Prust was released from his professional tryout agreement Monday, Jim Cerny of Sporting News reports.

EDGE Analysis

Prust was brought in by Los Angeles back in August, but wasn't able to make enough of an impression and will now return to the free agent pool. After playing 35 games with Vancouver during the 2015-16 campaign, Prust was out of the league last year and will need to prove that he's worthy of regular-season roster spot elsewhere.

Prust will join Los Angeles on a professional tryout agreement, Jon Rosen of LA Kings Insider reports.

EDGE Analysis

After failing to secure an NHL deal heading into the 2016-17 campaign, Prust spent the year with DEL Nuremberg where he tallied three goals and five helpers in 29 outings. If the winger can land a permanent gig with the Kings, it is unlikely to be anything more than a depth option who could be watching from the press box more often than not.

Prust will not be offered a permanent contract prior to Opening Night, but will continue practicing with the team, Mark Masters of TSN reports.

EDGE Analysis

While it seems most likely Prust would sign with the Maple Leafs, he is now a free agent and could sign with any NHL team will practicing with Toronto. It is unclear what the future holds for the winger, but in terms of fantasy value, owners may want to avoid utilizing him until something more concrete regarding his status is announced. The 32-year-old was held to just 35 contests last season due to injury, which should be another red flag.

Prust should be ready for training camp after saying an ankle injury sustained last season is "feeling back to 100 percent," Bruce Bennett of TheHockeyNews.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Prust was limited to only 35 games in the 2015-16 campaign due to a lingering ankle injury but it appears to an offseason of rest and rehab has brought the 32-year-old left winger back to full strength. Prust played a career-low number of games due to the ailment but has apparently been working with Leafs' skating coach, Barb Undersell, to refine his stride. Entering his first year with Toronto, the left-handed sniper figures to provide depth at forward during the upcoming season.

Prust (ankle) inked a professional tryout agreement with the Maple Leafs on Monday, James Mirtle of the Globe and Mail reports.

EDGE Analysis

Prust missed the last 38 games of the 2015-16 season for the Canucks due to an ankle injury and ultimately suited up in a mere 35 contests. In those outings, the veteran compiled just seven points but did add 59 PIM and 40 hits. If he makes the team in Toronto, it will be for his gritty, aggressive style of play rather than his scoring ability. Unless you need ancillary stats, fantasy owners will want to look elsewhere for a low-cost winger.

Prust will shut it down and begin rehabbing for next season due to a lingering ankle injury, Ben Birnell of the Utica Observer-Dispatch reports.

EDGE Analysis

Prust was reassigned to AHL Utica in early February, but was thought to be a potential recall for some playoff depth if needed. The 31-year-old tallied one goals and six assists in nine games for the Comets which matched his production with the Canucks this season, albeit in 35 contests. In terms of fantasy value, the winger is definitely low-end as he has broken the 20-point mark only once in his NHL career.

Prust cleared waivers Wednesday and has been sent to AHL Utica, Ben Kuzma of the Vancouver Province reports.

EDGE Analysis

Prust was placed on waivers Tuesday, but went unclaimed and will now join the team's AHL affiliate. The winger will serve as organizational depth, but could be recalled later in the season if the Canucks are in need of another forward.

Prust was placed on waivers Tuesday, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports.

EDGE Analysis

Prust's first season in Vancouver has largely been a disappointment, as the winger has just one goal and six assists through 35 contests. It's possible he sticks around with the Canucks, but it's unlikely the 31-year-old will take on a much larger role than he currently occupies.

As expected, Prust (leg) will return to action Wednesday against the Hurricanes.

EDGE Analysis

Prust was held out of Monday's game against the Coyotes with a leg injury, but returned to practice Tuesday, which was the first indication he would likely be available for Wednesday's matchup with Carolina. The 31-year-old winger will skate alongside Jared McCann and Derek Dorsett on the Canucks' third line in Wednesday's tilt.

Prust (leg) is expected to play Wednesday against the Hurricanes.

EDGE Analysis

Prust missed Monday's matchup with the Coyotes with a leg injury, but has participated in the Canucks' last few practices, and will likely suit up for Wednesday's tilt against Carolina. If the 31-year-old winger is able to go Wednesday, he'll return to a bottom-six role.
