Los Angeles Kings goaltenders Stephane Fiset and Jamie Storr, who suffered groin injuries in a 5-5 tie with the Colorado Avalanche on Sunday night, will each miss at least one game.

Goalies Manny Legace and Alexey Volkov have been recalled on an emergency basis and will be in uniform Wednesday night when the Kings face the Florida Panthers in the opener of a five-game road trip.

Fiset, 28, who suffered a right-groin strain midway through the third period against Colorado, is listed as day-to-day and accompanied the Kings to Florida.

Forum: How will the Kings do this season?


Storr, 22 suffered a left-groin strain after replacing Fiset and was placed on the injured reserve list Monday, meaning he will be sidelined for at least one week.

The Kings (2-1-1) recalled the 25-year-old Legace from the Long Beach Ice Dogs of the IHL and the 18-year-old Volkov from the Halifax Mooseheads of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League.
