LOS ANGELES -- The Los Angeles Kings placed defenceman Drew Doughty on the injured reserve list with an upper-body injury on Monday.

The 20-year-old suffered the injury in Wednesday's 4-3 win against Carolina. He has tallied one assist in five contests this season after registering 16 goals and 59 points with a plus-20 rating in 82 games last year.

In a related move, the club recalled defenceman Jake Muzzin from Manchester of the American Hockey League. Muzzin, who was demoted on Saturday, has appeared in six games for the Kings this season and has one helper.
