Lasse Kukkonen Placed on Waivers

Thursday, November 13, 2008 ·

Lasse Kukkonen was placed on waivers this morning. The Flyers' defenseman is expected to be sent to the Phantoms if he clears waivers. The move is expected to clear over $800,000 off the Flyers' Salary Cap.

However, Kukkonen is expected to play tonight against Pittsburgh, and will be the Flyers' 4th line Center. He is eligible to play for the Flyers until he clears waivers.

The Flyers are still expected to hear back from free agent forward Brendan Shanahan, and the Kukkonen move is expected to hear some cap room in the event Shanahan decides to sign with the club.


A small introduction...

We Hate to Lose began in October 2007. The initial purpose of the website was to provide news updates and commentary on all four major sports teams in Philadelphia. Because of time-constraints, in April of 2009, I decided to post only on my first-love, the Philadelphia Phillies.

My name is Justin Evans and I hope you enjoy the site.
