Update on Toffoli’s status
For those who have asked about the short-term destination of Kings prospect Tyler Toffoli, there’s a partial answer. The Kings are talking to Toffoli about a contract, and the current plan is to have him play for the Manchester Monarchs for the rest of the American Hockey League season. Toffoli, a second-round draft pick last year, led the Ontario Hockey League with 108 points (57 goals, 51 assists) in 68 regular-season games for the Ottawa 67s, but the 67s were swept in the first round of the OHL playoffs. Toffoli had three goals and five assists in the four playoff games. The Monarchs are battling for first place in their division and have three games remaining in the regular season.
