After not really tipping his hand at Wednesday’s practice, Kings coach Todd McLellan did appear to reveal at least a little bit of his lineup intentions heading into a weekend series vs. the Golden Knights.
Following a few roster moves, the Taxi Squad is officially listed as – Jaret Anderson-Dolan, Boko Imama, Austin Strand, Mark Alt, Tobias Bjornfot, and Jacob Ingham. Like we’ve seen a lot of this season, a few of those players will likely be activated tomorrow afternoon. Additionally, as we first reported earlier today, Arthur Kaliyev is rejoining AHL Ontario in time for their season opener on Saturday.
LA Kings groups at practice – Thursday, February 4
While there weren’t specific line combinations, players were arranged as follows:
Gray Jerseys — Andersson, Amadio, Brown, Carter, Kopitar, Iafallo, Imama and Wagner
White Jerseys — Anderson-Dolan, Frk, Grundstrom, Kempe, Luff, Moore and Vilardi
* We believe Kempe-Vilardi-Frk will likely be reunited for Friday’s game
Black Jerseys for all defensemen — Alt, Anderson, Bjornfot, Clague, Doughty, Maatta, MacDermid and Strand
Goaltenders — Quick, Petersen and Ingham
NOTE: Following practice, the team was heading to Las Vegas. McLellan and the players were not made available to the media.
