Andrey Pedan cleared waivers and will start the season in the AHL.

"Talking to other general managers, I wasn’t surprised he cleared," GM Jim Benning said. "Lots of teams have their own players they want to give a chance to. I’m happy we’re able to keep Andrey. I still believe in him and think he can be a player that helps us." Pedan had 21 points and 87 penalty minutes in 45 AHL games last season.

The Vancouver Canucks have placed Andrey Pedan on waivers.

The plan is to send Pedan to AHL Utica if he clears. He had 21 points and 87 penalty minutes in 45 AHL contests in 2015-16. While he fell short of making the team as a depth defenseman, it wouldn't be surprising to see him summoned later in the campaign.

Andrey Pedan is going into training camp with a lot of confidence.

Pedan feels he's gotten stronger and will do a better job in his own zone with the puck. "I’m really excited for this year and I know anything can happen if you play solid," he said. "I came to North America because I like this type of hockey. I don’t like the big rinks. It’s slow and you can take a nap between shifts. I like when it’s intense and the boys are going at it. Some (Russian) guys get some injuries and want to take it easy on their bodies and go back there (KHL) and make some money. I’m ready to make the NHL." Pedan had no points and 18 penalty minutes in 13 games with Vancouver in 2015-16. At the AHL level he recorded 21 points and 87 PIM in 45 contests. Vancouver wants to carry eight defensemen and Pedan is waiver-eligible, so it wouldn't be shocking to see him make the Canucks' roster even if he's a scratch in the season opener.

Andrey Pedan and Yannick Weber will be scratched against Edmonton on Saturady.

Unfortunately there isn't a lick of fantasy value from either defender. Which is disappointing on both fronts, as Weber showed promise last season and Pedan seems unable to figure out the game's highest level.
