Today, Jake Muzzin was recalled from Manchester.

Well that was fast.

Unfortunately it is because Drew Doughty was placed on IR today, retroactive to October 21st.  Far as I can tell, the injured reserve rule is that a player must be out of action for at least 7 days.  Retroactive to October 21st puts Doughty at 5 days.  This means that the earliest Doughty could return, assuming he stays healthy, is Thursday (10/28) against the Dallas Stars.

This MAY mean that Murray is also unhappy with one of Harrold or Drewiske (probably Drewiske) and would like to give him the bench for a game.  That may be totally off base as the Kings would likely want to carry a 7th defenseman on the roster regardless of how well or poorly the top 6 is playing.

So, congrats once again Muzz, I hope to see you in Manchester again come Thursday through no fault of your own.

  1. I would expect Doughty to be out until Saturday. No reason to fly to Dallas for one game. Give him the extra couple of days off.

  2. Jake Muzzin the Kings favorite Yo-Yo.
    I think it just may be a depth move. With back to back games the Kings may want an extra Dman in case a minor bump happens that would cause a guy to miss a game.
