La Kings Assign Martin Jones To Manchester

LOS ANGELES - The Los Angeles Kings have assigned goaltender Martin Jones to the Manchester Monarchs of the American Hockey League, Kings President/General Manager Dean Lombardi announced today.

Jones, 23, made his NHL debut on December 3 versus Anaheim and stopped 26 shots for his first victory.  He followed that performance with consecutive shutouts on December 7 against the New York Islanders (16 saves) and December 10 versus the Montreal Canadiens (31 saves). In total, Jones won his first eight NHL games/starts and is the second goaltender in League history to win his first eight games (Bob Froese of the 1982-83 Flyers) and the first netminder to start and allow two or fewer goals in each of his first eight games since 1938-39 (Frank Brimsek/12-game streak).

Overall Jones is 8-3-0 with a 1.41 goals-against average, a .950 save percentage and three shutouts in 11 appearances this season.  With the Monarchs this season he is 9-2-2 with a 2.24 goals-against average and a .927 save percentage.
