The Los Angeles Kings have placed defenseman Christian Folin on the injured reserve, the team announced on Tuesday. He suffered an upper-body injury in yesterday's game.
Folin, 26, was signed as a free agent by the Kings last summer. In 144 games played in the NHL with the Kings and the Minnesota Wild, the Swedish defenseman produced 28 points.
Prior to his injury, Folin registered five points, 11 penalty minutes and had a defensive differential of minus one.
