The Flames have claimed forward Blake Comeau off waivers from the Islanders. Comeau, 25, had zero points in 16 games with the Islanders this season. He scored 24 goals last season. He will make $2.5 million this season and be a restricted free agent July 1. "Blake is a smart, committed, two-way hockey player who kills penalties, is responsible defensively and can score some goals as well," Flames general manager Jay Feaster said Friday. "We have liked this player for a long time, and our scouts and staff are convinced a change is going to be good for him. We are excited to add him to our club without having to give up an asset."

Sean Avery Returns To Rangers
Controversial winger Sean Avery cleared re-entry waivers at noon Tuesday and was recalled to the Rangers for his third stint with the team. Whether he makes his season debut on Thursday against the Ducks, however, remains to be seen. "If I look at the tape and I think the guys have done their job, you stay with your team," Rangers coach John Tortorella said after New York's 5-2 victory over the harks on Monday night. "I just don't know what's the lineup is going to be for next game."
Avery May Be Returning To Rangers
The Rangers have officially placed Sean Avery on re-entry waivers, signaling his likely return to the team. Assuming Avery clears re-entry waivers at noon Tuesday, he could be recalled in time for Thursday's game against the Ducks. Although another team could claim Avery and block his return to the Rangers, it is unlikely that will happen.
