Andersson Clears Waivers

Detroit Red Wings forward Joakim Andersson cleared waivers on Saturday.

Andersson, 26, had been placed on waivers on Friday to give the Red Wings flexibility to call up a defenseman with Niklas Kronwall recovering from knee surgery. Teams had 24 hours to make a claim on him. Unlike with Landon Ferraro – who was claimed by the Boston Bruins earlier this season – none did.

Andersson will remain with the team for now but could be sent to the Grand Rapids Griffins if the defensive call-up ends up being necessary.
