The Kings recalled Anderson-Dolan from AHL Ontario to their active roster Thursday, Jack Harris of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Thursday marked the first time that the 21-year-old was added to the active roster this season, as he went pointless across five games at the NHL level last year. Anderson-Dolan could see action in Thursday's game against the Avalanche, replacing Michael Amadio in the process.
The Kings reassigned Anderson-Dolan to AHL Ontario on Sunday, Jack Harris of the Los Angeles Times reports.
The 20-year-old forward has seen action in just four games with the big club this year, going pointless while averaging 10:16 of ice time. Anderson-Dolan will get more ice time with the Kings heading into the All-Star break. He has 19 points in 36 AHL games this campaign.
The Kings recalled Anderson-Dolan from AHL Ontario on Thursday.
Anderson-Dolan has been decent in the minors this season, notching 19 points in 36 games. The 2017 second-round pick could make his season debut with the Kings as soon as Thursday against the Golden Knights.
Anderson-Dolan scored twice, including the overtime winner, in WHL Spokane's 6-5 win over Kelowna on Wednesday.
Following a bit of a dry spell, JAD now has goals in nine straight games. While his numbers for the season aren't overwhelming (20 goals, 41 points in 31 games), Anderson-Dolan has slowly found his game after missing more than two months earlier in the season due to wrist surgery. With the aging Kings hoping to add more youth and speed to their lineup next year, JAD stands a great chance of carving out a full-time role in Los Angeles as a 20-year-old.
Anderson-Dolan (wrist) was a full participant in Team Canada's practice Monday, indicating he's clear of his injury and ready to play, Mark Masters of TSN reports.
This won't have any impact on the Kings this season. Anderson-Dolan spent five games with the Kings this year before they decided it was best for him to head back to juniors. However, the fact the 19-year-old healed from his wrist injury this swiftly, and will get a chance to play with Team Canada and develop as a player, is a positive sign for his future.
Anderson-Dolan (wrist) -- who is at Canada's World Junior Championship selection camp -- has been cleared to return to practice, Bob McKenzie of TSN reports.
Anderson-Dolan still doesn't have the green light to absorb contact, but he appears to be heading in the right direction. The Calgary native could be ready in time for the 2019 World Junior Championship at the end of December, after which he will rejoin WHL Spokane for the remainder of the season.
Anderson-Dolan (wrist) is preparing to have surgery in Los Angeles and will miss six to eight weeks of action, Bob McKenzie of TSN reports.
Anderson-Dolan (wrist) is one of LA's more impressive prospects and prior to going down with an injury, the 19-year-old had recorded two goals in as many games as a member of the Spokane Chiefs in the WHL. While his junior status renders him ineligible for NHL action in 2018-19, Anderson-Dolan, the 41st pick in 2017 was hoping to play for Team Canada in the upcoming IIHF World Junior Championships. However, this injury could prevent him from doing that.
Anderson-Dolan is likely to be sent back to WHL Spokane, his junior team, Jon Rosen of Fox Sports West reports.
Anderson-Dolan has one point in five contests this season with Los Angeles, but the Kings appear to have decided there's no need to rush him when he can play another season of juniors. He probably won't be contributing to fantasy rosters again this season, but dynasty players might want to keep him around, as he'll likely be a solid contributor for the Kings sooner rather than later.
Anderson-Dolan got 7:26 of ice time Sunday in a 4-2 win over the Red Wings.
This was his first taste of NHL action in his career at just under a month past his 19th birthday. Clearly, the Kings are high on his abilities to have him skating at the NHL level so soon, and he's worth grabbing in dynasty leagues if possible. In redraft leagues, he's likely still a ways away from being a reliable contributor, but he's worth keeping an eye on in case he moves up the timetable.
Anderson-Dolan secured a three-year, entry-level deal with Los Angeles on Monday.
Anderson-Dolan impressed last year with WHL Spokane, as he racked up 76 points in 72 outings for the Chiefs. The 18-year-old will likely spend at least the 2017-18 campaign in juniors, but could be worth taking a look at in deeper keeper formats given his upside.
