Campbell to Kings; Bodnarchuk to Manchester

The Kings recalled 6’4, 206 pound defenseman Andrew Campbell from AHL-Manchester on Wednesday, assigning defenseman Andrew Bodnarchuk to Manchester.

Campbell had six assists in 27 games for the Monarchs, including a plus-11 rating that led Manchester defensemen. He was a third round draft pick by Los Angeles in 2008 and is a veteran of 325 AHL games.

Campbell was a teammate of Jake Muzzin’s with the OHL’s Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds, where he also played alongside Wayne Simmonds, Jiri Tlusty and Andrew Desjardins. He provides a sizeable, left-shooting option on the Kings’ blueline.

Bodnarchuk, who appeared in five games with Boston in 2009-10, did not appear in a game with the Kings.
