Segal has 9g, 7a in 38 games with the Whale this season.
The 29-year old Segal has played 102 NHL games with Tampa, Dallas and Los Angeles.

Andus also notes that none of the Whale players waived yesterday, including Chad Kolarik, were claimed today.
…pleasantly surprised that Kolarik wasn't claimed.
