That's not true. Any team that claims does have to keep him up unless they want to put him back on waivers, however that 30 day thing is not true. A team can claim him and put him back on waivers the next day. However if this happens, the Kings can claim him back and send him down without dealing with waivers (provided nobody else put a claim in). So yes, a team will only put a claim in if they think he can contribute to the NHL roster, they cannot claim him and stash him in minors in their own system.

I think you are confusing having to keep him up with what happens if he clears. If he clears waivers, the Kings can send him back and forth without waivers again until he stays on the NHL roster for 30 days (or plays 10 games).
