The Kings reassigned forward Linden Vey to their AHL affiliate in Manchester on Thursday.
Fraser has one point in 17 games for the Kings this season, but has been out for a week after getting hit by Toronto's Frazer McLaren on Dec. 11. The two-time Stanley Cup champion returned to practice earlier this week.
Vey made his NHL debut with the Kings on Nov. 7, scoring his first point two days later. The 22-year-old centre has five assists in 14 games with Los Angeles.
I have been blessed to play for 16 years in the NHL; it has been an amazing ride. I would like to thank the Tampa Bay Lightning and New York Rangers organizations and owners for providing me the opportunity to play the sport I love for so many years. I could have never played for so long or accomplished all that I have without the unwavering love and support from my wife, Heather, our three sons, Ryan, Lucas, and Mason, and my parents.
