Forbort was reassigned to AHL Ontario on Wednesday, Helene Elliott of the LA Times reports. The Kings demoted Forbort to make room for Luke Schenn on the team's 23-man roster, who they acquired from Philadelphia via trade Wednesday. Given LA's new depth at defense, Forbort may not be back with the big club for quite some time. The 23-year-old blueliner has tallied two points (one goal, one assist) in 14 games with the Kings this season.
Forbort has been recalled by the Kings, LA Kings Insider reports. Forbort will provide some more depth along the blue line for the Kings, but there's no indication that he'll draw into the lineup as Christian Erhoff (upper body) was present at practice Sunday as well. He saw another stint with the Kings earlier in the season, going without a point while recording two shots on goal in two games with the club.
Forbort has been reassigned to AHL Ontario. The native of Duluth, Minnesota made two appearances with the parent club before heading to the minors, where he'll presumably pick up plenty of minutes to further his development. The young defenseman is known for his skating ability and carries upside in the long-term as the 15th overall selection in the 2010 NHL Entry Draft.
Forbort (illness) will not play in Friday's game against the Hurricanes, Rich Hammond of the Orange County Register reports. Forbort was able to take part in Friday's morning skate, but he will be held out of the lineup for the second night in a row. With Forbort sidelined Jamie McBain will suit up on the defensive end for the Kings.
Forbort was scratched from the lineup Thursday with an illness, Lisa Dillman of the Los Angeles Times reports. Forbort took part in the optional morning skate, but must have felt worse as the day wore on. As a result, Jamie McBain will replace him in the lineup Thursday, likely pairing with Christian Ehrhoff in his place. His next chance to rejoin the lineup swill come Friday against the Hurricanes.
