Korbinian Holzer was back in the press box after Josh Manson returned to the lineup Friday.

Coach Bruce Boudreau was pleased with the play of Holzer while he was active but returned to Manson after a six-game absence due to injury. "I thought Holzy did real good," Boudreau said. "Created plays. Did a lot of good things. Josh was doing those same things before he got hurt. He’d earned the right to make this team, so he’s healthy (to play)." Holzer has one assist in seven games this season so he has no fantasy value in traditional pools.

Korbinian Holzer has been placed on waivers by the Anaheim Ducks.

Holzer had six points and 25 penalty minutes in 34 games with the Toronto Maple Leafs in 2014-15. He inked a one-year, $750,000 contract with the Ducks in the summer though. It's a one-way agreement, which means he'll get paid the same amount in the minors, but his contract is small enough that Anaheim can completely bury it from a cap perspective by demoting him. He might get called up at some point, but we don't see him having any fantasy value in standard leagues anyways.
