LOS ANGELES – The Los Angeles Kings have recalled goaltender Martin Jones and forward Tanner Pearson from the Manchester Monarchs of the AHL and have placed defenseman Matt Greene and forward Kyle Clifford on the injured reserve list, Kings President/General Manager Dean Lombardi announced today.

Jones, 23, has appeared in 13 games for the Monarchs this season, posting a 9-2-2 record with a 2.24 goals-against average, .927 save percentage and one shutout. Among AHL goaltenders he ranks first in wins, ninth in GAA, tied for seventh in save percentage and tied for third in shutouts.
The 6-4, 187-pound native of North Vancouver, B.C. is in his fourth season with Monarchs. Coming into this season Jones had a 68-54-7 career record, with a 2.77 GAA, .920 save percentage and 10 shutouts in 136 appearances with Manchester. Jones was undrafted and signed with the Kings as a free agent on Oct. 2, 2008. He will wear No. 31.

Pearson, 21, has played in 15 games for the Monarchs this season, recording 11 points (7-4=11), eight penalty minutes and a plus-8 rating. His seven goals are tied for the club lead (tied for 10th in the AHL), while his plus-minus rating is also tied for the team lead. Pearson will wear No. 70.
The 6-1, 200-pound native of Kitchener, Ontario made his NHL debut in Game 3 of the Western Conference Semifinals last season against San Jose, becoming the third player in Kings history to make his NHL debut during the postseason. Among AHL rookies last season he ranked: tied for seventh in points (47), tied for seventh in goals (19), tied for ninth in assists (28) and tied for eighth in plus-minus (+17). Pearson was selected by the Kings in the first round (30th overall) in the 2012 NHL Draft.

Greene was placed on IR (retroactive to Nov. 2) with an upper body injury.
Clifford was placed on IR (retroactive to Nov. 9) also with an upper body injury.

The Kings’ four-game road trip continues tomorrow on Long Island, with game-time against the Islanders set for 4 p.m. (PT), coverage to start at 3:30 p.m. (PT). The game will be broadcast on FOX Sports West and KTLK.
