Kyle Clifford Joins Reign on Conditioning AssignmentJan 28, 2016
The Los Angeles Kings have assigned forward Kyle Clifford to the Ontario Reign of the American Hockey League for a conditioning assignment, Kings General Manager Dean Lombardi announced today.
The 6-2, 206-pound native of Ayr, Ontario appeared in 26 games earlier this season with the Kings, where he tallied three points (0-3=3) and 28 penalty minutes. He has missed 23 games (since Dec. 8, 2015) with an upper-body injury.
"It’s fun and it’s good to just get back playing, just get in a routine," Clifford told Reign Insider. I know a lot of the guys from camp here and obviously familiar with a few of the guys so it’s good just to be down here and see how they’re doing and it’s going to be fun tomorrow to get my first game back and get going."
Selected in the second-round (35th overall) of the 2009 NHL Entry Draft, Clifford has appeared in 382 career NHL games, collecting 66 points (28-38=66) and 511 penalty minutes.
The Reign wrap up a three-game road trip Friday, January 29 against the San Diego Gulls at 7:05 p.m. at the Valley View Casino Center in San Diego, California.
