Kings Activate Kopitar; Stewart Assigned
LOS ANGELES – The Los Angeles Kings have activated center Anze Kopitar from the non-roster list and have assigned forward Anthony Stewart to the Manchester Monarchs of the American Hockey League, Kings President/General Manager Dean Lombardi announced today.
Kopitar did not participate in training camp with the Kings. He was placed on the non-roster list on January 18 when the Kings officially set their player roster for the start of this season.
Stewart was acquired by the Kings from Carolina on January 13. He did not play in the Kings’ season opener at STAPLES Center against Chicago this past Saturday.
The Kings begin a three-game road trip in Colorado tonight beginning at 6 p.m. (PT). The game will be broadcast on FOX Sports West – including pre and post-game shows -- and KTLK AM 1150.
