The Predators have claimed Derek Grant off of waivers from Buffalo.
Grant has picked up three assists and 19 penalty minutes across 35 games with the Sabres this season. The Sabers will planning to send him to Rochester (AHL), but the Predators have added some depth to their fourth line and sent Frederik Gauthier to Milwaukee (AHL).
The Flames have sent Derek Grant back to Stockton (AHL).
Grant had no points and a minus-3 rating in one games during his time with the Flames. He may have failed to record a point, but he was impressive in the face-off circle, winning 56.8% of the face-offs he took, tops on the team. His demotion suggests that Jonas Hiller is ready to be activated from IR.
Sent to Binghamton were defencemen Tim Conboy, Eric Gryba and Craig Schira; and forwards Louie Caporusso, Pat Cannone, Corey Cowick, David Dziurzynski, Derek Grant, Wacey Hamilton, Francis Lessard, Corey Locke, Jim O’Brien, Mark Parrish and Andre Petersson.
