ONTARIO, CA - The Los Angeles Kings, NHL affiliate of the Ontario Reign, have activated forward Gabriel Vilardi from the injured/non-roster list and assigned him to Ontario.

Vilardi, who was selected by the Kings in the first-round (11th overall) of the 2017 NHL Draft, made his professional debut last season with the Reign. The 20-year old (born August 16, 1999) recorded an assist (0-1=1) in four games.
