Kings’ Williams on IR with broken leg

The Los Angeles Kings have placed Justin Williams on injured

reserve after the veteran right wing broke his leg.

Williams was hurt in the Kings’ loss at Phoenix on Saturday

night. He could be out for three months, coach Terry Murray

says.

Williams has 24 points in 22 games this season on the Kings’ top

line, which was back together for just two shifts in Phoenix when

Ryan Smyth returned from a six-week absence because of an

upper-body injury.

The injury-plagued Kings also got Wayne Simmonds back while

losing center Jarret Stoll to a hurt groin.

Los Angeles recalled left wing Scott Parse from its AHL

affiliate and loaned Corey Elkins to the minor-league club.
