The collective bargaining agreement's rules for determining a player's waiver status can be complicated and difficult to understand. Using CapGeek.com's exclusive data — notably signing age and the first season of players' first contract — our waiver calculator simplifies the process. Simply select a player and fill out the appropriate fields to calculate his waiver status. Please note, we do not include veteran players who are obviously waiver-eligible. However, if you believe a player who may be eligible for waivers is missing from our list, please email email@example.com or let us know via Twitter
Danny DeKeyser is exempt from waivers.
The following chart shows the number of years or games he has to play to lose his exemption, as well as how many years and games he has played to date (not including 2013-14). It highlights in red the years or games (whichever he reaches first) remaining on his exemption as of the final day of 2013-14 training camp.
This result is based on the data you entered: Player appeared in one or more professional game after signing his first NHL contract in 2012-13; and player has appeared in 13 career NHL regular season and playoff games games. If this information was entered incorrectly, the calculator will generate an incorrect result.
NOTES: Danny DeKeyser's signing age for the purposes of waivers is recorded in our database as 22 while the first season of his first NHL contract is recorded as 2012-13. We have also determined that he was eligible for a reduction in the number of NHL games played required for waiver eligibility (as noted in Exhibit 16, Transition Rules, of the CBA) by virtue of his contract and playing status during the 2012-13 lockout-shortened season.
