Appears as thought Toffoli will make his debut tonight. Kings extra skaters at the morning skate were Nolan, Richardson, and Drewiskie.
Toffoli has 28 goals and 48 points in 55 games for Manchester (AHL) this season.

The Los Angeles Kings officially recalled top prospect Tyler Toffoli from the Manchester Monarchs on Sunday afternoon. Toffoli, 20, ranks second in the American Hockey League with 28 goals scored and second on the Monarchs with 48 points (28-20=48; +20). The 28 goals lead all rookie skaters.
Los Angeles’ second round draft pick in 2010, Toffoli broke out with a 107-point campaign as an 18-year old with the Ottawa 67’s in 2010-11, tying for the Ontario Hockey League scoring lead while leading the league in goals scored with 57. He followed that up with a 100-point season (52-48=100) in 2011-12, leading the league in goals for the second straight year with 52.

Assigned to Manchester of the American Hockey League were forwards Andy Andreoff, Ray Kaunisto, Brandon Kozun and Linden Vey, defensemen Nicolas Deslauriers, David Kolomatis and Patrick Mullen and goalie Martin Jones. Tyler Toffoli was re-assigned to his junior team.
No immediate fantasy value in the CHL.
Toffoli isn’t expected to make the Kings’ roster out of camp — he has one more season of junior eligibility, and skating and conditioning still need some improvement — but Toffoli did well for himself in the Kings’ 3-2 victory over the Coyotes last night, according to Terry Murray…
Toffoli should be returned to Juniors shortly. The right wing dominated the OHL last season, posting 57 goals and 108 points with the Ottawa 67s. Keep an eye out for him in a few years.
