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

There was a lot of talk off the ice. From a player's standpoint, that's not the talk in the room. GMs make decisions, coaches make decisions, but as a team you have to come together and be ready to go, and we are.
