Columbus Blue Jackets lose Liam Foudy on waivers

Published October 21, 2023 at 2:15 PM

The Columbus Blue Jackets made a surprising move on Friday, placing a former first-round pick on waivers with the hope he would clear and be assigned to the AHL. Well, that was not the case.

According to TSN's Chris Johnston, the Nashville Predators have claimed Liam Foudy off waivers from the Columbus Blue Jackets.

"Nashville claims Liam Foudy off waivers from Columbus." Johnston said.

Foudy, 23, played his first full season in the National Hockey League in 2022-23, appearing in 62 games where he put up 14 points (seven goals, seven assists), eight penalty minutes and was a minus-26.

The 2018 18th overall pick's time with the Blue Jackets didn't go as many within the organization had hoped, but now Foudy will get a fresh start with the Nashville Predators in hopes of keeping his dream of being a full-time NHL alive.
