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

The groove of being behind a bench is going to be interesting at first, but thank God we have a few exhibition games to get rid of those cobwebs. Overall the excitement of it all and the freshness and coming back refreshed, all those things are going to be assets. If [the players] come ready to give their best effort in practice and games, good things are going to happen. I'm always looking for results. It's not always on the scoreboard. It's winning and building something.
