12/4/22: Per a team announcement, Dudas has been loaned back to AHL Ontario.
12/3/22: The roster shuffling in Los Angeles has been rather frequent in recent weeks although it has often involved the same few players. That isn’t the case this time around as the team announced that they’ve recalled center Aidan Dudas from Ontario of the AHL.
This will be the 22-year-old’s first promotion to the full NHL roster after only previously having a pair of one-day taxi squad stints in the 2020-21 campaign. Dudas, a fourth-round pick of the Kings back in 2018 (113th overall), has played in 18 games with the Reign this season and is tied for the team lead in goals with six. He’s in the final year of his entry-level deal and will be a restricted free agent this summer so it appears they want to take at least a quick look to see how he is progressing.
Los Angeles was only carrying 22 players on their active roster following the re-assignment of Tyler Madden to Ontario on Friday. As a result, they didn’t need to make an additional move to open up a spot for Dudas to be recalled.
