D Willie Mitchell returns to Kings lineup for Game 1 of Western Conference final vs Chicago

CHICAGO - Los Angeles Kings defenceman Willie Mitchell is active for Game 1 of the Western Conference final against the Chicago Blackhawks.

Mitchell had been out since Game 6 of Los Angeles' first-round series against San Jose. He had one goal and 11 assists in 76 games for the Kings during the regular season.

Fellow defenceman Robyn Regehr remained out with an injury Sunday. He has missed the Kings' last seven games.

For the Blackhawks, defenceman Michal Rozsival is active after he was a healthy scratch for the last two games of their second-round series against Minnesota.

Quote of the Day

Unless he really collapses, I don't see him going anywhere. I've been very impressed with his composure and maturity. Once the regular season started, he was a different guy; it was like game on and almost as if he's been around for a long time.
