The Blue Jackets have made seven roster cuts today.
C Derek MacKenzie and D Jonathan Sigalet have been placed on waivers as of noon today. If they aren't claimed by noon Tuesday, both players will be sent to minor-league Syracuse.
D Grant Clitsome, D Nick Holden, LW Tom Sestito and RW Maksim Mayorov have been sent to Syracuse, while D John Moore was sent back to his junior club, Kitchener of the Ontario Hockey League.
By sending Clitsome to the minors, the Blue Jackets have two options for a No. 7 defenseman -- sign Martin Skoula to a contract, or swing a trade. The former seems more likely than the latter, although the Blue Jackets have made a trade offer, and they're waiting to hear back from the other club.
GM Scott Howson said he expects to contact Skoula's agent, Jiri Crha, to talk about "their plans" later today.
