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

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.
