Rempal inked a one-year, two-way deal with Carolina on Friday.
Rempal saw action in seven NHL games back in 2018-19 with the Kings but was unable to crack the big club's lineup last season. With AHL Ontario, the 25-year-old winger garnered four goals and 17 helpers in 56 contests. If he can continue to produce at the minor-league level, Rempal could crack the Hurricanes' lineup at some point in 2020-21.
Rempal accepted his qualifying offer for the 2019-20 campaign on Monday.
The 23-year-old winger made both his AHL and NHL debuts last season, notching 40 points with AHL Ontario and going scoreless in seven contests with Los Angeles. Rempal will likely see time in both leagues again this season.
Rempal was given a qualifying offer from the Kings on Sunday, Curtis Zupke of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Rempal is set to earn $832,500 on a two-way deal that would allow him to play in both the NHL and AHL next season. The 23-year-old has played seven games in his career for the Kings, collecting no points while averaging 8:44 of ice time. In order to prevent himself from spending time in the minors, the 23-year-old might be willing to take less money on a one-way contract.
The Kings reassigned Rempal to AHL Ontario on Tuesday.
Rempal only averaged 5:42 of ice time per contest during his four-game stay with the big club, so this move doesn't come as a surprise. The 23-year-old winger will return to a prominent role with Ontario, where he's racked up eight goals and 20 points in 14 appearances this season.
Rempal was recalled from AHL Ontario on Monday, Curtis Zupke of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Rempal has been tearing it up in the minors with eight goals and 11 helpers in 14 outings. The 23-year-old's numbers haven't been quite as impressive with the Kings, as he is pointless in his three appearances and has put just two shots on net. The move is likely in reaction to Carl Hagelin (knee) being placed on injured reserve.
The Kings assigned Rempal to AHL Ontario on Friday.
Rempal has gone scoreless in three appearances with the big club this season, and he was a healthy scratch for Thursday's game against the Wild, so this move doesn't come as much of a surprise. The 23-year-old winger will return to a prominent role in the minors, where he's already racked up four goals and eight points in four games this campaign.
The Kings recalled Rempal from AHL Ontario on Wednesday.
After going undrafted, Rempal received an entry-level contract from the Kings in March following an impressive sophomore campaign with Clarkson University. Eight quick points in the AHL -- four goals and four assists -- put the 23-year-old on the fast track to the NHL, where he will test his hand for the first time. He skated on the fourth line during practice Wednesday, suggesting Rempal could make his NHL debut Thursday against the Islanders.
