Jarret Stoll injury: Kings lose center to unspecified injury

The Kings haven't disclosed any information about Stoll's status.

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

The Los Angeles Kings' depth is being tested yet again after center Jarret Stoll suffered an undisclosed injury on Friday night.

Stoll played just two shifts during the second period against the Nashville Predators before heading to the locker room. He didn't return, and Lisa Dillman of the L.A. Times reports the Kings aren't disclosing any information about the injury. Stoll will be reevaluated later on Sunday.

The injury comes at a bad time for the Kings, who are suddenly struggling to find warm bodies to put on the ice. Los Angeles recently placed star center Jeff Carter on injured reserve retroactive to October 30 with a lower-body injury. They also lost defenseman Keaton Ellerby to the Winnipeg Jets when he was claimed on waivers on Saturday. The Kings have called up young guns Tyler Toffoli and Linden Vey from the AHL to fill roster spots for the forseeable future. It's likely we'll know more about the severity of Stoll's injury later on Saturday.
