The Los Angeles Kings say that Justin Williams will miss the rest of the season after he suffered a dislocated shoulder on Sunday.

The injury occurred during the third period of the Kings' shootout victory over the Calgary Flames when the 29-year-old Williams collided with Flames' defenceman Robyn Regehr.

The loss of Williams could be a huge blow to the Kings' playoff chances as he sits second in team scoring with 22 goals and 35 assists in 73 games. The Kings currently sit fifth in the Western Conference with 88 points entering play on Tuesday.

The Kings have recalled Oscar Moller from Manchester of the AHL to take Williams' spot on their roster.
