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.
