Marian Gaborik (knee) still hasn't been cleared to return to action.
"No, I mean, he's just moving along, progressing along," said coach John Stevens. "He's had some really good progress here, but he had some minor setbacks along the way, too. He's obviously been integrated into some full practice situations, so we're just going to monitor him, see how he responds each day. Most of it's been positive, but no, he's not been fully cleared." Gaborik has work to do before he can put his chronic knee issue behind him. Sep 25 - 5:32 PM

Marian Gaborik (knee) is making progress, but there's still no timetable for his return to game action.

Gaborik took part in line rushes and participated in most of the drills on Wednesday at practice. He also took some contact, but he isn't sure if he'll play in the preseason.

Marian Gaborik is making progress in his recovery from a chronic issue related to his left knee.

"He's been skating, he's been integrated into some practices non-contact, and they're moving along. He is getting stronger," coach John Stevens said. "He's not going to China with us. He's going to stay here and continue his rehab here and keep progressing along. We're going to meet with Matt Price and John Meyer and Chris Kingsley before we go just to see at what point he can be integrated into practices. We're hoping that's a little bit when we're gone. But we're going to take it each day. He skated today early by himself. He was on the ice at 7:00 this morning. He's going to continue to skate, and he's close to a point where he can get his timing back on top of his hockey conditioning." Gaborik only played in 56 games last year after he skated in 54 contests in 2015-16.

Marian Gaborik won't be ready for the start of training camp, per GM Rob Blake.

Gaborik underwent a non-surgical procedure to repair a tendon and a ligament during the off-season, according to "He’s progressing pretty well from the summer," Blake said. "He still has some difficulty with some of the lifts and the strength. We’re probably not sure if we’ll see him in training camp right away, but again, he’s a guy that trains at a very high level and he’s made a commitment to stay in L.A. after he got married, get the rehab back on course. We’re hopeful he can get back to the level that he started last season and the World Cup at." Injuries have always been an issue with Gaborik. Even if he does return to full health from this particular one, it's far from guaranteed that he'll be able to stay on the ice all season.

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.

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's surgical procedure was for a chronic issue related to his left knee.

He is considered to be questionable for the start of training camp. Gaborik's procedure was described as being "more in-depth" by the Kings.
Apr 25 - 3:20 PM

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.
