Simon Despres needs to clear waivers before being sent to the minors.
That could help his chances of staying with Pittsburgh this season. Shoulder injuries to Olli Maatta and Derrick Pouliot increase Despres' shot at a roster spot as well. He signed a two-year, $1.8 million contract in July. Despres averaged 16:44 of ice time per game with the big club last season in 34 contests and he posted five assists. Aug 7 - 10:12 AM
