We posted earlier in the week about a roster move coming on the horizon and that Ellerby could be waived if the Kings couldn't find a suitable trade. It looks like that was the case.

No word yet on the severity of the injury Jeff Carter sustained or how much time he'll miss. Having Carter out of the roster will be a big blow for a Kings team that has struggled to score goals this season. Carter's 5 goals on the year tie him with Justin Williams for the team lead.

Linden Vey has been very strong for Manchester having registered 11 points in 10 games. We recently profiled him on our Top 25 Under 25 series.

Tyler Toffoli leads all Kings prospects in NHL equivalencies so far this season. He also saw a lot of time with the Kings last year and played very well.

Keaton Ellerby had yet to see any playing time this seasons as the Kings 8th defenseman. He saw a lot of time last season and had his efforts praised by Darryl Sutter. It's unlikely that Ellerby goes through waivers unclaimed.

We'll keep you updated with more as news comes in.
