The LA Kings assigned14 players to the Ontario Reign as the team trends towards a 23-man roster for the 2021 regular season.

As teams around the league are finalizing their 23-man rosters counting toward the league’s $81.5M salary cap, the LA Kings sent 14 players to Ontario on Monday. Here is the list:

  • Daniel Brickley – D
  • Cole Hults – D
  • Sean Durzi – D
  • Jacob Moverare – D
  • Markus Phillips – D
  • Aidan Dudas – C
  • Mikey Eyssimont – C
  • Rasmus Kupari – C
  • Tyler Madden – C
  • Akil Thomas – C
  • Samuel Fagemo – LW
  • Boko Imama – LW
  • Jacob Ingham – G
  • Matt Villalta – G

Brickley and Imama were placed on waivers on Sunday, going unclaimed. The 23-man roster does not include the 4-6 AHL players the LA Kings can carry throughout the season. My projected taxi squad players are in bold.
