Petersen, 27, has struggled this season; with a 5-5-1 record paired with a .893 save percentage, he’s fallen behind Jonathan Quick in the team’s depth chart in goal.
Petersen being placed on the list marks the second player on the team currently on the list and 91st leaguewide. He joins Drew Doughty as the Kings’ ‘representatives.’
Ingham, 21, has spent most of this season in the ECHL with the Greenville Swamp Rabbits, going 5-3-1 with a .894 save percentage. He was selected 175th overall by the Kings in 2018.
As of right now, tonight’s game against the Carolina Hurricanes is still on, but that could quickly change with more cancellations.
