What are 'waivers' in hockey?

Waivers are when a team wants to send a player down to the minors or farm team and they have to "waive" the rights to that player before they can send him down. If another team claims that player he is now their property. If the player clears waivers (no one claims him), he remains the property of the original team and can be sent to the minors. The player may be relaesed and can be a free agent.

What does cleared waivers in hockey mean?

If an NHL player is on a one way contract and the team is attempting to send him to the minors, he must first clear waivers. Waivers is when the other 29 teams get a chance to pick the player up off of waivers and the player then becomes a member of that team. The team lowest in the standings gets first bid, and then the next team in the standings gets the second bid, and so on. If the player clears waivers, it means none of the teams picked him up.

What does it mean when a MLB player is out of options?

That means that a player, who is on a team's 40 man roster, may not be moved to the minors without first clearing waivers. MLB teams are limited on how many times they may move a player on their 40 man roster to the minors. Each time a team does this and the player spends at least 20 consecutive days in the minors, the team uses one of the player's 'options'. Only one option may be used per season so a team may move a player from the minors to the majors and back many times during a season with only one option being used. A team has three options with a player. Once those three options have been used, the player is 'out of options' and must be placed on waivers and pass through without being claimed by another team to be moved to the minors.
