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.
Nov 3 - 5:26 PM

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.

Coming into the season, Gaborik had just 23 goals to his credit since being dealt away from the Rangers in a 2012-13 blockbuster with the Blue Jackets. Of course Gaborik has been severely hampered by injuries over that time, but it's worth noting that he's on the cusp of reaching at least 30-goals for the eighth time in his career. And the first since notching 41 with the Rangers in 2011-12.

Gaborik now has 19 assists and 41 points in 59 games this season.
Mar 23 - 10:51 PM

It was a power-play goal, something made clear by -3 ratings for Gaborik, Drew Doughty and Anze Kopitar (Doughty and Kopitar had one assist apiece). Every win and loss counts for the Kings, so this hurts, especially since the defeat came in regulation.
