Kings skate update

Willie Mitchell’s return likely means that Brad Richardson will go on injured reserve, retroactive to Friday. Richardson is scheduled to be evaluated by doctors today in Los Angeles.

The Kings will go with a second line of Ryan Smyth, Jarret Stoll and Oscar Moller, and a fourth line of Kyle Clifford, Trevor Lewis and John Zeiler, leaving Davis Drewiske, Peter Harrold and Kevin Westgarth as the healthy scratches. Jonathan Quick will start in goal.

Terry Murray said Marco Sturm might join the Kings tomorrow in St. Louis if he is medically cleared. Sturm’s evaluation isn’t even scheduled to start until 10 a.m. Pacific time, so don’t expect any word soon. Sturm will wear No. 10 with the Kings. More notes and quotes to come…
