Sean Avery, Stu Bickel and Brendan Bell all cleared waivers today after the New York Rangers put them out there for any other NHL franchise to take them. Avery was assigned to the Connecticut Whale, while Bickel and Bell will remain on the active roster for the time being. 

To make room, on the active roster to keep Bickel and Bell while also recalling Tim Erixon the team officially placed Marc Staal on injured reserve.
