The Los Angeles Kings have reportedly exposed Marian Gaborik in the expansion draft.
Gaborik is a big name, but he's unlikely to be chosen by Vegas unless the Kings sweeten the pot. Gaborik has four years remaining on his contract at a cap hit of $4.875 million. The other problem with Gaborik is the fact that he has a long injury history. He's played more than 56 games just once over the last six years. Gaborik also underwent knee surgery in April. The Kings also left veteran forward Dustin Brown unprotected. Jun 17 - 7:30 PM

According to TSN hockey insider Pierre LeBrun, the Los Angeles Kings have reached out to Vegas about selecting forward Marian Gaborik in the expansion draft.

LeBrun added that the conversation didn't last long, which means Vegas probably demanded a significant asset if they were going to take Gaborik off Los Angeles' hands. Gaborik has four years remaining on his contract at a cap hit of $4.875 million. The other problem with Gaborik is the fact that he has a long injury history. He's played more than 56 games just once over the last six years. Gaborik also underwent knee surgery in April. It doesn't sound like the Kings will be able to get rid of him very easily.

Marian Gaborik has undergone an unspecified procedure that will prevent him from being ready for training camp.

Gaborik will be entering the fourth season of his seven-year, $34,125,000 contract. The Kings were gambling when they signed Gaborik to a lengthy contract given his injury history and unfortunately it hasn't paid off for them. Gaborik has been limited to just 54 and 56 games in each of the last two campaigns and hasn't been productive offensively when he has played. Nevertheless Kings GM Rob Blake said Gaborik will get a clean slate when he's ready to return.

Keep an eye on the play of Marian Gaborik and Anze Kopitar Saturday night against the Jets.

The two have been reunited on a line and seem to be playing better. Gaborik registered two assists against the Blues Thursday night which followed a goal against the Wild last Saturday. It doesn't sound like all that much but to the eye Gaborik and Kopitar mesh well together and seem to be righting their seasons. If you are a risk taker, add these players to your roster and hope they are over the worst of their respective campaigns.
