Derek GrantA of the Pittsburgh Penguins andA Matt TaorminaA of the Calgary Flames have been placed on waivers todayA according to Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet. New York Islanders forwardA Jan KovarA has also been placed on the unconditional varietyA in order to terminate his contract.

While Grant and Taormina are both interesting options, the focus today will be on Kovar whose NHL career will end before it even starts. The Islanders signed Kovar out of the KHL for $2MM this past offseason, but cut him near the end of training camp and tried to send him to the Bridgeport Sound Tigers of the AHL. Kovar didna€™t report to the minor league club and will likely head back overseas as soon as his contract is terminated. The 28-year old forward will give up his entire contract, and the Islanders will not have to carry any penalty against the salary cap.
