LA Kings officially place Ethan Moreau on waivers

So much for waiting one more day to make a decision on which player had to leave in order to clear room on the Kings roster for Willie Mitchell‘s return – which is expected for tomorrow’s game vs. Dallas.

Ethan Moreau has officially been placed on waivers. All other NHL teams will now have 24 hours to claim him. If he’s not picked up by another team, his future is unclear at the moment.  He was a first round draft pick by the Chicago Blackhawks at the 1994 NHL Draft and he’s played in 928 NHL games.

This season, Moreau had played in all 28 games for the Kings, bouncing between the third and fourth lines – and from the left to right side. He had one goal and three assists, to go along with a plus-minus rating of minus-3 and 20 penalty minutes.  His 50 hits were fourth on the team behind Dustin Brown (84), Matt Greene (79) and Kyle Clifford (60).

You have to wonder if Trent Hunter scoring that goal last night helped save his job or if Moreau was going either way.

Back when Moreau was still captain of the Oilers, he sat down for an in-depth interview with MayorsManor.  Click here to give it a read if you’ve never seen it before.  We cover some interesting stories together.

The timing of him going on waivers is at least a little ironic with the Stars coming in town tomorrow night.  You may recall, some of the sharpest criticism coach Terry Murray has had this season, directed at a specific player, came after Moreau’s penalty during the Kings last game in Dallas two weeks ago.  The two events aren’t connected, just ironic.

More info to come, as it becomes available.
