The Kings also recalled goalie Martin Jones from the AHL on Wednesday.
Scrivens went 7-5-4 over 19 appearances in his only season with the Kings, who acquired him from Toronto last summer in a deal including goalie Jonathan Bernier.
Scrivens had a 1.97 goals-against average, a .931 save percentage and three shutouts with the Kings. He excelled during a 6-1-3 stretch immediately after starter Jonathan Quick injured his groin in early November and missed 24 games.
But Scrivens was supplanted by Jones, who won his first eight starts to tie an NHL record. Jones has a 1.41 goals-against average, a .950 save percentage and three shutouts.
It's cool when you think about how many great American players have played the game and the two players that were at that 18-game point streak and what they've done in their careers. It's pretty cool right now, but it was kind of overshadowed by the loss.
