I didn't see a thread for this anywhere so please feel free to delete if it's a dupe but Mitch Fadden was placed on unconditional waivers with the intent of terminating his contract. From a local beat writers Twitter: Fadden was having a breakout year in the ECHL but had a lot of questions going into the draft about his attitude and work ethic. This all went down at 1 PM. It is worth noting that Fadden has been out for a bit with a blood clot in his leg and it could be some kind of reaction to the meds but I would assume that Yzerman and co. wouldn't dump the kid unless they knew it was alcohol or drug related. Story from the local paper.
