Stoll was let go from his professional tryout agreement with the Blue Jackets on Wednesday, James Mirtle of the Globe and Mail reports.
Stoll saw a significant drop in production last season -- just nine points in 80 contests -- which no doubt factored into the center being unable to secure anything more than a PTO over the summer. The young talent down the middle in Columbus had the veteran in an uphill battle a roster spot. Stoll hasn't played in the minors since 2004-05 with the Edmonton Roadrunners, but may have to pursue that route if he wants to continue his professional career. Needless to say, fantasy owners will want to look elsewhere.
Stoll returned to the Blue Jackets training camp following a death in his family, Aaron Portzline of The Columbus Dispatch reports.
Stoll is reportedly good to go for Columbus' preseason matchup against St. Louis. The 34-year-old defender is currently signed to a professional tryout agreement and his performance in the team's upcoming preseason games could determine whether he secures an Opening Night roster spot.
Stoll will attend Blue Jackets training camp on a tryout.
After playing with the Rangers and Wild, Stoll will have a chance for his third team in two years when he tries out for Columbus. Having only put up nine points -- including four goals on 49 shots -- last year, the 34-year-old wouldn't bring top-six talent to the Jackets, but he could provide a valuable veteran locker room presence.
Stoll was a healthy scratch in Sunday's loss to St. Louis.
Head coach John Torchetti said he wanted to make changes to the Wild's penalty kill where Stoll had been on the ice for 10 power-play goals in the past 15 games, according to the Minneapolis Star Tribune. Stoll may just sit out one game while Torchetti experiments with new lineups, but it creates uncertainty about his role going forward.
Stoll scored his first goal as a member of the Wild in Wednesday's 3-1 loss to the Ducks.
It took Stoll 17 games to score his first goal with Minnesota, and it could easily take him at least as many to get his next. The fourth-line center is mostly off the fantasy radar with just five points in 46 games between the Rangers and Wild this season.
Stoll will draw into the lineup for the Wild on Thursday against his former team, the New York Rangers.
Stoll will line up on the Wild's fourth line, centering Ryan Carter and Chris Porter. Stoll should come out motivated, needing to prove himself to his new team against the team that waived him earlier this week. Nonetheless, his potential for your roster is very limited.
Stoll, who was claimed off waivers Tuesday, will make his Wild debut Thursday night against the Rangers, Chad Graff of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.
According to the report, Stoll will center a line that includes Chris Porter and Ryan Carter, albeit in a bottom-six role. The newcomer Stoll is an asset in the faceoff circle, having won 57.9 percent of his draws with the Rangers this season. He also had averaged 1:56 on the penalty kill with the Blueshirts, so he could be used in those situations, even though Minnesota only allowed 16 power-play goals in 29 games before his arrival.
Stoll was claimed off waivers by the Wild on Tuesday.
Although Stoll hasn't been productive offensively this season, notching just three points (one goal, two assists) in 29 games with the Rangers, he's still a highly capable faceoff specialist and a strong penalty killer. He'll likely slot in as a bottom-six center for the Wild, seeing additional ice time on the penalty kill. The veteran forward likely still won't contribute much offensively with his new team, but will fill in nicely as a depth forward.
Stoll was placed on waivers Monday, Ryan Rishaug of TSN reports.
The experiment in New York appears to have ended for Stoll, who recorded just three points in 29 contests and watched Saturday's game from the press box as a healthy scratch. The former King and Oiler has looked much older than 33 years old this season, constantly struggling to get around the ice. It would be fairly surprising if another team were to claim the Stanley Cup-winning center.
Stoll hasn't logged a point in 12 straight games.
No big surprise here as the veteran forward logs fourth line minutes, and is seemingly always on the bubble of watching from the press box . The first year Ranger is plus-6 with a goal and two assists through 23 games.
Stoll registered his first goal of the season in Tuesday's 5-2 win over Washington.
Of course it's the first time he's found the net with the Rangers as well. Surprisingly, the usually fourth line forward also logged 16-plus minutes, including two minutes with the special teams units. While we're not sure this trend will continue, three points in 12 games is enough to suggest Stoll should remain in your free agent pool.
Stoll was observed alternating with Emerson Etem at Wednesday's practice reports Andrew Gross of The Record.
With head coach Alain Vigneault trying to find the most productive combination for his fourth line, the veteran forward is smack dab in the middle of a bubbling game of musical chairs. Etem and Tanner Glass were originally tabbed as the healthy scratches out of camp, while Jesper Fast has sat out the last two games, including Tuesday's loss to Winnipeg. With just one assist in four games played, it appears Stoll could be the next to watch from the press box as music continues. The team is off as they travel to Montreal for Thursday's contest.
Stoll was released from the Clark County (Nevada) Detention Center over the weekend on $5,000 bond, the Associated Press reports.Stoll was arrested Friday after being suspected of possessing cocaine and ecstasy at a Las Vetgas resort. He's expected to face a court date on the matter over the next few weeks, which could result in a cool market for the center when he becomes an unrestricted free agent July 1. He posted a career-worst 17 points in 73 games with the Kings this season.

Stoll (upper body) will return to the lineup Thursday against the Oilers, Jon Rosen of LA Kings Insider reports.Stoll has practiced just once with the Kings since suffering the injury in mid-March, but coach Darryl Sutter was satisfied enough with the center's performance during Wednesday's session to sign off on his return. After a nine-game absence, Stoll will slot back in on the Kings' third line.
Stoll (upper body) skated on the third line during Wednesday's practice, Elliott Teaford of the Los Angeles Daily News reports.Stoll suggested that he could probably use a few more practices to get back up to full speed, but with the Kings requiring all hands on deck to chase down a playoff spot, he could be cleared to play as soon as Thursday's game against the Oilers. More information on Stoll's condition should be revealed after the Kings hold their morning skate Thursday.
