As first reported by Bob McKenzie of TSN, the Kings have put forward Trent Hunter on waivers. I’ve also confirmed that with a Kings source. Teams have until 9 a.m. Pacific time tomorrow to put in claims on Hunter. If nobody claims him, he will be eligible to be taken off the roster and assigned to the AHL.
The move is designed to make room for Jarret Stoll, who is eligible to return tomorrow for the injured-reserve list, and it would seemingly be good news for rookies Dwight King and Jordan Nolan, one of whom would have been subject to return to Manchester upon Stoll’s return.
