  • Matt Greene: Joining Kings as scout

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (8/14/17) Greene will join the Los Angeles organization as a member of the scouting department -- ending his 12-year professional career, LA Kings Insider Jon Rosen reports.

    After three years with Edmonton, Greene spent nine seasons with the Kings -- racking up a total of 615 NHL games in which he registered 17 goals and 63 assists. During the 2016-17 campaign, the 34-year-old saw action in just 26 outings -- in part due to injuries -- so it should come as little surprise he is ready to enter the next phase of his career in hockey.

    Matt Greene: Waived by Kings

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (6/22/17) Greene (back) was placed on waivers by the Kings in order to buy him out of the final year of his contract, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.

    The decision to buy out Greene was not unexpected, as Los Angeles was looking to save some cap room. The 34-year-old has played in just 29 games over the last two seasons due to injuries, so it wouldn't come as too much of a surprise if he opted to hang up his skates. If this is it for the Michigan native, he'll end his career with 615 games played, in which he recorded 17 goals and 63 helpers. Even if the two-time Stanley Cup champion does land with another club, it's unlikely that he'll offer much in terms of fantasy value. In order to be placed on waivers, Greene by rule must have been cleared from his back injury.

    Kings' Matt Greene: Will be bought out

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (6/13/17) Greene is expected to be bought out of the last year of his contract, worth $2.5 million, Jon Rosen of LA Kings Insider reports.

    This buyout would reduce the cap hit of Greene's contract from $2.5 million to $833,000 next season. The 34-year-old, who has been rehabbing from back surgery, was activated Tuesday for the specific purpose of this buyout. Greene hasn't collected more than 10 points in a season since 2011, so freeing up that cap space was an easy decision for the Kings.

    Kings' Matt Greene: Rehabbing from back surgery

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/25/17) Greene underwent back surgery at some point during the second half of the season, Jon Rosen of LA Kings Insider reports.

    Greene has dealt with an amalgam of injuries over the years and has been limited 29 regular-season games over the past two campaigns as a result. The 33-year-old has never been much of an offensive threat, as his career-high 15 points in 2011-12 will attest, and his inability to stay healthy may doom him to an early retirement, especially considering that he has just one year remaining on his contract with the Kings.

    Kings' Matt Greene: Placed on injured reserve

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/30/17) Greene (undisclosed) was placed on injured reserve (retroactive to Jan. 20) by the Kings on Monday, a href="https://twitter.com/ElliottTeaford/status/826196337997729792">Elliott Teaford of the Southern California News Group reports.

    Greene has been dealing with some old injuries of late, and the issues will hold him out for a little while. It's unclear how long he will be shut down for, but the veteran blueliner's placement on injured reserve shouldn't come as much of a surprise. Expect further news to surface as he draws closer to rejoining the lineup, but his status shouldn't be of much concern in the vast majority of fantasy leagues.
