Blair Betts Returned To Philadelphia

This is an unconfirmed rumour at this point in time, but it appears as though Canadiens' waiver pickup Blair Betts has failed his physical and could be returned to the Philadelphia Flyers. "The possibility of this is currently being studied by the team and they are awaiting confirmation from the NHL," according to Marc-Antoine Godin of La Presse and TVA Sports commentator Jérémie Rainville. Amanda Stein of TSN 990 Sports in Montreal has stated that Betts is actually on a plane and Philly bound. The CBA ruling on such scenarios states:

 

13.20 (a) The Club acquiring a Player by Waiver claim shall take an Assignment of the Player's SPC. Nevertheless, if the Commissioner determines that a Player acquired by Waiver claim is not physically fit at the time the claim is made, the Club making the claim may refuse to take an Assignment of such Player's SPC and the request for Waivers shall be canceled.

 

UPDATE: Broad Street Hockey is now reported that the NHL have confirmed Betts' return to Philly.
