Athanasiou (undisclosed) was placed on injured reserve retroactive to Sept. 25 on Tuesday.

The Kings have yet to release a timetable for Athanasiou's recovery, but he'll be eligible to return whenever he's deemed fit to play. The 27-year-old forward, who picked up 10 goals and 23 points in 47 games last campaign, will likely slot into a middle-six role once he's given the green light to make his season debut.
