Los Angeles Kings' Oscar Moller Out Until After All-Star Break

Los Angeles Kings rookie forward Oscar Moller will be out until at least the All-Star break with a broken clavicle.

Moller suffered the injury during the second period of Sweden's game against Russia at the most recent World Junior Hockey Championship.

Moller, who captained the team to a silver medal, was on loan from the Kings for Sweden to use during the under-20 tournament.

This does, however, raise the issue of NHL teams releasing some of its young players to suit up for their countries in the IIHF event.

While some people drew heat for not letting some of their younger stars go to the tournament, surely they will point to this as an example of a detractor.

Moller was eighth in team scoring before he left for the tournament. He has appeared in 30 games for the Kings, recording six goals and seven assists.

A surprise roster addition out of training camp, Moller has been a pleasant surprise to the Kings rebuild this season, and along with the likes of Anze Kopitar, Dustin Brown, and Patrick O'Sullivan, has combined to make the Kings top six a young, dangerous group.
