Lightning defenseman Lukas Krajicek on waivers


Defenseman Lukas Krajicek has been placed on waivers by the Tampa Bay Lightning.  Krajicek, who is making just less than $1.5 million this season, is exposed to all 29 NHL teams and anyone can claim him.

It's unknown right now if the Lightning will send Krajicek to the AHL if he passes through waivers.  Recall last year that the Bolts tried to "light a fire" under forward Jussi Jokinen by exposing him to waivers.  Krajicek has one point this season for the Lightning in 21 games and is an even plus / minus. 

Krajicek is a member of an over-stocked Tampa Bay blueline, where the team has carried nine defensemen.  The Lightning are still carrying nine, with defenseman Matt Smaby only having played in one NHL game this season with thanks to Krajicek, David Hale and Kurtis Foster  in front of him in the eyes of head coach Rick Tocchet.  The Lightning also have defenseman Paul Ranger, but Ranger has not been with the team for several weeks after leaving to deal with personal issues.
