The LA Kings have assigned forward Michael Amadio to the Ontario Reign (AHL), Kings Vice President and General Manager Rob Blake announced today.
The 22-year-old (born May 13, 1996) is a 6-1, 204-pound native of Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario who has played in 13 games this season with the Kings, tallying one goal (1-0=1) and four penalty minutes.
The Kings open a three-game road trip tonight against the Colorado Avalanche at 7:30 p.m. The game will be broadcast on FOX Sports West, the FOX Sports App and the LA Kings Audio Network on iHeartRadio.

The Kings have a new coach in Willie Desjardins — who succeeds John Stevens — and its apparent that the new bench boss thinks Amadio would benefit from additional seasoning in the minors. The stats tell the tale in that regard, as LAs 2014 third-round (90th overall) pick has just one goal representing his point total in conjunction with a minus-7 rating through 13 games at the top level this season.
