The Tampa Bay Lightning have reassigned Janne Niskala to the Finland national team.
Niskala wanted to return to Europe after his role on the Lightning had diminished to that of a seventh defenseman. He cleared waivers on Wednesday and will likely play for a Finnish or Swedish team when the European leagues start playing again. Tampa Bay can recall him before the trade deadline, but he would first have to clear re-entry waivers. Thu, Nov 6, 2008 08:10:00 AM
