Scherbak inked a one-year deal with KHL club Avangard Omsk for the 2019-20 campaign, Andrew Zadarnowski of TSN 690 reports. Scherbak saw action in a mere eight games with the Kings this season, in which he tallied one goal, 12 shots and a minus-4 rating. The winger was playing with AHL Ontario after being waived in January and failed to earn a call-up the rest of the way. The 22-year-old will give the KHL a shot for the 2019-20 season and could still earn his way back to the NHL if he performs well.
The Kings waived Scherbak on Sunday, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports. The Kings scooped Scherbak off waivers from the Canadiens in December, and the 23-year-old finds himself in the same position barely a month later. In eight games with the Kings, Scherbak scored a goal and went minus-4, and he served as a healthy scratch five times. If he clears waivers, Scherbak will be assigned to AHL Ontario.
Scherbak's (personal) work visa has been finalized, which means he can suit up versus Vegas on Saturday, Jon Rosen of Fox Sports West reports. Scherbak figures to slot into a bottom-six role for the club, having been claimed off waivers Dec. 2. In 26 appearances for the Habs this year, the Russian winger tallied four goals, two helpers and 39 shots while averaging 13:23 of ice time.
Scherbak (personal) won't play Thursday against the Devils, Jon Rosen of Fox Sports West reports. Scherbak is no longer dealing with an injury, but he's still waiting for his work visa to be approved. The 23-year-old forward's next opportunity to make his Kings debut will come Saturday against Vegas.
Scherback (undisclosed) indicated Thursday that he's nearing a return to the ice and could play in the evening's contest against the Devils, Curtis Zupke of the Los Angeles Times reports. The Kings activated Scherback off of injured reserve Tuesday, indicating that he's nearing a return to the lineup. He should come back to a bottom-six role when healthy, with Thursday's contest still on the table.
