The LA Kings have activated forward Trevor Lewis from injured reserve, according to Vice President and General Manager Rob Blake. Forward Martin Frk has been assigned to Ontario (AHL) to make room on the roster.
Lewis missed five games due to an upper-body injury suffered on Dec. 21 at Buffalo. Prior to the injury he had recorded six points (1-5=6) in 30 games this season. The Salt Lake City, Utah native has played in 648 career games since being drafted in the first-round (17th overall) by the Kings in the 2006 NHL Entry Draft. He has registered 157 points in his career (65-92=157).
Frk scored three goals in four games (3-0=3) during his first call-up to the Kings. At the time of his recall he led the Reign in goals (14) and points (23) and ranked tied for third in assists (9). He was recently named an AHL All-Star and is set to participate in the All-Star festivities in Ontario, Jan. 26-27.

In addition, defenseman Tobias Bjornfot and forward Rasmus Kupari have been assigned back to the Reign from their junior teams following the World Junior Tournament. Bjornfot and Sweden captured the bronze medal, while Kupari suffered an injury in Finland's first game, forcing him to miss the rest of the tournament.
The Kings host the Columbus Blue Jackets tonight in the third game of a four-game homestand. The game starts at 7:30 p.m. and will be broadcast on FOX Sports West, the FOX Sports App and the LA Kings Audio Network on iHeartRadio.
