This didn't just happen, but we're just now learning about it.
According to a report from TSN's Pierre LeBrun on Insider Trading, goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky is willing and has been willing since the offseason, to waive his no-trade clause from the Columbus Blue Jackets.
It's been a dramatic season so far for the Blue Jackets and their prized goaltender, and it was well known in the offseason that Bobrovsky was not willing to sign an extension with the club at that time - but a trade happening seemed unlikely since Bobrovsky held the cards of his no-trade clause in his contract.
But apparently, in the right situation, Bob would be willing to waive it.
Sergei Bobrovsky becomes an unrestricted free agent at the end of the 2018-2019 regular season, and it is assumed by most at this point that the veteran is not incredibly excited about returning to Columbus.
