As expected, the Los Angeles Kings have placed Simon Gagne on injured reserve after the veteran suffered a hit to the head during their last game against Phoenix on Monday night.


There is no timetable set for Gagne's return and for the time being, the Kings will go with a 23-man roster and see how that goes. Should they need to call a player up from Manchester, they will do so in due time, if necessary.


In 34 games this season, Gagne has recorded seven goals and ten assists, although he has not scored in his last 17 games.
