As first reported by Rich Hammond, Andy Andreoff has been assigned to AHL-Manchester on a conditioning stint.
Andreoff, who hasn’t played since the October 31 game in Detroit, consented to the loan (per the CBA) and can remain on the Monarchs’ roster for 14 consecutive days, per Article 13.8 of the collective bargaining agreement. Considering the Kings leave on Monday for a nine-day trip through Buffalo, Eastern Canada and St. Louis, it wouldn’t be a surprise for Andreoff to rejoin the team once it is in the northeast.
Andreoff does not have to clear waivers to be sent to Manchester on this loan. In eight games this season, he has no points, an even rating and 12 penalty minutes.
Unless a Player consents, he shall not be Loaned on a Conditioning Loan to a minor league club. Such Conditioning Loan shall not extend for more than fourteen (14) consecutive days. The Commissioner may take whatever steps he deems necessary to investigate the circumstances under which a Player is Loaned on a Conditioning Loan. If the Commissioner has reason to believe or determines that the Club has used the Conditioning Loan to evade Waivers, or otherwise Circumvent any provision of this Agreement, he may take such disciplinary action against the Club, as he deems appropriate. The Player shall continue, during the period of such Conditioning Loan, to receive the same Paragraph 1 NHL Salary, and be entitled to the same benefits, that he would have received had he continued to play with the Club.
