipeg Free Press reports.Galiardi indicated that the vision in his eye is still a bit compromised following surgery and may require a few weeks before the blurriness subsides, but it shouldn't prevent him from suiting up for games.

Galiardi (eye) will miss at least the next week, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports.Galiardi had laser eye surgery Friday after taking a stick to the eye during practice, and will need at least the next seven days to recover.
