LOS ANGELES – The Los Angeles Kings have recalled forward Oscar Moller from his conditioning assignment with the Manchester Monarchs of the American Hockey League, Kings President/General Manager Dean Lombardi announced today.
Moller, 20, has skated in one game with the Kings (February 12 vs. Calgary) since returning from an injury (fractured clavicle) that he suffered at the 2009 World Junior Championships, which were held in Ottawa from December 26 to January 5. The 5-11, 180-pound native of Stockholm, Sweden has played in 31 games with the Kings this season, his first in the NHL, and has 13 points (6-7=13) and 14 penalty minutes. Moller, who was Team Sweden’s captain at the World Junior Championships, recorded five points (2-3=5) and six penalty minutes in eight games with Manchester during his recent conditioning assignment. He was drafted by the Kings in the second round (52nd overall) in the 2007 NHL Entry Draft.
