Moverare, 23, has been called up to the Kings multiple times this season but has yet to make his NHL debut. He has three goals and eight points through 19 games with the Ontario Reign in the American Hockey League. If Los Angeles loses more players due to COVID-19, we could very well see Moverare come into the lineup.
Frk, 28, has played in a veteran role with the Reign this season, with 13 goals and 26 points through 21 games played. He’s known for having one of the hardest shots in North American professional hockey and has the potential to be a sneaky good add to the LA Kings’ power play if he ever gets the chance.
This comes just one day after the NHL announced that they were bringing the taxi squads from last season back. It’ll be interesting to see teams utilize them again this season.
