LOS ANGELES –
The Los Angeles Kings have activated defensemen Drew Doughty
from the injured reserve list and have re-assigned defenseman Slava Voynov
to the American Hockey League’s Manchester Monarchs, Kings President/General Manager Dean Lombardi announced today.
Doughty, 21, has missed the last five games after suffering an upper body injury in the Kings-Flyers game in Philadelphia on Oct. 15. In four games this season he has one point (an assist) and two penalty minutes. The 6-0, 212-pound native of London, Ontario was signed to an eight-year contract (longest in club history) on Sept. 30.
Voynov, has played in five games with the Kings (first five career NHL games) recording three points (2-1=3), zero penalty minutes and a plus-3 rating. Voynov collected all three of those points, including the game-winning goal, Thursday in the Kings’ 5-3 victory at Dallas. The 5-11, 199-pound native of Chelyabinsk, Russia, has also played in two games this season with the Monarchs, recording two points (1-1=2), two penalty minutes and a plus-five rating. Voynov was selected by the Kings in the second-round (32nd overall) of the 2008 NHL Entry Draft.
The Kings (6-2-1) return to action tonight at Jobing.com Arena against the Phoenix Coyotes. Game-time is slated for 6 p.m. The Kings will conclude their three-game road trip tomorrow in Denver against the Avalanche, with game-time slated for 5 p.m. (PT).
