Cody Bass has been placed on waivers by the Columbus Blue Jackets.

He is projected to remain with the team if he clears on Thursday afternoon. "We're right up against our numbers," coach Scott Arniel said. "If something was to happen, we have the ability to make a shift." Bass has not dressed in the team's past two games. He has one helper and 27 PIMs in 10 games this year.
Wed, Nov 16, 2011 02:12:00 PM

Cody Bass picked up 12 minutes in penalties on Thursday, including two fights.

Bass battled Patrick Kaleta and Cody McCormick in the first period to try and energize the Blue Jackets. He played 8:54 minutes on the third line and even got in two seconds on the power play. He should stay on the third line in the short term and he's worth picking up in pools that use penalty minutes as a category, but don't expect him to get this much power play time very often.
