Jones recalled; Berube to Manchester

The Los Angeles Kings made one expected roster move in advance of Monday’s practice as they recalled goaltender Martin Jones from Manchester while assigning J.F. Berube back to the Kings’ American Hockey League affiliate. Because of CBA stipulations, Berube, who had been recalled on February 7 and earned a regular NHL paycheck as he backstopped the Kings when practices resumed, was unable to be assigned to Manchester until today.

Jones, who is 8-4-0 with a 1.71 goals-against average, .940 save percentage and three shutouts with Los Angeles, was 5-1-1 with a 2.24 GAA and .917 Sv% in his seven February AHL games.

The Kings, who were scheduled to take the ice for practice at 10:30 a.m., began to filter onto the ice surface shortly after 11:00.
