Monday: Hagelin will miss four-to-six weeks, reports Jon Rosen of LA Kings Insider (Twitter link).
Sunday: The Los Angeles Kings can’t seem to find any continuity as injuries continue to play a part in the team’s downfall this season. After just having acquired veteran Carl Hagelin from the Pittsburgh Penguins for Tanner Pearson, the Kings announced they have placed him on injured reserve with a lower-body injury and consider him to be “week-to-week,” with an MCL sprain. He will have an MRI on Monday.
Hagelin was starting to connect in his time with the Kings, having played five games now with Los Angeles. Hagelin has been a big influence on rookie Matt Luff, who has posted three goals in the three straight games for the Kings. Hagelin assisted on two of them. He had fallen out of favor in Pittsburgh as he averaged under 15:00 per game in November, but has received more playing time in Los Angeles, averaging close to 16 minutes per contest.
The team has recalled Michael Amadio from Ontario, who has already appeared in 13 games for the Kings this season, although he has scored just one goal in that time. Amadio has played just three games for the Reign, putting up three assists.
