Stars' Michael Mersch: Returns to minor league
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mersch was reassigned to AHL Texas on Tuesday.

Mersch's hockey resume includes multiple championships at the collegiate level with the University of Wisconsin and another title with AHL Manchester (now the Ontario Reign) in 2014-15. The American winger -- who signed a two-year, two-way contract with the Stars in July -- will resume his minor-league career having produced 193 points (94 goals, 99 assists) over 277 games.

Stars' Michael Mersch: Receives NHL call-up
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mersch was recalled from AHL Texas on Monday.

Mersch last played in the NHL as a member of the 2015-16 Kings. The 26-year-old has three points in 17 career NHL games. This season, Mersch has been an effective contributor at the minor-league level, putting up 20 points in 29 games with AHL Texas.

Stars' Michael Mersch: Sent to waiver wire
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mersch was waived by the Stars on Saturday, Sean Shapiro of The Athletic reports.

Mersch maintained a 0.70 points-per-game pace in the AHL between the Manchester Monarchs/Ontario Reign from 2013-18, but he's only appeared in 17 games at hockey's highest level, adding one goal and two helpers for the Kings over that span. Mersch inked a two-year, two-way contract with the Stars in July, so it's no surprise that he's bound to start the new season in the minors.

Stars' Michael Mersch: Journeys to Lone Star State
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mersch signed a two-year, two-way deal with the Stars on Sunday.

Mersch is waiting for his NHL breakthrough, as the 25-year-old has 170 points over the last four seasons in the AHL. The University of Wisconsin product has only suited up for 17 NHL games and notched three points in those contests. Expect him to get a shot at the 23-man roster out of camp, but it's more likely he lands with AHL Texas.

Kings' Michael Mersch: Demoted to AHL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mersch was reassigned to AHL Ontario on Thursday, Curtis Zupke of the Los Angeles Times reports.

There was speculation that Mersch could make his season debut following the Marian Gaborik trade to the Senators on Feb. 13, but that didn't come to fruition. Instead, he returns to the franchise's top development affiliate, where he's amassed 33 points (18 goals, 15 assists) for the second consecutive season.

Kings' Michael Mersch: Promoted Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mersch was recalled from AHL Ontario on Wednesday, Curtis Zupke of the Los Angeles Times reports.

After shipping forwards Marian Gaborik and Nick Shore to Ottawa in a trade Tuesday, Los Angeles was in need of reinforcements up front. Recently acquired Nate Thompson has been out since Feb. 5 while dealing with a lower-body injury, and if he's unable to play Thursday in Pittsburgh, or any of the four games on the Kings' upcoming road trip, Mersch will slot into the lineup. The 24-year-old Mersch has put together a solid campaign in the minors thus far, notching 18 goals and 33 points in 45 contests.

Kings' Michael Mersch: Designated for waivers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mersch was waived by Los Angeles on Wednesday, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.

Mersch appeared in 17 outings for the Kings back in 2015-16, but he was stuck in the minors for all of last season. A four-year player at the University of Wisconsin, the 24-year-old has shown flashes of scoring ability and could be in line for some call-ups during the upcoming campaign.

Kings' Michael Mersch: Agrees to one-year deal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mersch inked a one-year, two-way contract worth $650,000 with Los Angeles on Friday.

A knee injury limited Mersch to just 48 minor-league games last year, but that didn't stop him from tallying 16 goals and 17 helpers. The 24-year-old figures to be on the Kings' short list of potential call-ups this season considering he had three straight 30-plus point campaigns in the AHL.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mersch (knee) has overcome his injury.

Mersch made his return to the lineup for AHL Ontario on Wednesday and even pitched in a power-play goal.

Kings' Michael Mersch: Out until at least mid-February
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mersch (knee) is expected to be sidelined until at least mid-to-late February due to a knee injury suffered in a game for AHL Ontario back on Jan. 14, LA Kings Insider reports.

Mersch is one of the team's top prospects, and it appears he will not be seeing any time with the big club this season now that this injury has set him back. He's a top-notch penalty killer who led Ontario in scoring last season, so Mersch has a solid skill set and a good outlook for the future. However, the 24-year-old is only worth fantasy attention in the deepest of long-term dynasty pools at this point.

Kings' Michael Mersch: Sent back to AHL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mersch was sent down to Ontario of the AHL on Monday.

The Kings added a forward (Kris Versteeg) at the deadline and sending Mersch down now enables him to be playoff-eligible for the AHL. He recorded three points (a goal, two assists) in 17 games with the Kings.

Kings' Michael Mersch: Called back up to Kings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mersch was called up by the Kings on Friday, LA Kings Insider reports.

Since getting sent down to the AHL on Jan. 15, Mersch has been on fire with seven goals and 13 assists in 15 games. He'll likely assume a bottom-six role with the parent club, though.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Kings have assigned Mersch to AHL Ontario.

Mersch failed to record a point through six games with the parent club. The Reign play this Saturday, when it's presumed the winger will pick up meaningful minutes with the minor-league club.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire
