Tomas Kaberle has successfully cleared unconditional waivers.

With that done, the Montreal Canadiens are free to use a compliance buyout on Kaberle. He would have come with a $4.25 million cap hit in 2013-14.

Tomas Kaberle has reportedly been told by the Montreal Canadiens that he will be bought out.

Tomas Kaberle will not be sent down to the AHL if he's not claimed on waivers, according to RDS' Renaud Lavoie.

We'll know Sunday, but the chances of him being claimed are miniscule as he's still owed a pro-rated $4.25 million this year and the same amount next season. He's a prime buyout candidate once the season ends.

Tomas Kaberle has been waived by the Montreal Canadiens.

Kaberle's cap hit is $4,250,000 through the 2013-14 campaign, so there's no way that he gets claimed. Maybe the Canadiens can trade him under the right circumstances - for example, if they take back a bad contract - but he's more likely to be bought out after the season's over. Kaberle has no fantasy value.

Tomas Kaberle will spend Thursday's game in the press box.

Kaberle has three points in just 10 games this season. This isn't the first time he's been a healthy scratch and probably won't be the last time. Consequently, it wouldn't be surprising if Montreal buys out the final campaign of his three-year/$12.75 million contract over the summer.

Tomas Kaberle was a healthy scratch in the Canadiens' 6-0 loss to the Leafs Saturday night.

The defenseman, who carries a $4.25 million cap hit, will probably be one of Montreal's compliance buyouts next offseason. In the meantime, he shouldn't be on anyone's fantasy radar, especially with the recent P.K. Subban signing.
