The Kings assigned Grundstrom to AHL Ontario on Wednesday, Lisa Dillman of The Athletic reports.
Grundstrom has been a healthy scratch for three of L.A.'s last six games and has only averaged 10:57 of ice time in the contests he's appeared in, so this move doesn't come as a surprise. The 21-year-old rookie will return to a prominent role with Ontario, where he's racked up five goals and seven points in four appearances this season.
Grundstrom registered an assist, three shots on goal, two PIM and a plus-2 rating in Thursday's 5-1 win over the Oilers.
Grundstrom's helper came on Jeff Carter's goal in the dying seconds of the first period. The Swedish winger has four assists in seven appearances this season, but he skated a season-low 9:08 Thursday. He's not likely to be a factor in fantasy in 2019-20, often serving as a healthy scratch.
L.A. recalled Grundstrom from AHL Ontario on Tuesday.
The Kings have lost three straight games and have totaled just four goals over that span, so they're clearly hoping Grundstrom will be able to provide a spark up front. The 21-year-old Swede has been highly effective early on in the minors this season, racking up five goals and seven points through his first four contests.
The Kings assigned Grundstrom to AHL Ontario on Friday.
Grundstrom has been a healthy scratch for six of L.A.'s first seven games, so he'll head to the minors to receive regular playing time. The 21-year-old Swede has the potential to develop into a solid bottom-six contributor, but he won't have any fantasy value in 2019-20.
Grundstrom (concussion) will play on the Kings' top line during Tuesday's preseason matchup with Arizona, Jon Rosen of Fox Sports West reports.
Grundstrom dealt with concussion-like symptoms following LA's 2018-19 season finale, but he's clearly now back to 100 percent and ready to secure a spot on the big club's Opening Night roster. The 21-year-old performed admirably after being traded to the Kings in January as part of the deal that sent Jake Muzzin to Toronto, notching five goals and six points in 15 appearances, and will likely skate in a middle-six role while seeing time on one of LA's power-play units on a nightly basis in 2019-20.
General Manager Rob Blake said Monday that Grundstrom is dealing with concussion-like symptoms following Saturday's game against Vegas, Curtis Zupke of the Los Angeles Times reports.
The severity of the head injury isn't known, but with concussions, teams and players usually take a cautious approach. The 21-year-old filled in admirably for the Kings in 15 games, accumulating five goals and six points in that span. The hope is that the rookie will take the offseason to get healthy, and be ready to go for the 2019-20 campaign.
Grundstrom scored a goal on six shots and added four hits in Friday's 5-2 loss to the Ducks.
The six shots were a season high for Grundstrom, and he now has five goals in 14 games in his rookie year. He's also at 37 hits this season, as the Swedish winger has shown a strong physical side to his game.
Grundstrom scored a goal on three shots and added four hits in Saturday's 4-3 shootout win over the Ducks.
The second-round pick from 2016 now has three goals and 17 hits in seven games since his call-up from AHL Ontario. He was part of the return from Toronto in the Jake Muzzin deal in January. Grundstrom's not a factor in fantasy this year despite his second-line deployment, but he's shown a scoring touch that makes him an interesting stash for dynasty owners.
Grundstrom scored the game-winner Sunday night against the Ducks, giving him goals in each of his first two games with the Kings, Curtis Zupke of The Los Angeles Times reports.
Grundstrom has been flying in his first two games, and has paired well with Adrian Kempe. He's likely to receive copious ice time down the stretch with the Kings.
Grundstrom was brought up to the NHL and is expected to play Saturday against Arizona, Jon Rosen of Fox Sports West reports
Grundstrom never got a shot in Toronto because of how deep the Maple Leafs were, but with the Kings rebuilding, he's now got a chance to make a mark in his NHL debut. He's scored 10 points in 13 games with AHL Ontario, and he looks like a nice piece to have in dynasty leagues.
Grundstrom was sent to the Kings from the Maple Leafs along with Sean Durzi and a 2019 first-round pick in exchange for Jake Muzzin on Tuesday.
Grundstrom, a 2016 second-round selection, has 13 goals and 29 points in 42 games with AHL Toronto this season. The upcoming first-round pick was the biggest piece of the package, but the 21-year-old Grundstrom could see some time at the NHL level later this season.
Grundstrom was assigned to the AHL Marlies on Sunday.
The Leafs are just too deep up front for Grundstrom to make the team. He delivered 17 goals and seven assists in 35 games with Frolunda in the Swedish League in 2017-18. A trip around the AHL will help him get accustomed to the smaller North American ice.
Grundstrom scored the Leafs' only goal in Saturday's 5-1 loss to the Red Wings.
The Leafs have just a couple spots open at forward and it remains to be seen if Grundstrom has shown enough to earn one. The goal was a gimme on a 2-on-0 break, but a goal is a goal. The story will always get bigger with time.
Grunstrom has 12 points in 19 AHL playoff games and is tied for fourth in scoring on the Toronto Marlies.
Grunstrom had scored 17 goals (with seven assists) in 35 games for Frolunda before coming to the Marlies late in the season. There is no assurance he will be able to earn a spot with the Leafs for 2018-19, but the six-foot, 194-pound forward is stating his case as the Marlies are one game from the Calder Cup championship.
Grundstrom has been assigned to Frolunda of the Swedish League, reports the Toronto Sun.
He had a strong camp, but the Leafs didn't have the option of sending Grundstrom down to the AHL to grow his game.
Grundstrom signed a three-year, entry-level contract with the Maple Leafs on Friday.
Grundstrom spent the 2016-17 campaign playing for the SHL's Frolunda HC, where he posted 14 goals and six assists in 45 games. His offensive stats certainly don't jump off the page, but that's mainly because he's known for his gritty play, which he heavily improved on this past season as evidenced by his six penalty minutes and plus-6 rating. He's not likely to be a fantasy stud if he cracks the Leafs' roster, but he could be very valuable on a checking line and the penalty kill.
