Locke makes it, equipment doesn’t

Bulldogs callup Corey Locke was supposed to in the lineup tonight in place of flu-bitten Saku Koivu, who will watch the game from his New York hotel room.

But while Locke made it to Madison Square Garden at the last minute, his equipment didn’t. The Canadiens will play with 19 men.

    Try this link to the NHL CBA concerning waivers

    I believe you only have to clear waivers after 3 years of pro contract or 180 NHL games.

    Apparently Locke was to wear #45

    I don’t remember a playing wearing that number for us since Gilbert Dionne.

    Now that Locke is up, does he have to clear waivers to go back down?

    That has to be the worst feeling, all the adrenaline to play in the NHL and your equipment does not make it. He will get his chance soon.
    Through the good the bad and the ugly I will never lose hope in my HABS!!!!
