Scuderi was a late scratch from Tuesday's matchup with the Flames, Lisa Dillman of the Los Angeles Times reports. Scuderi's absence is being listed as a coaches decision, although it remains unclear exactly what the cause is. The defenseman has 10 assists over 61 games this season and isn't worth much of a look in terms of his fantasy value. We should see his status updated prior to Thursday's game against the Ducks.
Scuderi notches pair of helpers in 5-2 win over the Stars on Tuesday. In his 41st game of the season, Scuderi finally managed a multi-point outing. The 37-year-old has certainly been having a bit of a rough year so far, as he's now with his third team of the season. With four points in nine games, he's already matched the number of points he put up in 25 games in Pittsburgh earlier this season.
Scuderi logged nearly 20 minutes of ice time and added an assist in his first game since rejoining the Kings on Saturday. Scuderi hasn't been a fantasy factor since leaving Pittsburgh years ago and he figures to see most of his minutes with the Kings in a stay-at-home role in addition to killing penalties so don't jump the gun here and expect this type of production going forward.
Scuderi was traded to the Kings in exchange for Christian Ehrhoff on Friday. Scuderi didn't play well during his brief stint with the Blackhawks, registering a minus-6 rating with zero points in 17 games with Chicago. The 37-year-old blueliner's cap hit is slightly smaller than Ehrhoff's, which is why the Kings were willing to move Ehrhoff in exchange for the aging defender. Scuderi will likely spend the rest of the 2015-16 campaign with AHL Ontario.
Scuderi cleared waivers and was assigned to AHL Rockford on Wednesday, Mark Lazerus of the Chicago Sun-Times reports. Scuderi has struggled considerably since coming over from Pittsburgh in mid-December. With no points and a minus-6 to go along with a hefty cap hit, Scuderi easily cleared waivers and will head down to AHL Rockford. He hasn't played in the AHL since the 2005-06 season when he was with the Penguins.
