Dwight King waiver issue clarified

Niesy left this comment in the Dwight King post of a couple of weeks ago: OK, I did some searching and apparently other NHL clubs have been sending non-waiver-exempt players down to the AHL for a while. It seems to be a safe move so long as the player was listed on the AHL club’s…

How is Dwight King going to avoid waivers?

Mayor’s Manor reports that Dwight King has “signed a minor league contract” and is going to play in Manchester. I assume more details are forthcoming. All of the Kings’ waiver-exempt players (Andrei Loktionov, Jordan Nolan, Slava Voynov) were loaned to Manchester before the September 15 lock-out date, per a special agreement between the NHL and…

Still no Voynov; Monarchs Camp Day 1

New Hampshire Union Leader: Monarchs Roster Takes Shape

[...] Nolan and Loktionov arrived in town this past week to report to Monarchs training camp. Voynov, however, did not and his status remains a mystery.

It was rumored that Loktionov might opt to go play back home in the KHL in Russia and that could be where Voynov ends up. But for now, the 22-year-old Loktionov, who played in 39 NHL regular season games and two playoff games, is here and he wants to play hockey.

“Here, I just I need to play my best game,” Loktionov said. “I played 30 games. I think it’s good for me to take it step-by-step, one game, then 20 games, then 40 games. Hopefully I will play this year a full season.”

Training Camp Opens on Saturday

The Monarchs Training Camp roster consists of 16 forwards: Andy Andreoff, Marc-Andre Cliche, Richard Clune, Robbie Czarnik, Justin Johnson, Brandon Kozun, Stefan Legein, Andrei Loktionov [AWOL in KHL - Q], David Meckler, Jordan Nolan, Brian O’Neill, Tanner Pearson, Nikolay Prokhorkin [status unknown -Q], Tyler Toffoli, Linden Vey and Jordan Weal.  There are also seven defensemen on the roster: Andrew Bodnarchuk, Andrew Campbell, Nick Deslauriers, Thomas Hickey, David Kolomatis, Jake Muzzin and Slava Voynov.  Netminders J.F. Berube and Martin Jones round out the Monarchs Training Camp roster.

Kings Waive Nobody Today

Per Rich Hammond (yesterday), the Kings had yet to decide if they were going to put any of their prospects on waivers in order to assign them to Manchester before the Lock-Out deadline. The NHL and NHLPA had made a special agreement that teams could put players on waivers this week (normally, the waiver period…

Shorter RudyKelly, and looking into AHL streaming

Because there is a lock-out coming and because I don’t have anything better to do, I took RudyKelly’s even-handed and well-reasoned commentary ont he “on-going” CBA negotiations, and ran it through Microsoft Word’s auto-summarize tool. I told Word to reduce it to a ten sentence summary. This is the result. RudyKelly: F the Owners Hey, owners: fuck…

Preds match: thoughts

Note to Elliotte Friedman and other chuckleheads who think Weber’s deal with Preds can’t be modified: It can. Only the “principal terms” (how much and when and for how long) can’t be altered. Why on earth Nashville would give Weber a no-move clause now is another question. Frankly, I would be more inclined to send…
