Los Angeles Kings recall F Linden Vey from AHL affiliate, replacing Tyler Toffoli

LOS ANGELES, Calif. - The Los Angeles Kings have recalled forward Linden Vey from their AHL affiliate in Manchester.

The Kings made the move Thursday before opening a five-game road trip at St. Louis.

Vey has appeared in 14 games for the Kings this season, recording five assists.

Vey takes the roster spot vacated by Tyler Toffoli, who was sent back to Manchester on Wednesday.

Toffoli is in an 11-game goal drought. The move also would allow the rookie to play in the AHL during the NHL's Olympic break.

Quote of the Day

Not only is it a great idea, but if you don't [start using analytics] you're going to fall behind. You have to be on the cutting edge. It was [Arizona Coyotes assistant general manager] Darcy Regier who said, 'If you didn't invent it, you have to be the second- or third-best copier, because if you're fourth or fifth you've got no chance.'
