It has been two months since Kings winger Carl Grundstrom was able to see game action. That’s about to change as the team announced today (Twitter link) that they’ve assigned Grundstrom to AHL Ontario on an LTI Conditioning Loan.

Grundstrom has been working his way back from a lower-body injury sustained back on February 13th against Buffalo, one that landed him on LTIR two days later. He’s the second Kings forward to be sent down on one of these loans this week as Alex Turcotte was sent to the Reign back on Wednesday.

The 26-year-old has played in 50 games with Los Angeles this season, notching eight goals and four assists. Grundstrom has also chipped in with 115 hits while logging a little under 11 minutes a night. That’s not a great return on a $1.3MM price tag and Grundstrom will be RFA-eligible for the final time this summer while having arbitration rights. With the cap situation the Kings have, Grundstrom could be a candidate to be moved out if they want to open up a little more cap room.

LTI conditioning assignments can last for a maximum of three games and six days although Los Angeles can ask for a one-time two-game extension if it’s determined that Grundstrom needs a bit more game action. Either way, it appears that the Kings will have the gritty winger available to them when the playoffs get underway next week barring a setback while on assignment.
