Waivers Calculator

  • When a player is reassigned from the NHL to the AHL, they must pass through waivers (unless exempt). Waivers allow any of the other teams to claim the rights of the player
  • This tool determines when a player will no-longer be waiver exempt
  • Age is defined by the following:
    • If a player turns 18 between January 1 and September 15 on the year of the entry draft, they are considered 18
    • If a player turns 19 before December 31 of the year on the calendar year of the entry draft, they are considered 19
    • If a player turns 20 before December 31 of the year on the calendar year of the entry draft, they are considered 20, and so on
  • If a player plays their first Professional Game at the age of 20 or older, that age is considered their first year for calculating their waivers exemption
