A person with direct knowledge of the decision tells The Associated Press that the Los Angeles Kings have placed veteran defenceman Christian Ehrhoff on waivers.

The person spoke on the condition of anonymity Wednesday because the Kings have not announced the move.

The 12-year NHL veteran is on his third team in three seasons after signing a one-year contract with Los Angeles last summer. He has two goals and nine assists while averaging 15 minutes of ice time in 40 games this season.

The move came after Ehrhoff had an assist in a 9-2 win at Boston on Tuesday.

Ehrhoff played for Pittsburgh last season. He spent the previous three seasons in Buffalo before having the final seven years of his 10-year, $40 million US contract bought out by the Sabres.
