Marian Gaborik (foot) has been officially placed on the injured reserve list.
That was to be expected as Gaborik is out until mid-to-late November due to an injury he sustained during the World Cup. Unfortunately injuries are an all too common problem for Gaborik so while we hope he'll bounce back and play uninterrupted for the rest of the 2016-17 campaign following his recovery, history makes us skeptical.

Marian Gaborik was seen at the Kings training camp in a walking boot with crutches.

Gaborik is expected to miss around two months after suffering a broken right foot at the World Cup a week ago. He should be back in the Kings lineup in late November and that's not good news for the veteran who had only 22 points last season in 54 contests. At age 34, the best years of Gaborik's career are behind him but look for the Slovak to at least beat last season's totals despite the broken foot.

Marian Gaborik will miss eight weeks due to his foot injury.

In other words, Gaborik's not going to just miss the start of the regular season, but a significant portion of it. The Kings were hoping that he'd bounce back from his 22-point 2015-16 campaign and for a time it looked like the World Cup might serve as a good starting point on that journey. Unfortunately this injury has derailed that and while he might still be effective once he's healthy, there's a real chance that he might not be worth owning in standard leagues this season.

Marian Gaborik suffered a foot injury while representing Team Europe.

Gaborik is done for the rest of the World Cup and will probably miss the start of the regular season as well. He had two goals in four World Cup games. Injuries have been a big issue for Gaborik throughout his career. It used to be that he was at least very effective when healthy, but in 2015-16 he was limited to 12 goals and 22 points in 54 contests.

Marian Gaborik scored his second goal of the world Cup during Team Europe's 3-2 semi-final victory over Team Sweden.

Gaborik created the goal all on his own, scoring from a sharp angle near the goal line to surprise Henrik Lundqvist. He collected four shots in nearly 18 minutes of work in the game. He has two goals and points in the tournament.

Especially with Milan Lucic gone, the Los Angeles Kings need Marian Gaborik to bounce back this season.

"We’re going to need guys in our lineup to raise their expectations and elevate their game in terms of production, and that pretty much goes right through your lineup on the wing position," Kings coach Darryl Sutter, though Gaborik was one of the players he cited specifically. Gaborik was limited to just 12 goals and 22 points in 54 contests in 2015-16. He's been getting a head start on the season by serving with Team Europe in the World Cup. Gaborik had two goals and three points in three pre-tournament contests and then had a goal in three preliminary games.

Marian Gaborik scored the game-winning goal in Saturday's 3-0 win over the USA.

Gaborik opened the scoring at the 4:19 mark of the first period when he buried a perfect pass from Frans Nielsen. Leon Draisaitl and Pierre-Edouard Bellemare also scored for Team Europe. Team Europe's next game will be on Monday afternoon against the Czech Republic.
Sep 17 - 6:47 PM

Marian Gaborik scored two goals in Sunday's 7-4 loss to Team North America at the World Cup of Hockey.

This was the second pre-tournament game between these two teams and Team North America won them both. Both of Gaborik's goals were scored in the second period. Pierre-Edouard Bellemare and Frans Nielsen also scored for Europe.
Sep 11 - 9:06 PM

Marian Gaborik has been added to Team Europe for the World Cup of Hockey.

Thomas Greiss, Christian Ehrhoff, Luca Sbisa, Pierre-Edouard Bellemare, Nino Niederreiter and Tobias Rieder were also put on the team Friday. Team Europe is made up of players who weren't born in the Czech Republic, Finland, Russia and Sweden.

Marian Gaborik recorded an assist in Los Angeles' 3-2 defeat to San Jose in Game 4 on Wednesday.

It was Gaborik's first point in three playoff games. While that's a good step, it's discouraging that he also played just 13:48 minutes, which is a low for him in this series. Temper your expectations for Gaborik going forward.

Marian Gaborik was upbeat about how he felt in his return from a knee injury.

Gaborik played in Game 2 on Saturday and recorded four shots on goal in 14:32 minutes of ice time. "I felt better as the game went on," Gaborik said. "Obviously missing nine-plus weeks and jumping onto the running train, at the start it was fast, obviously, out there. But as the game went on I felt better and better." He was also feeling good the day after. With the Kings down 2-0 in their series, they'll have to hope Gaborik's capable of playing a meaningful role on Monday.
Apr 18 - 5:51 AM

Marian Gaborik returned to the Kings lineup for Game 2 against the Sharks.

Gaborik hadn’t played since Feb. 12 because of a knee injury. He had 12 goals and 22 points in 54 regular season games.

Marian Gaborik (knee) has been cleared to play, but it's unclear if he will actually suit up in Game 2.

The injury limited him to just 54 games this season. Gaborik hasn't played since Feb. 12. Coach Darryl Sutter said he and Gaborik will decide if he's really ready to return on Saturday night. He took line rushes with Anze Kopitar and Milan Lucic during the morning skate, which indicates that he'll probably be in the lineup. The 34-year-old had 12 goals and 22 points in 2015-16.

Marian Gaborik (knee) took part in the Kings' practice on Wednesday.

Kings coach Darryl Sutter has been secretive when it comes to Marian Gaborik's status lately, which isn't surprising given that it's the playoffs. Still, it's hard to tell at this time if Gaborik has a shot at playing in Game 1 of the first round. Thursday's practice might provide us with more insight though.
Apr 14 - 8:42 AM

Darryl Sutter will not tell us how Marian Gaborik, or any other player, is doing during the playoffs.

"I have no desire to give you any information on the stitches anybody got or what’s wrong with them," Sutter told Joshua Cooper. Well, that's about as Sutter as it gets. Here's what we know: Gaborik skated on Friday, which is a great sign given he has a knee injury. But there's no timetable for his return just yet. Gaborik posted a league-leading 14 goals to go along with 22 points during 2013-14's Stanley Cup championship with the Kings.
