Crescenzi inked a contract with HC Bolzano (EBEL) on Thursday.
Crescenzi will be making his first foray into European hockey, having played exclusively in North America. Last year, the center earned two games with the Kings, in which he averaged a mere 7:52 of ice time. With no NHL deal forthcoming, the 26-year-old will look to continue his professional career abroad.
Crescenzi was reassigned to AHL Ontario on Sunday.
The big-bodied forward featured in two games during his recall, going scoreless and shotless, though he did rack up four hits. Crescenzi will likely return to the Kings at another point in the season, but he won't be worth fantasy consideration due to the fact that he's more of a physical-type player rather than a scorer.
Crescenzi was recalled from AHL Ontario on Tuesday.
Crescenzi receives his first call-up of the year and could draw into his first career NHL contest as soon as Tuesday night against the Canucks. The 25-year-old is mostly known for his physicality rather than scoring, as his 13 penalty minutes in 11 games with the Reign this season will attest, so he's probably off the fantasy radar for most formats.
Crescenzi was placed on waivers by the Kings on Wednesday, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.
Crescenzi was a long shot to make the Kings' roster to begin with, considering that he's more of a bottom-six role player than a scoring option. The center is still looking to make his NHL debut after spending the past six seasons grinding away in the AHL, and this news means he'll have to keep waiting.
Crescenzi penned a one-year, two-way contract with Los Angeles on Friday.
Crescenzi garnered seven goals and eight helpers last season while playing for AHL Ontario. The center's numbers don't jump off the page, which is why he figures to spend the bulk of the 2017-18 campaign in the minors.
Crescenzi signed a one-year deal with the Kings on Saturday, Elliott Teaford of the Southern California News Group reports.
Crescenzi appeared in 67 games with AHL Ontario last season, notching 21 points (five goals, 16 assists) and 56 PIM over that span. The 6-foot-4 forward will once again spend the majority of the 2016-17 campaign in the minors.
