Los Angeles, CA (Sports Network) - The Los Angeles Kings have placed right wing Justin Williams on injured reserve because of a broken right leg.

Williams was hurt in the first period of Saturday's game against Phoenix and had to be taken off the ice on a stretcher. He was behind the net when teammate Anze Kopitar and Phoenix defenseman Ed Jovanovski collided and fell on top of him.

In 33 games this season, Williams has eight goals and 16 assists for 24 points.

The Kings have recalled forward Scott Parse from their American Hockey League affiliate in Manchester to fill the roster spot. Parse has played in 27 games for the Kings this season, registering four goals and seven assists.

Los Angeles also loaned center Corey Elkins to Manchester. He has appeared in three games for the Kings and scored his first NHL goal on December 17 at Calgary.
