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.

Quote of the Day

He's only 17 but he can see the ice so well and he moves the puck and goes to the open ice all the time, so I just think he's a player that is ready to play in the NHL. I'm really looking forward to coaching someone like this.

— U.S. National Junior Team coach Ron Wilson on Auston Matthews, the projected No. 1 pick of the 2016 NHL Draft
