SAN JOSE, Calif. -- The Los Angeles Kings placed goalie Roman Cechmanek on the injured list Friday because of a hip injury.

The move is retroactive to Sunday.

The Kings recalled goalie Milan Hnilicka from Manchester of the AHL along with defenseman Bryan Muir and right wing John Tripp.

Cechmanek, who has appeared in 25 games and has a 12-10-1 record, originally bruised his hip during the Kings' game at Nashville on Dec. 11. He missed three games before reaggravating the hip against the Colorado on Saturday.
