Kings Assign Toffoli To Manchester
LOS ANGELES, CA Ė The Los Angeles Kings, the parent club of the Manchester Monarchs, have assigned right wing Tyler Toffoli to the Monarchs, Kings President/General Manager Dean Lombardi announced today.
Toffoli, who turns 21 years old on Wednesday, has played in eight games for the Kings this season, his first in the NHL. He has recorded five points (2-3=5), a plus-three rating and two penalty minutes. He averaged 11:55 minutes per game and one of his goals came on the power-play.
On March 10, the Kings recalled Toffoli after he played in 55 regular season games with the Monarchs this season and recorded 48 points (28-20=48), 18 penalty minutes and a team-leading plus-20 rating. At the time of his recall his 28 goals led the Monarchs, all AHL rookie skaters, and that goal total also ranked second overall in the league. His 48 points were tied for first in the AHL among rookie skaters and rank second overall on his team.
Originally selected by the Kings in the second-round (47th overall) of the 2010 NHL Entry Draft, the 6-foot-1, 187-pound native of Scarborough, Ontario, last week Toffoli was named the winner of the Dudley (Red) Garrett Memorial Award as the AHLís outstanding rookie for the 2012-13 season.
The Monarchs embark on a three-game road trip to close the 2012-13 regular season when they take on the Binghamton Senators at the Broome County Veterans Memorial Arena on Friday, April 19 at 7:05 p.m. Catch all the play-by-play action of Monarchs hockey with Ken Cail on the Monarchs Radio Network WGIR 610 AM, WGIR.com and at www.manchestermonarchs.com, presented by Manchester-Boston Regional Airport.
