Ryan Stanton has been claimed off of waivers by the Vancouver Canucks.

Stanton had 25 points and 126 penalty minutes in 73 AHL games last season. He was never able to earn regular playing time with the Chicago Blackhawks, but he might be a decent source of penalty minutes if he can earn a top-six role in Vancouver. That being said, we can't recommend picking him up in standard leagues at this time.

The Chicago Blackhawks waived defenseman Ryan Stanton on Sunday.

It's obviously difficult to make the cut for the defending Stanley Cup champions, but Stanton could serve as an occasional injury replacement if he clears waivers. Naturally, he's not really worth watching in fantasy at this point, though.

All six defensemen who contributed to the Chicago Blackhawks' championship season are back and so Ryan Stanton knows it'll be tough for him to crack the roster heading into the regular season.

Still, he might be the first blueliner in line should someone suffer an injury or go into a slump. Stanton had a strong season with the Rockford IceHogs in the AHL in 2012-13, tallying 25 points and finishing plus-16 over 73 games. He also had 126 penalty minutes. Chicago coach Joel Quenneville understands the battle Stanton’s in to earn a place. "He’s in a competitive spot," Quenneville said. "We’ve liked his development in his career. He’s another defenseman we think could play if given the chance. It looked like he belonged in practices when he came up (and played in one game) last year. We’ll see how he plays. When you put him into an NHL game, you know you’ll be comfortable with him on the ice."
