Wild Waive Defenseman Tom Gilbert

The Minnesota Wild have waived defenseman Tom Gilbert. The team announced the move Wednesday. The 30-year-old Gilbert had one season left on his contract for $3 million. If he goes unclaimed by another team, the Wild will use one of their two available compliance buyouts to keep Gilbert’s money from counting against their salary cap. He would then become an unrestricted free agent Friday, eligible to sign with any team except the Wild.
