Jonathon Blum has been placed on waivers by the Minnesota Wild.
Blum has excelled offensively in the minors, but he hasn't been able to properly establish himself at the top level. The former first round pick might still turn things around, but at the age of 25, he's running out of time to prove he can be more than an organizational depth defenseman. Sep 29 - 12:13 PM

Jonathon Blum has been placed on waivers by the Minnesota Wild.

Unlike the vast majority of the players waived on Tuesday, there's an outside chance that Blum will actually be claimed. He was once a highly regarded prospect, but his stock has fallen hard, as evidenced by the fact that Nashville didn't extend him a qualifying offer and he couldn't make Minnesota's roster. If he does clear waivers, he'll report to AHL Iowa.

Jonathon Blum has inked a one-year, two-way deal with the Minnesota Wild.

Blum fell out of favor with the Nashville Predators and it got to the point where they didn't even send him a qualifying offer. All the same, he still has plenty of offensive upside, which makes it worth keeping an eye on him during the Wild's training camp.

The Minnesota Wild are in the running for unrestricted free agent Jonathon Blum.

"We've talked to Minnesota and a number of teams," agent Gerry Johannson said. "They are definitely in the running." The Nashville Predators decided to part ways with Blum, but he is worth keeping an eye on because he still has untapped offensive upside.
Thu, Jul 11, 2013 03:32:00 PM

General manager David Poile said Tuesday the Nashville Predators have yet to extend qualifying offers to Jonathon Blum and Matt Halischuk.

Blum and Halischuk are slated to be restricted free agents, but Poile says he's currently exploring trade options involving both players. Poile didn't rule out eventually tendering them, but it's clear he's keeping his options open after a disappointing 2013 season by the Preds.
