LA Kings place potential franchise goaltender on WAIVERS after 17 goal game

Last night the Seattle Kraken and LA Kings played and it was one for the ages. Both of them scored a touchdown and more! The final score ended up being 9-8 in favour of the Kraken and it forced the Kings to make some drastic changes today.

Goaltending has been an issue for the LA Kings this season. Both goaltenders have a winning record, but both have very poor goal against and save percentages.

At the moment, Jonathan Quick who has been the long-time starter, has a 3.30 goals against average and .890 save percentage, and Cal Petersen who was supposed to take over the reins as starter last season has a 3.75 goal against average and .868 save percentage.

Today the Kings announced that the 28 year old Petersen has been placed on waivers:




On September 22, 2021 the Kings signed Petersen to a three year extension with an AAV of $5 million, which also includes a modified no trade clause. Things are not looking good for this goaltender who has not had a save percentage above .900 since signing the extension over a year ago.
