Someone out there thinks that Brandon Yip still has it in him. According to The Tenneseean (and confirmed by NHL.com), Yip was claimed off of waivers today. The Preds have also activated forward Jerred Smithson who was on injured reserve. The Predators play their next game tonight at 7:00 pm ET against division rival Columbus Blue Jackets. No word yet on whether or not Yip will suit up.
As disappointing as he has been, it's sad to see the Yipper go. We wish him luck in his new gig; however, he can go back to his 0-point self on March 8 and April 7. Just sayin.
Stick tap to 9601 and Justin Digby of Monsters Mashup for the heads up on this one.
