Tom Preissing Waived

The Colorado Avalanche have placed defenseman Tom Preissing on waivers. This is not at all a surprise move; it's actually one we've been speculating would happen for some time now. Preissing has a $2.75 million salary and is signed through the end of next season. It is highly unlikely that he will be claimed and will instead be headed to the AHL (he cleared waivers in the spring when the Kings sent him to their farm team). In making this move, the Avalanche clear some cap space and Preissing gets a chance to play every day.

In other roster news, Kyle Cumiskey has been placed on the IR retroactive to November 23rd (meaning he'll miss at least tonight's game and Monday's game against Tampa Bay) while Adam Foote and Matt Hendricks have been activated and could play tonight.
