Die Südostschweiz reported earlier on Monday that HC Davos was about to close a deal with another forward. The identity of the newest member of HC Davos has now been revealed. However, Rödin will only sign with Davos if he clears waivers. Head coach Arno del Curto confirmed this report to Blick's Dino Kessler.
The 26-year-old Swede was placed on unconditional waivers by the Vancouver Canucks on Monday at his own request. Rödin, who played for Byrnäs IF for several years before he joined the Canucks, will not return to Sweden due to tax-related reasons, as Brynäs' team manager Stefan Bengtzén told Expressen. Rödin has played seven games for the Utica Comets this season, scoring one goal and one assist.
