Roster move? Penner return? Not so fast

The Kings are scheduled to be back at practice at 10:30 a.m. in El Segundo. For the past couple days, they’ve publicly talked up the return of injured winger Dustin Penner for Thursday’s game. This morning, I’m told that Penner is “not ready’’ to play yet — no further explanation yet provided — so it’s likely that the Kings won’t need to make any roster moves today. Today was a notable day, roster-wise, because if the Kings intended to put a player on waivers in order to create a roster spot for Penner, they needed to do so by 9 a.m. today. They didn’t. There’s also the possibility of a player going to the AHL, but now that doesn’t seem likely either for at least the next couple days. More information should be available after practice today…
