Coyotes Claim Brule Off Waivers

Gilbert Brule is now a member of the Phoenix Coyotes hockey club after being claimed off the waiver wicket.

The 25 year-old Brule spent the first half of the season in Oklahoma City, scoring 18 points (8-10-18) in 27 games.  Because Brule was nabbed on re-entry waivers, the Coyotes will only be responsible for half of his remaining salary (the Oilers will pick up the other half), which is about 500K.  A nice snag for Phoenix.

The former first round pick of the Columbus Blue Jackets will get a fresh start with his third club.
