The LA Kings have recalled goaltender Cal Petersen from the Ontario Reign, Kings Vice President and General Manager Rob Blake announced this morning.
Petersen is expected to practice with the Kings this morning.
Kings goaltender Jack Campbell suffered a meniscus tear in his knee that requires surgery. He is considered week-to-week after the surgery with recovery time expected to be four-to-six weeks. He was injured during the Kings game against the Calgary Flames on Saturday.
In addition, the Kings on Sunday assigned forward Matt Luff to the Reign.
Petersen, 24, has played in 10 games with the Reign this season, his second season with the club after signing with the Kings in 2017 as a free agent. He has a 2-3-1 record, a 4.29 goals-against-average and a .881 save percentage.
