Montreal claims Halpern (Update: Stu Bickel on waivers)March 23, 2013, by
Original Post: Per Larry Brooks, the Montreal Canadiens have claimed Jeff Halpern off waivers from the Rangers. Halpern was waived yesterday to make room for Arron Asham’s return to the lineup. Losing Halpern will cost the Rangers in the face off circle, but Halpern’s ice time had seen a sharp decline over the past week or so. Halpern’s Ranger career ends with 30 games on Broadway, an assist, 8 PIMs, and a -5 rating.
