LA Kings Change Up Roster

The Los Angeles Kings have activated goaltender Mathieu
Garon from the injured reserve and assigned goaltender Yutaka Fukufuji
to the Reading Royals of the ECHL, Kings President/General Manager Dean
Lombardi announced today.

Garon, 29, has a record of 8-7-3, a goals-against-average of 2.80, a
save-percentage of .904 and two shutouts in 20 appearances with the
Kings this season.  The Kings acquired the 6-2, 192-pound native of
Chandler, Quebec, who missed nine games with his injury, from Montreal
with a third-round choice (Paul Baier) in the 2004 NHL Entry Draft for
Radek Bonk and goaltender Cristobal Huet on June 26, 2004.  Originally
selected by Montreal in the second-round (44th overall) in the 1996 NHL
Entry Draft, Garon has a record of 55-53-9 (3 ties), a
goals-against-average of 2.91, a save-percentage of .902 and 10 shutouts
in 126 career NHL appearances with the Kings and Montreal.

Fukufuji, 24, has a record of 0-3-0, a goals-against-average of 4.38 and
a save-percentage of .837 in four games with the Kings this season.  In
addition, the 6-1, 180-pound native of Kushiro, Japan, and the first
player born and trained in Japan to ever play in an NHL game (Kings at
St. Louis on January 13, 2007), has a record of 2-0-0, a
goals-against-average of 1.30, a save-percentage of .954 and no shutouts
in three games with the Manchester Monarchs this season (AHL) and a
record of 3-3-0, a goals-against-average of 3.19 and a save-percentage
of .898 in 10 appearances with the Royals this season.  The Kings
originally selected Fukufuji in the eighth-round (238th overall) in the
2004 NHL Entry Draft.
