LA Kings reclaim Troy Grosenick

Round and round, the goalie carousel in Edmonton goes.

Twenty four hours after being placed on waivers by the Oilers, Troy Grosenick has been reclaimed by the LA Kings — the team the Oilers originally got him from on the waiver wire.

The Grosenick era wasn’t a long one lasting only a month. Edmonton claimed him after losing Anton Forsberg on waivers to Carolina, and when Mike Smith went down with a still unknown injury that caused him to be placed on the IR.

Grosenick arrived in Edmonton and underwent a two-week quarantine in line with the NHL’s COVID protocols, and only got in a few practices with the team. Last week, he dressed for two games as a backup.

Smith is believed to be very close to returning and I imagine that’s why the Oilers placed Grosenick off waivers, but the move now means that Stuart Skinner will remain as the team’s third goaltender.

Sail on, Troy.
