CSNPhilly.com’s Tim Panaccio is reporting that Nikolay Zherdev cleared waivers, and no team put a waiver-wire claim on the enigmatic Russian.
Even weirder: Zherdev took part in the team’s optional skate this morning at the Flyers SkateZone in Vorhees, NJ.

…Does Z go to Adirondack? That seems to be what most people are expecting. That would be a mistake as well, because Zherdev is regaining his enigmatic status, and a trip to Glens Falls would seem to only escalate the process. I personally don’t feel like there’s spot for Zherdev on this team, at least not at this point. Too awkward, and just simply not enough room for the Ukrainian.
