Kings defenseman Mitchell in 'holding pattern'

Los Angeles Kings defenseman Willie Mitchell had another medical procedure on his injured knee Tuesday, and his return to the lineup remains unknown, general manager Dean Lombardi said.

"We're still in the same holding pattern," Lombardi said. "There's really no timetable."

Mitchell has not played this season.

Lombardi said defenseman Alec Martinez is on schedule in his 2-4-week return from an upper-body injury sustained in mid-February, and defenseman Matt Greene is ahead of schedule in his return from a projected three-month back injury suffered in January.

Quote of the Day

I just wanted to do something to take my mind off the shot and let me relax a little bit. It seemed like the fans liked it. I'm glad I was able to score.
