Tri-City Americans’ O’Reilly Waived to Make Room on Roster

It’s a difficult part of the WHL season, early to mid fall when overage, or 20-year-old players, have to fight for one of only 3 such roster spots on a team.

This season, Americans Defenseman Brendan O’Reilly found himself in that position. Monday, the Americans announced he had cleared waivers. When a player is waived, the team gives all the others in the league the opportunity add that player to their roster.

GM-Governor Bob Tory said O’Really had cleared waivers, meaning none of the other clubs at this time had chosen to do so. The player is then released by the club, becoming a free agent. The team thanked O’Reilly for his contributions to the Americans over the last four seasons.¬† The Americans are now down to their limit of 3, with Vladislav Lukin moving on to a tryout outside of the WHL.
