The Ontario Reign, proud AHL affiliate of the NHL’s LA Kings, announced today that defenseman Jacob Moverare has been recalled by the LA Kings.
Moverare, 24, will join the team in Nashville, where they are preparing for a game tonight against the Predators. The native of Ostersund, Sweden has played in two games for the Reign to begin the AHL season.
Last season, the 6-3, 210-pound defenseman skated in 19 games with the Kings after making his NHL debut on Jan. 6 against the Nashville Predators. He finished with two points (0-2=2), a plus-3 rating, and an average of 16:20 time-on-ice, which ranked fourth-most among Kings rookie blueliners.
In 30 games with the Reign, Moverare posted 10 points (3-7=10) and a plus-6 rating. Originally drafted by the Kings in the fourth round (112th overall) of the 2016 NHL Draft, Moverare has skated in parts of three seasons (2020-22) with the Reign, appearing in 58 games and recording 25 points (4-21=25).
