Kings Try To Sneak Player Thru Waivers

from Eric Duhatschek of the Globe and Mail,
The strategy is used as a bluff — or it was until this past week, when the Los Angeles Kings actually tried to slip a player back to the NHL after he started the year in Europe. His name was Yanick Lehoux, one of the Kings' top minor-leaguers last season, who decided to play in Switzerland over the summer. Lehoux was unhappy with his European experience, so he agreed to re-sign with the Kings and try his luck in the NHL. L.A. signed him, put him on waivers, crossed their fingers — and promptly lost him when the Phoenix Coyotes, a divisional rival, put in a claim for his rights.
