Blue Jackets claim Moreau off waivers
The 34-year-old Moreau, who has a year left on a contract that pays him $1.75 million, had nine goals and nine assists last season. The Oilers could have bought out his contract had Moreau cleared waivers Wednesday, but now the Blue Jackets will assume his contract.
Moreau had a career-best 20 goals during the 2003-04 season. He has 145 goals and 132 assists in 14 NHL seasons.
