The LA Kings have assigned defenseman Kale Clague to Ontario (AHL), according to Vice President and General Manager Rob Blake.
Clague made his NHL debut Dec. 21 at Buffalo. In total, he appeared in four games during his first NHL call-up, going scoreless and averaging 14:34 time on ice per game during that stretch.
Selected by the Kings in the second-round (51st overall) during the 2016 NHL Draft, he tallied 15 points (9-6=15) in 27 games with the Reign earlier this season.

At the time of this recall the Regina, Saskatchewan native led all Reign defensemen in goals, assists and points, and ranked tied for second in the AHL among defensemen in goals. He was also tied for the team-lead in power-play goals (3).
Clague is in his second season with the Reign, where he has posted 44 points (13-31=44) in 79 games, leading all Reign defensemen during this time.
The Kings wrap up a four-game homestand tomorrow against the Dallas Stars. The game starts at 7 p.m. and will be broadcast on NBCSN and the LA Kings Audio Network on iHeartRadio.
