Los Angeles Kings Activate Defenseman Jack Johnson; Boyle Returns to Manchester

EL SEGUNDO, CA — On January 17, hours before they are scheduled to face-off against the Dallas Stars at the American Airlines Center in Dallas (11:00 AM PST, televised on FSN West), the Los Angeles Kings activated defenseman Jack Johnson from injured reserve and assigned center Brian Boyle to the Manchester Monarchs of the American Hockey League, their primary minor league affiliate.

Johnson, 22, has missed the last 41 games while recovering from surgery to repair a torn labrum in his left shoulder which he suffered on October 12 after taking a hard, awkward hit in the Kings’ second game of the season.

Boyle, 24, has played in twenty games with the Kings this season, scoring a goal and contributing an assist for two points with eighteen penalty minutes.

In thirteen games with the Monarchs this season, Boyle has four goals with seven assists for eleven points and 35 penalty minutes.
