The National Hockey League's waiver wire was active again on Monday, with Ottawa's Jonathan Cheechoo, Petteri Nokelainen and Jim Vandermeer of the Phoenix Coyotes, Florida Panthers defenceman Ville Koistinen and Ales Kotalik of the Calgary Flames all made available.

The players are expected to be bought out of their contracts if they go unclaimed and would become unrestricted free agents.

Cheechoo is in the final year of a multi-year contract that will pay him $3.5 million next season. He had five goals and 14 points in 61 games last season.

Kotalik, 31, scored 11 and 27 points in 71 games with the Flames and New York Rangers last season. He will make $3 million in each of the next two seasons.
