The Kings placed Schaller on waivers Sunday, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports. Schaller was recently acquired from the Canucks on Monday in a deal that saw Tyler Toffoli head to Vancouver. Schaller suited up in two games with his new club, going pointless across 8:01 of average ice time. He'll likely head to the AHL ranks should he go unclaimed off waivers.
Schaller will draw into the lineup for Thursday's game against Florida, Jack Harris of the Los Angeles Times reports. The 29-year-old will make his debut for the Kings after he was involved in Monday's trade that saw Tyler Toffoli head to the Canucks. Schaller will draw into the lineup on the fourth line, and he's only collected six points in 51 games this campaign.
Schaller will join the Kings in Winnipeg but likely won't suit up against the Jets on Tuesday, Jon Rosen of Fox Sports West reports. Schaller was traded from the Canucks to the Kings on Monday and will head to Winnipeg to meet the team ahead of Tuesday's game. Assuming there are no setbacks, he should crack the lineup for Thursday's home contest against the Panthers.
Schaller was traded to the Kings along with Tyler Madden, a 2020 second-round pick and a conditional pick in 2022 from the Canucks in exchange for Tyler Toffoli on Monday, Bob McKenzie of TSN reports. The 29-year-old was lumped into the blockbuster deal that will take one of the top trade targets (Tyler Toffoli) off the board. Schaller will give the Kings depth for the remainder of the season, as he's collected six points in 51 games this campaign.
Schaller will be a healthy scratch during Monday's meeting with Nashville, Brendan Batchelor of Sportsnet 650 reports. Schaller will take a seat in favor of Zack MacEwen for Monday's contest. Schaller has just six points though 50 games. He's been a regular on the fourth line, but the Canucks will look to shake up their lines to try and snap their four-game losing streak. Schaller likely won't sit out many games, but he'll bring little fantasy value when he returns.
