The LA Kings have activated defenseman Dion Phaneuf from the injured reserve list, Kings Vice President and General Manager Rob Blake announced today.
Phaneuf suffered an upper-body injury during the Kings-Sabres game at Buffalo on December 11 and was placed on the injured reserve list last Saturday (retroactive to December 11). He has missed the club’s last six games.
In 32 games this season, he has one assist and 23 penalty minutes. Earlier this season he played in his 1,000th career regular season game, an NHL milestone.
The Kings, who have won their last four consecutive games, conclude a two-game homestand today at STAPLES Center against the Vegas Golden Knights.
