Cloutier on waivers
The Los Angeles Kings placed goaltender Dan Cloutier on waivers Friday with the intention of sending him to Manchester of the AHL.
CKNW in Vancouver is reporting that Cloutier will not accompany the team to London, England for their September 29th game against the Ducks.
Cloutier is due to make $3.1-million both this season and next, and instantly becomes the most expensive player in the AHL.
I wonder if this means Jonathan Bernier will stay with the big club, or if Jean-Sebastien Aubin has somehow managed to find another backup gig after imploding in Toronto. Swedish import Erik Ersberg is the other option, although he was sent to Manchester already this week.
