Today, we’ll find out if goaltender Troy Grosenick and defender Mark Alt clear waivers. The duo were placed on waivers by the LA Kings yesterday morning.

Since training camp, the team has had three players out due to the new COVID-19 protocols. However, Sean Walker, Kurtis MacDermid and Cal Petersen may all be cleared to play this morning, making them eligible for a rematch against the Minnesota Wild tonight. The moves certainly seem anticipatory of players being activated.
