Kings place F Fraser on waivers

The SportsXchange

The Los Angeles Kings placed forward Colin Fraser on waivers Saturday, according to CBC.

It was speculated that the move was made to save salary-cap money as the Kings are close to the NHL's threshold as the trade deadline approaches.

If a team claims Fraser, he would cost $825,000 toward the cap for the season and is scheduled to be an unrestricted free agent this summer.

The move also allows Fraser to play in the minors for the Kings during the Olympics break if no one claims him. He has two assists and 30 penalty minutes in 33 games this season.
