Leslie was placed on waivers by the Golden Knights on Friday, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.
Leslie agreed to a one-year, $675,000 deal with the Golden Knights in May. At 24 years old, his prospect status has expired, but the 2013 sixth-round (178th overall) draft pick -- he was selected by the Kings -- will presumably have a chance to continue developing with AHL Chicago in the likely event that he goes unclaimed off the wire.
Leslie signed a one-year, $675,000 contract with Vegas on Thursday.
Leslie has yet to make his NHL debut. The 24-year-old played 53 AHL games this season between Ontario and Chicago, scoring six goals and 22 points in the process. For now, it seems that Leslie is still buried within the organization and may not get a chance to see NHL time unless he's filling in for another injured player.
Leslie was traded from the Kings in exchange for future considerations, freelance sports writer Josh Cooper reports.
Leslie is a 24-year-old blueliner who's yet to make his NHL debut, but has recorded a goal and five points in 26 minor-league contests this season. It's unlikely that Leslie will be able to unseat any of the Golden Knights' current stable of defenders for a place on the roster, so he'll likely continue in the minors for the remainder of the campaign.
Leslie inked a one-year, two-way contract with the Kings on Friday.
Leslie has appeared in 95 games with the Kings' AHL affiliate over the past two seasons, compiling 28 points (five goals, 23 assists) while registering a sub-par minus-15 rating over that span. The 23-year-old blueliner will likely spend the the entirety of the 2017-18 campaign in the minors.
