On Oct. 8, the Colorado Avalanche put Martin Kaut, along with Shane Bowers, on waivers. Both players went unclaimed. Just a few minutes ago, Martin Kaut was put back on waivers by the Avalanche. Will anyone claim him this time? We’ll know tomorrow around this time.
Kaut has one goal and two assists in 18 games with the Avalanche (two of the points in one game, in Finland). He’s been given chances to play in the top six and on the power play at times. But the scoring numbers continue to be low.
We’ll see what happens. If he goes unclaimed, he could be sent to the Eagles. Or, he might just stay here. Maybe this is all a cap maneuver again. But the Avalanche lost a player the other day (Jayson Megna) to the waiver wire. If any other team in the league wants the former first-round pick, he’s now available.
