Minnesota placed forward Devin Setoguchi on injured reserve with a lower-body injury.

"I don't think this is something that's going to be real serious, but we don't expect him in the next week," coach Mike Yeo said.

KINGS
Simon Gagne - Anze Kopitar - Justin Williams
Dustin Brown - Jarret Stoll - Trent Hunter
Dustin Penner - Andrei Loktionov - Ethan Moreau
Kyle Clifford - Colin Fraser - Kevin Westgarth

Drew Doughty - Rob Scuderi
Jack Johnson - Slava Voynov
Matt Greene - Alec Martinez

Jonathan Quick

Los Angeles activated Martinez off the injured reserve list and placed Willie Mitchell on IR.

Martinez has missed the past 10 games with an upper-body injury suffered on Nov. 12, coincidentally against Minnesota.

Mitchell has a groin injury suffered early in the game against Florida on Dec. 1.
