LOS ANGELES -- Gradually, the Los Angeles Kings' injury ward is becoming less crowded, a welcome development heading into a four-game trip that starts Tuesday in Montreal.
Right wing Trevor Lewis and defenseman Matt Greene will accompany the team on the road, and Greene, who has been out because of an undisclosed upper-body injury, could return first.
"Trevor is still a ways away and Greener could be available," coach Darryl Sutter said Sunday.
Greene has not played since Nov. 2 and Lewis (lower-body injury) last played against New Jersey on Nov. 21.
In anticipation of Greene's return, defenseman Jeff Schultz was reassigned to Manchester (N.H.) of the American Hockey League. Schultz was with the Kings as insurance.
