Radek Dvorak cleared waivers Monday, which means he will join the Anaheim Ducks, the team he signed with the day before.
The 36-year-old right winger was not in the lineup for the Ducks Monday night, as they took on the San Jose Sharks.
FYI, new signee Radek Dvorak will not be in the lineup and is technically non-roster status while he goes through the immigration process.—

But he’s just happy to be back in the National Hockey League, playing on a team that looks to be, at this point in the condensed season, a Stanley Cup contender.
“I’m so glad it was Anaheim,” Dvorak told NHL.com.
“It’s nice to be back in the NHL. It was tough for me to leave after 17 years in the League, but that’s how it is. That’s life. But like I said, it’s nice to be back with a team like Anaheim — one of the best teams in the League. I’m very glad and I’m very happy.”
Dvorak has played 1,191 career NHL regular season games. He had four goals and 21 points in 73 games last season for the Dallas Stars.
