New York, NY (SportsNetwork.com) - Fallout from the Rangers' dismal 1-4-0 start has begun.
On Monday, multiple sources, including the Daily News, reported that both forward Arron Asham and backup goaltender Martin Biron have been placed on waivers.
Teams have 24 hours to claim either player, and if not, both can be assigned to the minors or choose retirement.
If Asham clears and is assigned to Hartford of the American Hockey League, the Rangers will be on the hook for a $75,000 cap hit, while Biron's cap hit will be $375,000 with the Wolf Pack, according to the paper.
Asham has racked up 14 penalty minutes and is a minus-3 over three games without a point this season.
Biron has gone 0-1-0 with a 7.61 goals-against average and .763 save percentage in two appearances, including an infamous relief stint for starter Henrik Lundqvist in a 9-2 loss at San Jose.
