Los Angeles Kings Place Defenseman on Waivers

The Los Angeles Kings have placed Frederic Allard on waivers.

This isn't the most surprising of developments, as Allard was not expected to make the Kings' NHL roster for the start of the season. Th 24-year-old defenseman has just one game of NHL experience, and that was back with the Nashville Predators back in 2020-21.

Yet, with how often injuries occur on the backend, there could be a team willing to claim Allard off waivers from here. After joining the Ontario Reign near the conclusion of last season, he scored three goals and recorded 10 points in 15 contests. Perhaps the 6-foot-1 defenseman is on the rise, and a rebuilding club could give him a look from here. If not, he will be heading back to Ontario.
