Marian Gaborik picked up his first goal in two weeks during Thursday's 4-1 win over Calgary.

Gaborik now has just eight goals this season, tack on the assist he also collected and he has 15 points in 37 games thus far. A far cry from what was expected of the elite scorer coming into the campaign.

Marian Gaborik scored a goal and an assist to help the Kings top the Montreal Canadiens 2-0 on Thursday night.

The inconsistent winger is having his best month of the season so far with five points in eight December games so far. Gaborik has just 12 points in 31 contests.

Marian Gaborik lit the lamp for the Kings, who fell 2-1 in overtime to the Sabres on Saturday night.

Gaborik scored at 4:47 of the first period, with assists to Anze Kopitar and Tanner Pearson. While the result isn’t what the Kings wanted, that Gaborik scored is promising. He had gone five games without a goal. With six goals and 10 points, Gaborik has been a major disappointment. We wouldn't recommend dropping him, but if an owner is interested, be open to a deal.

Marian Gaborik is on a three game points streak.

You know it's been a bad season when writing that Gaborik is on a three game streak but that's the way it's been this season as he now has two goals and four points in his last three and has five goals and nine points in 25 games. That is poor production for a former 40 goal scorer but at age 33, maybe it's time to say that he is just a middling winger.

Marian Gaborik had an assist in a 2-1 overtime win Tuesday night.

Gaborik got off to a slow start this season, but he's starting to heat up. He has recorded at least a point in three of his last four contests, bringing him up to five goals and eight points in 24 games in 2015-16.

Marian Gaborik tallied two goals to lead the Kings past the Blackhawks 3-2 in overtime on Saturday night.

Gaborik picked a good time to snap out of his scoring woes, with his first goal tying the game and the overtime one winning it. He has three goals in his past three games. The Slovakian winger upped his totals to five goals and seven points on the season. Jeff Carter scored the other marker, the start of three unanswered for Los Angeles. Anze Kopitar had two assists.

Marian Gaborik had his first two point night of the season Saturday.

It has been a terrible season for the veteran who doubled his point count to four with the goal and assist. Gaborik has always been a point producer but at age 33, he could be slipping. Gaborik had been seeing first line time with Anze Kopitar most of the season but both are having weak seasons as far as scoring is concerned.

Marian Gaborik was on the third line in practice Friday.

He was on the wing with Dustin Brown while Nick Shore was in the middle. Gaborik is having a terrible season with a goal and an assist in 13 games to go with a minus-five rating. He should be nailed to your fantasy bench at this time at best.

Marian Gaborik knows he has to be better, but he is encouraged after he had five shots on goal in Monday's loss to Chicago.

"The shots haven't been there for me as much as I'd like to, so it was nice to get some shots, but I obviously need to do more to help this team, and that's just the bottom line," Gaborik said. "I need to do more overall." Coach Darryl Sutter has a simple solution for the winger's scoring woes. He wants Gaborik to get closer to the net and finish any chances he gets. He has one goal and one assist in 11 games this year.

Marian Gaborik scored one of two goals for the Kings in their 2-1 win over the Avalanche on Sunday.

This was Gaborik’s first goal of the season and is seriously struggling out the gate. However, as long as he keeps playing on a line with Kopitar he is worth holding onto in fantasy. The Kings will be hoping this kick starts his campaign because they will need his goals if they hope to make the playoffs. The other goal scorer for the Kings was Tyler Toffoli.

Marian Gaborik moved back to the left wing in practice Saturday.

Gaborik had been playing his natural right wing during training camp and the first two games of the season as coach Darryl Sutter placed right winger Milan Lucic on the top line. But the lines were switched up Saturday and Dustin Brown was moved to the top unit with Lucic moving to the second line. That forced Gaborik to the left wing as Brown also plays the right side. "Darryl’s the coach," Gaborik said. "He makes all the decisions, and obviously in these two games, the first game we didn’t have anything, and our last game, a little bit better, but obviously we need to generate more. It’s a long year, so obviously you’re going to see changes and stuff, but that’s just the way it is. Whoever I'm playing with, we just have to make the best out of it ... and play well, play the least amount of time in our zone and have some zone time in their end, and just capitalize and bear down on opportunities and score some goals."

The Los Angeles Kings could move Marian Gaborik to the right wing next season.

The Kings dealt for Milan Lucic on Friday and he could be on the top line with Gaborik and Anze Kopitar necessitating the move of Gaborik to the right side to accommodate Lucic. All this should get resolved during training camp but the Kings have certainly found their power forward to play with Gaborik and Kopitar.

Marian Gaborik scored his third goal for Team Slovakia during their 3-2 overtime loss to Team Russia on Sunday.

Gaborik now has three goals and four points along with six PIMs and 23 shots on goal while averaging 13:04 through six games.

Marian Gaborik netted a goal for the Kings in their 3-1 win over the Avalanche on Saturday night.

Gaborik scored in the third period, his 26th of the season. He also has 46 points and remains one of the streakiest goal scorers in the league. Dwight King and Alec Martinez notched the other goals. Robyn Regehr tallied two assists.
