Amadio up; on the road again - LA Kings Insider

Good morning from LAX on what should be a beautiful day to fly north. There are one-off road games as part of back-to-back sets, but this is the last actual “road trip” of 2018-19, and as is very familiar this time of year, we travel to Western Canada to make the final rounds across the division. Apart from the Chicago game next Saturday, it’s all Pacific games from here on out.

News! Brendan Leipsic (lower-body) isn’t making the trip, Willie Desjardins confirmed today. He didn’t skate today, per Desjardins. Michael Amadio was recalled and provides another option at center should the Kings decide to move the similarly versatile Trevor Lewis to wing at any point on this trip. Amadio has four goals and eight points in 37 games with Los Angeles and 22 points in 24 games with Ontario.

More to come on WUWTK, which should go up an hour or so into our flight. Excited to get back on the road with you, Insiders.
