Yanick Lehoux

I know he went down with a knee injury mid-way through last season. But, my questions to you are:

1. Has there been any word on his injury, in regards to how he's recovering from it?

2. Will he be ready to play in October

3. Will he be in the Kings opening night lineup?

He was skating on his knee during practice in 15 minute stints with the team prior to the end of the season. He was skating wtih Pushkarev and they were taking shots on Munce at a local ice arena during the playoffs. There were rumors that had they gone deeper into the playoffs that he might have rejoined the team. I'm sort of glad that didn't happen. Based on all that, the assumption has to be that he'll be at whatever camp the Kings may have - if they have one - and certainly the Monarchs camp when it starts up. I personally doubt he'll start the season with the Kings as I suspect they will want to see him play in the minors following his injury before they bring him up.

If the waiver section of the new CBA is the same as it was in the old CBA, I believe Lehoux will be subject to waivers. So, if he is subject to waivers and assuming that he's on the "protected list" for the waiver draft, if they want him to start in Manchester, they'll basically have two choices. 1. Place him on waivers for the purpose of assigning him to Manchester and hope no other team claims him. 2. Send him on a "conditioning assignment" which translates to him having to remain on the Kings 23-man roster at his NHL salary while in Manchester. Conditioning assignments are "typically" 2-weeks but can actually be longer upon mutual agreement between the player and the club...Even with the injury last season, I just don't see him clearing waivers. So, if it works out that he will be subject to waivers, I'm not so sure he's in Manchester for long if at all...

how? I allways thought teams had 1 "free" demotion to the AHL under the old CBA rules?

I don't know much about how he's recovering, but ReggieMoto answered it really well. As for making the Kings roster on opening night, I'd say that depends how well training camp goes.

I can see Yannik up with the King's. Like King's Pawn said:

I would imagine that his entry level contract from the old CBA will make him look like that much more of a "bargin".

No free demotion that I was aware of. Basically, if a player was on the protected list, he'd have to clear waivers coming back unless he was sent on a conditioning assignment.

If a player was not on the protected list, thus making him available to other clubs in the waiver draft and went unclaimed and had not played in 10 or more NHL games (cumulative) or spent more than 30-days (cumulative) on the NHL roster since the waiver draft he can be sent to the minors without first clearing waivers.

Then there's the "emergency" recall, but we'll wait to see how the new CBA shakes out before getting into that...

Like I said previously, I'm not sure if Lehoux's going to be subject to waivers this season or not so much of this is "what if" speculation on my part.

I believe that Yanic was academic player of the year in the Q the year he was drafted. Sometimes when your 19 and smart you can be pretty dumb, (I look back on my youth with and wonder how I made it through). He has had some time to mellow in the cask. This injury is one that many players have come back from. His time is now, if he can exorcise his demons. He has so much upside, he started hittin' on all 8 last season so he still might be a superstar in LA. Just a guess, but I think right he's 20/80 to start with the big club next year in LA next year. It sure would be nice to start getting the prospects we've been waiting for for so long.

That's why I hope Yanick will make damages next season in the NHL

I wanna see what he can do when given the chance. We could put him on Avery's line, just to confuse the other team, hell may as well throw him on the second line with the current team. I think the thing that might hold him back is if we actualy go out and grab some free agents.

"He's been skating on a regular basis for a while but he can't have any contact until the 16 weeks (following surgery) are up," said McDonough. "His range of motion is great. He's going to strengthen his legs now but he's skating and can cut and stop. He just can't have any contact."


With this article being 9 weeks olds, Lehoux should be good to go 100% now.

He was well on his way to getting it together when he sustained his injury. Stay tuned.

before he got hurt he was as dominant as any player i had seen in the AHL in awhile offensivly. 52 points in 38 games I believe. If he is healthy and if he can physically and mentally bounce back from the injury, Pavel Rosa isnt even in his class.

Agree. But realistically, what are the odds that Yanick will make the roster?

It all depends on what our roster looks like in the aftermath of a new cba.

Exactly...You can't lay odds if you don't know who the players are...
