LA Kings Recall Andrew Crescenzi

+

Andrew Crescenzi is a gritty two-way forward who has really excelled in the American Hockey League. He's been in the Los Angeles Kings' organization since he was traded in 2013-14 in a swap for Brandon Kozun. The diminutive Kozun was never going to make it to the NHL while remaining with Los Angeles as he had been passed up on the depth chart by the likes of Tanner Pearson and Tyler Toffoli among others. Since coming over in the trade, Crescenzi has fit right in with Mike Stothers' system and is now leaned upon as a veteran player. In 202 games with Manchester/Ontario, Crescenzi has tallied 22 goals and 34 points. This recall is basically a reward for his hard work. But congrats anyway for making to the show. Wait, wrong sport. I mean the best league in the world.
