Dallas Stars forward Chris Mueller and the Phoenix Coyotes’ Jeff Halpern have both been placed on waivers, according to CBC’s Tim Wharnsby.

Halpern, 37, inked a one-year, two-way contract with Phoenix on Saturday, but he started the campaign in the Finnish league. Players that begin the season in Europe must clear waivers if they sign with an NHL club. There’s a history of such players being claimed, so Halpern might not end up playing for Phoenix.

He’s in the twilight of his career, but has recorded 141 goals and 361 points in 907 career games.

Chris Mueller agreed to a one-year, two-way contract with the Stars over the summer. He’s enjoyed some successful seasons in the minors, but at the age of 27 he hasn’t been able to firmly establish himself at the NHL level. Mueller has two goals and eight points in 38 NHL contests.

    IMO Halpern is very underrated. Pretty fair bottom six forward and a great face off man.
