Jordan Nolan, who played a big role in the success of the Los Angeles Kings' productive fourth line during the team's run to the 2012 Stanley Cup, was one of 15 players assigned Friday to the club's American Hockey League affiliate, the Manchester Monarchs.

Nolan, a 2009 seventh-round pick, had four points in 26 regular-season games and two points in 20 playoff games, but after he was recalled in February, the Kings went 14-8-5.

Also sent to Manchester was Tanner Pearson, the team's 2012 first-round draft pick. The 20-year-old left wing had 91 points in 60 games for the Barrie Colts of the Ontario Hockey League last season.

Other sent to Manchester were forwards Andy Andreoff, Robert Czarnik, Brandon Kozun, Andrei Loktionov, Brian O'Neill, Nikolay Prokhorkin, Tyler Toffoli, Linden Vey and Jordan Weal; defensemen Nicolas Deslauriers and David Kolomatis; and goalies J.F. Berube and Martin Jones.

I've been getting frustrated lately, and the only thing keeping me sane was the team winning and other people stepping up and scoring. Then you just kind of let it go and realize you can end the series with one shot, that frustration goes away for a brief moment, and that's what happened.
