Edmonton Oilers Tyler Ennis clears waivers, team waives Joakim Nygard

Tyler Ennis has cleared waivers while the Edmonton Oilers placed Joakim Nygard on waivers.

Nygard, 28, has only played in six games for the Oilers this year, scoring no points. Since the end of January, he’s only appeared in two games — one on March 3 against Toronto and one on March 18 against Winnipeg.

Ennis has subsequently been placed on the taxi squad.
