David Van der Gulik has been sent to the minors.
Van der Gulik was called up because the Kings didn't have enough healthy players to fill a 20-man lineup. The fact that he's being sent down now likely signifies that the Kings are confident one of their injured players will be ready to return on Friday. That means either Anze Kopitar or Trevor Lewis will probably return. Fri, Oct 31, 2014 01:33:00 PM

The Los Angeles Kings were able to summon David Van der Gulik despite their salary cap restraints.

The Kings were in an awkward position on Tuesday as Anze Kopitar was hurt, but they couldn't call up anyone to replace him because they lacked the cap space necessary to do so. That's due in large part to the fact that Slava Voynov is stuck on their roster and still counts against the cap even after the NHL decided to suspend him indefinitely. Los Angeles dressed just 19 players on Tuesday, which triggered a special clause in the CBA that allows a shorthanded team to make an emergency recall. Van der Gulik in particular was chosen in part because his cap hit meets the requirements necessary to be eligible to be recalled under that rule.
