Los Angeles Kings get C Jarret Stoll back for Game 1 of Western Conference finals at Chicago

CHICAGO - Jarret Stoll has returned to the Los Angeles Kings lineup on Saturday for the opener of the Western Conference finals against the Chicago Blackhawks.

The centre, one of the Kings' best players on faceoffs, has been sidelined with a suspected concussion since he was struck with an illegal hit to the head by San Jose's Raffi Torres in Game 1 of Los Angeles' second-round series against the Sharks.

Torres was suspended by the NHL for the remainder of the series.

Stoll has been skating with the team for several days. He had seven goals and 11 assists in 48 games in the regular season.

Quote of the Day

I first met him when I was 19 years old and he coached me for 13 consecutive years. I don't know how many athletes who have had that pleasure. Al Arbour was a man that left us not only feeling like champions, but left us with a lot of great memories that we can carry on through life.
