The Jets lost Jansen Harkins to waivers a few days ago and are clearly still rolling the dice as they have placed another player on waivers to be claimed for free.

Jets Place Viel On Waivers

Waivers have just been announced by insider Chris Johnston and the Winnipeg Jets have placed forward Jeffery Viel on waivers.

Placed on NHL waivers today: Robert Hagg (ANA), Colton White (ANA), Jayson Megna (BOS), Brett Murray (BUF), Jujhar Khaira (MIN), Vinni Lettieri (MIN), Dakota Mermis (MIN), Nic Petan (MIN), Cal Foote (NJ), Mark Jankowski (NSH), Leon Gawanke (SJ) and Jeffrey Truchon-Viel (WPG).

Viel has played in 49 NHL games, all with the Sharks over the past three seasons. He is an enforcer having 139 career penalty minutes in those games.

The Jets will now risk losing him for nothing but if he goes unclaimed, he could be a valuable asset in the AHL and one of the first call ups if there are injuries.
