Marian Gaborik had a goal and an assist Saturday.

It was his fourth goal and seventh assist of the season as he has played in only 17 games due to injury. This is not the Gaborik of old who used to be among the scoring leaders but the 35-year-old version who gets about .5 points per game and is injured a lot. He is a tough own in most leagues because of his injury history and more importantly, his lack of scoring most nights.

Marian Gaborik scored a goal in the Kings' 3-2 overtime loss to Vegas on Thursday.

Gaborik had gone four straight games without a point. He has six goals and nine points in 16 contests in 2017-18. The 35-year-old isn't the offensive force he once was, but we could see him improving in the second half from a points-per-game perspective.

Marian Gaborik found the back of the net in Friday's 4-2 loss to the New York Rangers.

Gaborik entered the Rangers zone on a two-on-one with teammate Jussi Jokinen, but he decided to shoot the puck on goal. The shot ended up beating Henrik Lundqvist between the legs (it was a goal Lundqvist will definitely want to have back). Gaborik's tally tied the game at one, but the Rangers managed to come away with the win anyway. He also registered the primary assist on Torrey Mitchell's goal in the second frame. The Kings winger reached an important milestone tonight, as he played in his 1000th NHL game. Gaborik has five goals and three assists in 11 games this season.

Marian Gaborik is just two games shy of 1,000.

If all goes well, Gaborik will reach the milestone on Friday against the Rangers. That would be a nice touch given that he spent parts of four seasons with New York. "It’s definitely a milestone," Gaborik said. "To play 1,000 games is definitely special. It looks like it falls on to play in New York. That’s one of the best places to play in the world. And it’ll be cool." Reaching 1,000 games is always a great accomplishment, but it's particularly noteworthy for Gaborik given all the injuries he's had to overcome over the years. He didn't even make his season debut until Nov. 24 due to a knee injury and he hasn't logged more than 60 games in a season since 2014-15.

Marian Gaborik's second goal on Tuesday brought him to a pair of milestones.

That marker was Gaborik's 400th career goal and 800th career point. He's the 159th player to ever reach the 800-point milestone and 94th player to ever get 400 goals. It speaks to how talented is that he's managed to reach those milestones despite the major injuries that he's dealt with over the course of his career. In this season in particular he's been limited to seven games due to a knee injury, but he's been great when healthy with four goals and six points.

Marian Gaborik scored a pair of even-strength goals in the third period of Tuesday's 5-2 win against the Wild.

Gabby punished his former team with the game-tying goal, and he added the third marker in a four-goal third period against Devan Dubnyk. The Slovakian veteran entered the game with just two goals across his first six games this season, but he is making up for lost time. He is knocking off the rust after missing a month due to a knee injury and starting to look like he is in midseason form.

Marian Gaborik scored a pair of goals in Thursday's 5-2 win over the Washington Capitals.

Gaborik's first goal of the year tied the game at one in the first period, while his second tally of the season made it 4-2 late in regulation. The Kings forward finished the game with a plus-1 rating and two shots on goal in 15:03 of ice time. Gaborik now has four points in four games since coming back from a knee injury that cost him the first month and a half of the 2017-18 season.

Marian Gaborik got an assist in his season debut on Friday.

Gaborik missed nearly the first two months of the campaign due to a knee injury. He only logged 13:51 minutes in his first game back, but he could see his playing time increase as he settles in. "I had a little jitters, to be honest with you, before the game, and it took me a few shifts to get under my belt and I felt better and better after that," Gaborik said. "The first few shifts I was just kind of like wondering what’s going on around me."

Marian Gaborik will make his 2017-18 debut on Friday night.

Gaborik has been sidelined with a knee injury all season, but he's finally ready to go tonight. The Kings forward was once considered one of the premiere talents in the NHL, but his stock has dropped significantly. Don't expect him to have any value in standard leagues this season.

Marian Gaborik (knee) might be able to make his season debut Friday night.

Kings coach John Stevens said that he would consult with the trainers before a final decision on Gaborik's availability was made. Still, even if Gaborik doesn't end up returning on Friday, it's clear that he's very close. If Gaborik does play on Friday, it might be on a line with Jonny Brodzinski and Jussi Jokinen.

Marian Gaborik (knee) may make his season debut this week.

Gaborik could be back as early as Wednesday, but the Kings want to see how he responds after he fully participated in Tuesday's practice. He said he is "really close" and is taking it day by day.

Marian Gaborik (knee) might be able to return in a couple weeks, according to Kings GM Rob Blake.

Gaborik participated in a full practice on Sunday for the first time in six weeks, so he's been showing signs of progress lately. His last NHL game was on April 9.

Although he participated in a full practice for the first time in six weeks, Marian Gaborik (knee) has no timetable for his return.

"That’s the first time he’s skated with the team in six weeks," coach John Stevens said. "It was great that he’s with the team, I think it’s great for him, it’s good for us. He looked it good in practice. He’s got to get his timing back. That’s the first contact he’s had in quite a while. Skating on his own for quite a bit now just trying to get his legs back under him, but it was good to see him out there today and participate as much as he was able to." The injury-prone winger has had only one season of more than 30 points in his last five seasons and that was 47 in the 2014-15 campaign. He is no longer a top six forward in the NHL.

Marian Gaborik practiced with his teammates on Saturday.

Gaborik admitted after practice that he still needs to get the "whole package together" before returning to the lineup. Today was his first real full practice since his knee injury. The three time NHL All-Star has yet to appear in a game this season.
