NHL waivers: Anthony Stewart, Jim Vandermeer placed on wire

Steve Mitchell-US PRESSWIRE

Anthony Stewart and Jim Vandermeer were both placed on waivers on Monday afternoon.

The Los Angeles Kings placed forward Anthony Stewart on waivers on Monday afternoon, according to Bob McKenzie of TSN.

Stewart was recently acquired by Los Angeles in the deal that sent forward Kevin Westgarth to the Carolina Hurricanes. In addition to Stewart, the Kings received two draft picks in the deal. Stewart was scratched in the Kings' regular season opener on Saturday afternoon against the Chicago Blackhawks.

Originally chosen with the No. 25 overall selection by the Florida Panthers in the 2003 NHL Draft, Stewart has appeared in 262 career games, registering 27 goals and 44 assists for 71 points. He has now played on four different teams over the course of the last four years.

In addition to Stewart, defenseman Jim Vandermeer was placed on waivers by the Vancouver Canucks.

Vandermeer signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Canucks last week and was going to be used in a depth role. The team had also considered using him as the club's 13th forward due to his toughness and ability to fight.

Vandermeer was scratched in both of Vancouver's games this season.
