Zeiler will not be joining Kings

This story just never ends… John Zeiler will not be joining the Kings for Game 2 tomorrow night against San Jose, as a replacement for suspended center Jarret Stoll. Here’s a statement/clarification from the team…

“Our intent was to recall (Zeiler), but given the timing of today’s ruling, we could not have him clear re-entry waivers in time for tomorrow’s game.”

Players in recall-waivers situations spent 24 hours on waivers before they are cleared. Oscar Moller is now expected to play in Game 2, although it’s not certain exactly where. There will not be an attempt to call up any other player.
