According to sources, Colton Gillies has been reassigned to AHL Houston. He was just informed.
According to sources, the Wild has placed Craig Weller and Nathan Smith on waivers. Weller is obviously the notable one. On a one-way contract, if he clears and is reassigned to Houston, the Wild will have to pay his NHL salary of 600K in the minors. The Wild needs the salary-cap room, so this was very much expected.
Andy Hilbert is not going to Philadelphia. According to sources, he’s been offered a two-way deal and has been told if he signs, he will start out in Houston. That’s what Todd Richards meant by saying he’s got “a decision to make.”
