Colin Fraser C LA 27 Days
Colin Fraser has been placed on waivers, according to the CBC's Elliotte Friedman.
The Kings save some cap space over the Olympic break if Fraser plays in the minors, so that may explain the decision. He has skated in 33 games this season and he has produced two assists. He also has 30 penalty minutes and 58 hits.

Colin Fraser (concussion) has passed his neuropsych test.
With that out of the way, Fraser participated in Monday's practice. Fraser sustained the injury on Wednesday, but didn't experience any symptoms the following day. "With the protocol and the safety, which is obviously a good thing - I'm not complaining - it just takes a little longer," Fraser said. It sounds like he will probably return in the very near future.

Colin Fraser was a healthy scratch on Saturday with the return of Mike Richards to the Kings lineup.
Fraser played in all 16 playoff games before finding himself as the odd man out Saturday. He had two assists in the playoffs after potting a couple of goals and seven points in 34 regular season games. He is not worth selecting in fantasy pools next season.

Center Colin Fraser of the Los Angeles Kings says a major key to beating Chicago in the Western Conference final series, which begins today, is to frustrate Blackhawks center/captain Jonathan Toews.
How do you frustrate him? "You shut him down, and Detroit was doing a good job of shutting him and [Patrick] Kane down (in the recently completed Detroit-Chicago playoff series). He wants to score goals and help his team to win. The less we can do that and hopefully that the more frustrated he can get. Get him off his game. Within the rules." The man assigned to spend quality time against Toews probably will be Kings center Anze Kopitar. He didn't play in the season opener against Chicago, still dealing with a knee injury, but saw plenty of Toews in the teams' other two meetings.

Center Colin Fraser, restored to the Los Angeles lineup after being scratched the previous four games, led the way to a 3-1 victory over the Oilers in Edmonton on Tuesday night by anchoring his team's fourth line and aggressively going to the net for a goal that was a thing of beauty for the Kings.
Fraser scored the fourth line's first goal and his first of the season. "Nobody wants to sit but we've got a deep team. We've got lots of depth," Fraser said. "We've been trying to find the right combo right now to get some wins. Obviously, it was nice to score when you've been sitting out four games."

Colin Fraser could find himself in the lineup against the Red Wings on Sunday.
Fraser practiced alongside the Kings fourth line of Jarrett Stoll, Brad Richardson and Trevor Lewis in Saturday's practice and there's a chance he replaces one of Richardson or Lewis in the contest. With one point and just three shots on goal in nine games, Fraser is not a fantasy option.
