Thiessen was cut by the Blue Jackets on Tuesday.

EDGE Analysis

Thiessen has bounced around leagues, as he has played in the NHL, AHL, ECHL, Finnish League and collegiately. After being let go by Columbus, the 31-year-old may need to return to Europe if he is going to extend his professional career.

Thiessen is expected to begin the regular season as the starting goalie for AHL Cleveland and the No. 3 on the Blue Jackets' depth chart, Aaron Portzline of The Columbus Dispatch reports.

EDGE Analysis

With Anton Forsberg getting dealt to Chicago as part of the Artemi Panarin/Brandon Saad trade, the Jackets have an opening for a steady veteran hand like Thiessen to provide some depth if Sergei Bobrovsky or Joonas Korpisalo get hurt. The 31-year-old Thiessen's only NHL experience came during a brief five-game stint with the Penguins in 2011-12, but over the last two seasons he's looked sharp in 34 games for the AHL Monsters, posting a 2.09 GAA and .922 save percentage with six shutouts.

Thiessen has been called up to AHL Cleveland, The Columbus Dispatch reports.

EDGE Analysis

He'll serve as Cleveland's backup after Curtis McElhinney was lost on waivers to the Maple Leafs. It would take a lot of bad luck for the Blue Jackets for Thiessen to find himself in the NHL, but the career minor leaguer did have a good run last season for the Calder Cup-winning Monsters, posting a 1.95 GAA and .929 save percentage in 22 games, including three shutouts.

Brad Thiessen has agreed to terms on a minor-league deal with Pittsburgh's AHL farm club in Wilkes-Barre/Scranton.

In 41 AHL games last season, Thiessen posted a 23-15-2 record with a 2.82 goals-against average and a .887 save percentage. He also made his NHL debut on Feb. 26 with a 22-save win over Columbus. Thiessen won three contests in five appearances, but a poor game against Ottawa, where he allowed eight goals on 28 shots, sabotaged his statistics.
