It's a busy time of year in the National Hockey League with the trade deadline just over one day away. This means that today, March 7th, is an important day on the waiver wire.

Today marks the final day that players can be placed on waivers and be playoff eligible with the team they're claimed by.

According to Chris Johnston, a total of seven players have been placed on the waiver wire for Thursday, March 8th for the purpose of being assigned to the American Hockey League.

"Placed on NHL waivers today: Brendan Lemieux (CAR), Antti Raanta (CAR), Jordan Oesterle (CGY), Boris Katchouk (CHI), Evan Cormier (FLA), William Lagesson (TOR) and Tobias Bjornfot (VGK)."
