The “Preds” could send the 27-year-old to the Milwaukee Admirals in the American League to get back in shape, according to Sportsnet reporter Elliotte Friedman.
McCarron has not played since December 8th. The former Montreal Canadiens then registered with the NHL’s Assistance Program and Players’ Union, a resource that helps players dealing with addiction and mental health issues, among other things.
The right winger is in his third season in Nashville. He has scored one goal and provided one assist in 15 games this season.
Buffalo Sabers forward Vinny Hinostroza was also on the waiver Wednesday. The 28-year-old American has just eight assists in 19 games in 2022-23.
