Toffoli up?

Top Los Angeles prospect Tyler Toffoli, who ranks second in the American Hockey League with 28 goals, may be on his way up to Los Angeles, per several Twitter reports.

The Kings have a roster spot open and would not have to clear room for Toffoli’s arrival. While the team suffered a scare during a heavy hit on Mike Richards in the second period last night, a Toffoli call-up could also simply be a reflection of the 20-year old’s recent play in Manchester and the natural progression associated with the former second-round pick.

UPDATE, 2:00 PM: The team’s official announcement should be coming shortly.

LA Kings Insider will have more updates on this story, should it continue to develop.
