Canes forward Anthony Stewart has cleared waivers and will remain with the team, general manager Jim Rutherford said today.
The Canes on Monday placed Stewart on waivers. NHL teams had until noon today to claim him.
Stewart was signed to a free-agent contract in July by Carolina after the Winnipeg Jets did not make him a qualifying offer. The two-year deal pays him $800,000 this season and $1 million next season.
In 50 games for the Canes, mostly as a fourth-liner, Stewart has six goals and seven assist. Stewart's plus-4 rating is the best on the team.
