The Kings made left wing Dwight King the first Reign player to be added to an NHL roster on Tuesday, recalling him from the American Hockey League’s Manchester Monarchs.
King was summoned following injuries to a pair of left wings in Los Angeles.
Scott Parse will undergo hip labrum surgery and is expected
to miss 3-4 months. The surgery is expected to
take place next Tuesday in Nashville
and be performed by Dr. Thomas Byrd. Alexei Ponikarovsky fractured a finger Nov. 6 and hasn’t played since, but was finally placed on injured reserve Tuesday.
Head coach Terry Murray said that King figures to slide into Ponikarovsky’s former position at left wing on a line with Michal Handzus and Wayne Simmonds. More in tomorrow’s editions of the Sun and Daily Bulletin.
King was one of nine former Reign players on AHL rosters at the time of his recall: Jon Rheault, Geoff Walker, Bud Holloway, Jordan Nolan, Jeff Zatkoff, Martin Jones, Colten Teubert and Patrick Mullen.
