Los Angeles Kings put Jeff Carter on injured reserve; recall Tyler Toffoli, Linden Vey

LOS ANGELES, Calif. - The Los Angeles Kings have placed high-scoring forward Jeff Carter on injured reserve with a lower-body injury.

The Kings recalled forwards Tyler Toffoli and Linden Vey from the minors Saturday before their home game against Nashville.

Los Angeles also announced defenceman Keaton Ellerby was claimed off waivers by Winnipeg.

Carter has five goals and four assists in 14 games this season, tying with Justin Williams for the team lead in goals. The forward led the Western Conference with 26 goals last season.

The Kings haven't specified the nature of Carter's injury, but he was wearing a walking boot Friday at practice.

Ellerby still hadn't played for the Kings this season. Los Angeles acquired him from Florida for a draft pick in February.

Quote of the Day

Just the feel for the direction they were headed and what they're trying to do, it just felt that this is a really good thing for this organization. They've got the pieces. We can put something together and go on a run or two and be together for a while, and I'm really excited about that opportunity. The team we have here has an opportunity to win, and that's the most attractive thing.
