Schultz will be reassigned to AHL Manchester prior to the Kings' game Wednesday against the Sharks, Jon Rosen of LA Kings Insider reports.

Schultz was scheduled to be a healthy scratch for the match, so the Kings didn't bother keeping him around any longer with the All-Star break looming after. The blueliner appeared in nine games for the Kings, recording one assist and four PIM. With Robyn Regehr (hand) now back in the fold for L.A., there probably won't be a pressing need for the team to bring Schultz back after the break.

Schultz was recalled from AHL Manchester on Friday, Jon Rosen of LA Kings Insider reports.

The Kings promoted Schultz in the wake of the hand injury suffered by Robyn Regehr on Thursday, which will sideline him for two-to-three weeks. Jamie McBain is expected to assume a regular spot in the Kings' lineup during that time, while Schultz figures to serve primarily as the team's seventh blueliner.

Schultz cleared waivers and will be sent down to the team's AHL affiliate.

Schultz figures to get some time with the bug club if and when injuries hit the Kings' blue line but he'll start the season in the AHL.

Jeff Schultz's two-year deal with the Kings is worth $1.7 million.

It's a one-way deal, although so was Schultz's last contract and that didn't stop Los Angeles from burying him in the minors for most of the 2013-14 campaign. At best, Schultz will be a seventh defenseman with the Kings at the start of the season.

The Kings have re-signed defenseman Jeff Schultz to a two-year contract.

Schultz got some action with the Kings due to injuries in the postseason, but he spent the better part of the year with Manchester of the AHL. He carries no fantasy value and is nothing more than a depth player for Los Angeles.

Coach Darryl Sutter has been pleased with the play of defenseman Jeff Schultz.

Schultz spent most of the regular season with Manchester of the AHL but was pressed into duty in the playoffs with injuries to both Willie Mitchell and Robyn Regehr. Mitchell may be close to returning but the play of Schultz defensively should keep him in the lineup for now.

Jeff Schultz is expected to replace the injured Robyn Regehr on the Los Angeles blueline Monday.

Schultz spent most of the season in the AHL playing for Manchester. "He just said, 'Just go out there and play,'" Schultz said of coach Darryl Sutter, who had a chat with him on Sunday. "It's hard to replace a guy like Robyn, but I feel like I'm capable of doing a similar job of what he can do." Schultz had two goals and 13 points in 67 games with Manchester so do not expect anything out of him offensively in the playoffs.

The Los Angeles Kings have summoned Jeff Schultz.

Schultz isn't expected to play in Game 7. It's believed he was called up as an insurance policy, because the Kings are already without defenseman Willie Mitchell.
