Vancouver, BC – Vancouver Canucks General Manager, Jim Benning announced that forward
Anton Rodin has been placed on unconditional waivers today for the purpose of being released from his contract.
“Anton asked to be released from his contract,” said Benning. “We value the skill and depth he adds to our team but ultimately it was important to respect Anton’s request to move on.” Rodin played seven games with the Utica Comets (1-1-2) this season and was limited to three games as a Canuck last season due to injury. A Stockholm, Sweden native, Rodin was originally drafted by the Canucks 53rd overall, in the 2009 NHL Entry Draft.
