LA Kings assign defenseman Derek Forbort to Ontario of AHL

The Kings sent defenseman Derek Forbort to their American Hockey League team in Ontario on Thursday, a sign that Matt Greene could be ready to return to their lineup for Saturday’s game against the Nashville Predators. The Kings had a day off Thursday, so players and coaches were unavailable for comment. Forbort, 23, made his NHL debut in the Kings’ 2-1 victory Oct. 16 over the Minnesota Wild.
