Betts Returned to Flyers.

Going back to Philadelphia.

Various sources report center Blair Betts, who was claimed off waivers last week by the Montreal Canadiens, has been returned to the Philadelphia Flyers as he failed to pass a team physical, contravening league  by-law 11.8 (c), which states:

“The Member Club acquiring a player by waiver claim shall take an assignment of the player’s contract. Nevertheless, if the Commissioner determines that a player acquired by waiver claim is not physically fit at the time the claim is made, the Member Club making the claim may refuse to take an assignment of such player’s contract and the request for waivers shall be cancelled.”


  1. Will he now go to the AHL or will he have to pass through waivers again?

  2. I bet the flyers are happy about this. I don’t think the Flyers were thinking anyone would pick him off waivers.
