Kings’ morning notes – defenseman recalled, line combos, etc.

After taking yesterday off the Kings will return to the ice at their practice facility in El Segundo at 10am this morning. Here’s a couple quick notes and then we’ll update this in a few hours…

– The status of defenseman Alec Martinez is still TBD. Expect an update following practice.

– Rookie Andrew Campbell has been recalled from Manchester (AHL). This is his second call-up this season, however he didn’t play a game last time. On a positive note, he scored for the Monarchs last night, his first in over a year.  See the highlights here.

– Coming off of a win coaches usually keep their line combinations together. If Darryl Sutter goes with that philosophy, they’ll suit up like this:

[update 10:15am… these are official, this is how they’re skating today]

Simon Gagne – Anze Kopitar – Dustin Brown

Kyle Clifford – Jeff Carter – Justin Williams

Dwight King – Mike Richards – Jordan Nolan

Dustin Penner – Jarret Stoll – Trevor Lewis

Leaving Colin Fraser and Brad Richardson as the extra skaters.

On defense they would be paired as follows:

Keaton Ellerby – Drew Doughty

Rob Scuderi – Slava Voynov

Jake Muzzin – Davis Drewiske

We’ll provide live updates via twitter today. So be sure to follow along.

[update II…the first round of detailed quotes have been posted – includes Sutter on injuries, goaltending and defense]

  1. Robyn Pennington says:

    If Muzzin is in, what’s the point of recalling Andrew Campbell (again)?

    • Muzzin only there as a placeholder to balance out the pairs. Campbell won’t be in LA until tonight. No decision has been made on the pairings for Friday night yet.

  2. I don’t like Gagne on the top line at all. He is just not the player he once was, and never will be again.

    He is undoubtedly better defensively than Williams, and is probably the better overall player, but in no way does he bring the offensive chemistry to that line in the way the Williams does.

    Honestly I would not even put Gange in the lineup – I’d form the forward lines much like last years playoff lineup (prior to his return) or find a place for Simon on another line.
