Newly acquired goaltender Peter Budaj has cleared waivers and been re-assigned to the Winnipeg Jets AHL affiliate in St. John’s, the NHL team announced Tuesday morning.

Budaj joins Connor Hellebuyck as the goaltending tandem in St. John’s and the nine-year NHL veteran will also provide some goaltending insurance this season for the Jets, who will use Ondrej Pavelec and Michael Hutchinson as their 1-2 goaltending tandem to start the regular season on Thursday.

The Winnipeg Jets have placed former Montreal Canadiens goaltender Peter Budaj, left, on waivers. He has been re-assigned to the St. John's IceCaps.
