The Los Angeles Kings have placed Jeff Schultz on waivers.

Schultz spent most of last season in the American Hockey League, as he played just nine games with the Kings. This season, he played in the Los Angeles' opener against San Jose but was a healthy scratch in Friday's loss to Arizona. His fantasy upside is non-existent.

Jeff Schultz was injured in Game 1 of the AHL final when he took a huge hit from Utica's Jake Virtanen.

Schultz did not return to the game following the hit in the first period. "We’ve had guys injured and had guys recalled," Manchester coach Mike Strothers said. "Schultzy was out towards the end of the year, and we put other defensemen in. We feel quite confident that whoever we put in, Kevin Raine, Nick Ebert, we have guys who’ve played a lot of hockey for us all season long. I’ll tell you what, those guys have been working extremely hard. So, you know what? Regardless of what we do tomorrow, whoever we put in, they’ll be ready to go."

Jeff Schultz has been summoned back up to LA from AHL Manchester in the wake of Robyn Regehr's hand injury.

This will be Schultz's first regular season game as a King if gets in the lineup on Saturday, although he did play in seven scoreless playoff games in their 2014 Cup run. The steady defensive defenseman doesn't have a lot of fantasy value, but he can be counted on to block nearly a shot a game.

Jeff Schultz's two-year deal with the Kings is worth $1.7 million.

It's a one-way deal, although so was Schultz's last contract and that didn't stop Los Angeles from burying him in the minors for most of the 2013-14 campaign. At best, Schultz will be a seventh defenseman with the Kings at the start of the season.

The Kings have re-signed defenseman Jeff Schultz to a two-year contract.

Schultz got some action with the Kings due to injuries in the postseason, but he spent the better part of the year with Manchester of the AHL. He carries no fantasy value and is nothing more than a depth player for Los Angeles.

Coach Darryl Sutter has been pleased with the play of defenseman Jeff Schultz.

Schultz spent most of the regular season with Manchester of the AHL but was pressed into duty in the playoffs with injuries to both Willie Mitchell and Robyn Regehr. Mitchell may be close to returning but the play of Schultz defensively should keep him in the lineup for now.

Jeff Schultz is expected to replace the injured Robyn Regehr on the Los Angeles blueline Monday.

Schultz spent most of the season in the AHL playing for Manchester. "He just said, 'Just go out there and play,'" Schultz said of coach Darryl Sutter, who had a chat with him on Sunday. "It's hard to replace a guy like Robyn, but I feel like I'm capable of doing a similar job of what he can do." Schultz had two goals and 13 points in 67 games with Manchester so do not expect anything out of him offensively in the playoffs.
