Earlier this month, the Los Angeles Kings made the wise decision to call up 2010 second round pick Tyler Toffoli from the AHL. What they have done sincethen makes less sense, as it took three games for Toffoli to get a chance to play, and the Kings sat him out of two games last week before letting him play again Monday against the Chicago Blackhawks. Despite being with the Kings since Mar. 10, Toffoli has only played in four games. He has scored goals in two of those games and has three points. With the Kings struggling to score some nights, including the two games last week that Toffoli watched from the press box, there’s no reason he shouldn’t be playing every night.
