Linden Vey has been recalled from the Manchester Monarchs. He had been recalled on April 3 and had met the team in the Bay Area, though when Drew Doughty suffered an upper-body injury in the loss at San Jose that night, salary cap complications meant that he wouldn’t be able be able to remain on the active roster at the same time as Andrew Campbell, who was subsequently summoned from Manchester as an injury replacement.
The salary cap does not apply to postseason play, and there will be more reinforcements coming from Manchester – a.k.a. the Black Aces – should the Kings’ season outlast the Monarchs.
The 22-year-old Vey recorded five assists in 18 regular season games for Los Angeles and 48 points (14-34=48) in 43 games with Manchester.
He was selected by the Kings in the fourth round, 96th overall, in the 2009 NHL Draft.
