After being put on waivers yesterday, Kings forward Colin Fraser has cleared and now his next step may be to head to the minors.

Jon Rosen of L.A. Kings Insider reports Fraser will be headed to AHL Manchester later next week. Of course, later next week brings us closer to when the Olympics are over with and the NHL schedule is about to begin again.

In 33 games this season, Fraser has two assists and 30 penalty minutes. He’s been a favorite of Kings coach Darryl Sutter and a usual fourth line player. If nothing else, sending Fraser to the AHL will give L.A. a little more cap flexibility. Fraser’s cap hit is $825,000.

Update (5:11 p.m. ET): The Kings make it official and aren’t waiting til the end of next week — they’ve sent Fraser to Manchester.

    Nobody wants him yet he is an integral part of the Kings plans, right Kings fans?

      He is a very good role player but it doesn’t surprise me that other teams might not notice him. Glad we kept him.

      integral: something that is necessary to make a ‘glorious’ device or cause, whole and/or complete …

        Honestly, machosasquatcho? That’s what you have to add to the conversation?

        I’ve been a reader and commenter here for a few years, and this is the first time I’ve seen your name. And a shot at blomfeld is what you have to offer. Make yourself invisible again, please.

        lol @patthehockeyfan. next time I’ll be sure to add value to the conversation by abusing ellipses and posting random YouTube videos.

        Blomfeld is a moron who upvotes his own comments with his several alternate accounts and then holds conversations with them. He deserves everyone’s derision.

        If you don’t see that, you’re part of the problem and I honestly pity your life.

        Listen Muncho Mosquito …

        Despite being an ardent, sexy and ‘values-driven’ supporter of the Stanley Cup Champion Los Angeles Kings, there are two things which I Blomfeld have little time for in life. One is boredom and the other is vermin. And I’ll have you know that you sir are a ‘boring’ rat ! So go back to your hole ‘right now’ and make nice with wifey pooh, before I loose my patience here and call the exterminator !

        ps: Go Kings Go !!! … Today, Tomorrow and Forever !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    No one wanted a 29 year centre putting up points comparable to offensive standout Douglas Murray? What is this world coming to

    For an outfit that claims not to care if it wins the Calder or not (and really why should it care ? Player development is most important at the AHL level), the Kings have built quite the team in Manchester this season.
