The NHL's waiver list Monday produced three more players who will likely be bought out of their contracts.

Anton Volchenkov (New Jersey), Shane O'Brien (Calgary) and Tim Gleason (Toronto) were placed on unconditional waivers for purpose of a buyout if/when they clear waivers on Tuesday.

Volchenkov, 32, had two years remaining on his deal paying him $4.25 million each season. He signed a six-year, $25.5 million contract with New Jersey in July 2010.

O'Brien, 30, had one year left on his deal, which was set to pay him $2.2 million for next season.

Gleason, 31, had two years left on his contract, counting $4 million each season against the cap.

All three players will become unrestricted free agents Tuesday.

Meanwhile, Ed Jovanovski cleared waivers Monday and was bought out by the Florida Panthers, making him an unrestricted free agent as well.
