EL SEGUNDO, CA — On March 26, the Los Angeles Kings activated forward Andrei Loktionov from the injured reserve list and they assigned him to the Manchester Monarchs of the American Hockey League, their primary minor league affiliate.
Loktionov, 19, made his Kings and National Hockey League debut on November 25 in Edmonton after being recalled from Manchester on November 23. During the game, he suffered a dislocated shoulder and he was placed on injured reserve the next day.
At the time of his recall, Loktionov was Manchester’s team leader with six goals and eleven assists for seventeen points in twenty games. He was tied for third among AHL rookies in overall scoring. He was ranked second in assists among AHL rookies as well.
Loktionov returned to the Monarchs’ lineup on March 26 when they defeated the Bridgeport Sound Tigers, 4-1. In that game, Loktionov scored his seventh goal of the season at 4:34 of the third period.
The 5-10, 179-pound native of Voskresensk, Russia was selected by the Kings in the fifth round (123rd overall) of the 2008 NHL Entry Draft.
