Red Wings’ Frans Nielsen on waivers, Ducks’ Adam Henrique clears

The Detroit Red Wings placed veteran centre Frans Nielsen on waivers Sunday, while Anaheim Ducks centre Adam Henrique has cleared waivers.

Nielsen, 36, is in the fifth year of a six-year, $31.5-million contract that carries a $5.25 million cap hit. He has appeared in 18 of the Red Wings’ 20 games this season and has three assists.

If Nielsen clears, he will likely be assigned to the Red Wings’ taxi squad. The team deployed the same tactic with veteran defenceman Danny Dekeyser last week.
