The NHL paused its season last week as the novel coronavirus spread across North America. According to the NHL, players “are expected to be in their home market cities” and “all practices, workouts and team meetings have been put on pause.”
But apparently, teams can still make roster moves during this unprecedented time, which is what the Anaheim Ducks did on Sunday. Ducks general manager Bob Murray put forward Kiefer Sherwood on waivers.
Sherwood played in Anaheim’s final game before the pause – a 4-2 loss to the St. Louis Blues. He has one assist in 10 games this season.

Y’all, this seems callous and not very considerate to me, but let’s see what Hockey Twitter thinks.
