The Kings made the last of their cuts Monday, sending defenseman Jeff Schultz to the Manchester (N.H.) Monarchs of the American Hockey League and reaching the NHL’s 23-man roster limit. Schultz was the odd-man out in a defense corps of eight. The Kings’ roster for opening night Thursday against the Minnesota Wild will look like this:
Goaltenders–Jonathan Quick, Ben Scrivens.
Defensemen–Drew Doughty, Keaton Ellerby, Matt Greene, Alec Martinez, Willie Mitchell, Jake Muzzin, Robyn Regehr, Slava Voynov.
Centers–Anze Kopitar, Colin Fraser, Mike Richards, Jarret Stoll.
Left wingers–Dustin Brown, Daniel Carcillo, Kyle Clifford, Matt Frattin, Dwight King.
Right wingers–Jeff Carter, Trevor Lewis, Jordan Nolan, Justin Williams.
Scrivens, Carcillo and Frattin are new to the roster for 2013-14. Jonathan Bernier, Dustin Penner and Rob Scuderi are playing elsewhere this season.
