Los Angeles Kings recall high-scoring prospect Tyler Toffoli for possible NHL debut

The Los Angeles Kings recalled center Tyler Toffoli from Manchester of the AHL on Sunday.

Toffoli could make his NHL debut Monday night for the defending Stanley Cup champions.

Toffoli has 48 points and a plus-20 rating in 55 games this season with Manchester, emerging as one of the Kings' top prospects. He is the AHL's second-leading goal scorer, netting 28 in his rookie season.

The 20-year-old Toffoli, who was a second-round draft choice, is available to play for the Kings against Calgary on Monday.

Los Angeles has won eight of 10 to move into fourth place in the Western Conference.
