Sturm update

A bit of update/clarification on Marco Sturm’s situation… He is on waivers but is expected to practice today and play tomorrow if he clears waivers in the morning. From the Kings’ perspective, putting Sturm on waivers gives them roster flexibility in advance of Monday’s trade deadline, since they currently are at the maximum of 23 players, with only Kyle Clifford and Alec Martinez exempt from waivers. Four other teams put players on waivers today, so it’s far from assured that a trade is coming, but a move such as this gives roster flexibility to teams. More from practice to come shortly…
