Tampa Bay Lightning claims LW Radek Smolenak off waivers from the Blackhawks
The Tampa Bay Lightning on Saturday claimed right wing Radek Smolenak off waivers from the Blackhawks. Smolenak was lost on waivers to Chicago as the Lightning cut down its roster during training camp. When he was put on waivers by the Blackhawks, Tampa Bay had first crack at claiming him. Smolenak, who played one regular-season game with Chicago and had zero points and five penalty minutes, will be assigned to AHL Norfolk.
