Marian Gaborik was held pointless in his first game back in action after he suffered a broken foot in the World Cup.

Gaborik started on the fourth line but you can be assured that he will move up the depth charts in the immediate future. He had only 12 goals and 22 points last season in 54 games but more will be expected the rest of the way as he is a top-six forward.
Nov 28 - 7:30 AM

The Kings have officially activated Marian Gaborik from I/R.

Finally, the Kings may be getting the offensive boost they've so sorely needed. Gaborik, who played well for Team Europe during the World Cup, posted just 22 points in 54 games last year. He'll be looking to get things off to a hot start to say the least.
Nov 26 - 5:42 PM

Marian Gaborik is nearing his return to the Kings following practice on Saturday morning.

Gaborik, who was injured during the World Cup, will be looking to kick off his season strong as he had just 22 points in 54 games last year.
Nov 26 - 3:29 PM

Marian Gaborik (foot) believes he will be ready to play on Saturday.

"I feel good," he said after Friday's practice. "[Playing Saturday is] the plan so obviously tomorrow we'll have a morning skate and go from there, but I think I should be good to go tomorrow." The Kings will probably know his status after the morning skate.
Nov 26 - 11:25 AM

Marian Gaborik (foot) took part in Friday's practice.

Gaborik was already targeting a Saturday return and this is more evidence to suggest he will be successful. If he does play on Saturday it will likely be on a line with Devin Setoguchi and Trevor Lewis.
Nov 25 - 5:16 PM

Marian Gaborik (foot) hopes to be back in the lineup on Saturday.

He took part in Wednesday's practice and he is getting close to making his season debut. Gaborik was injured during the World Cup of Hockey.
Nov 23 - 2:15 PM

Marian Gaborik (broken foot) made another appearance at the Kings' practice facility on Saturday.

That's twice this week that Gaborik has skated, offering signs of life from the veteran winger. Coach Darryl Sutter wouldn't comment on how well he's progressing, but it's conceivable Gaborik could join real practices in December and be ready by January.
Nov 20 - 3:57 PM

Marian Gaborik (foot) was on the ice with his teammates Wednesday.

He said that he's probably still on track to play in December. Gaborik suffered a broken foot during the World Cup of Hockey in September and he hasn't played since.
Nov 16 - 3:48 PM

Marian Gaborik (foot) will not be able to return until December at the earliest.

That's worse than the previous estimate, which would have seen Gaborik return in mid-to-late November. Unfortunately, Gaborik has had far more than his fair share of rough injury news over the course of his campaign. It stings a little more this season though as the hope was he'd bounce back after recording just 22 points in 2015-16.
Nov 5 - 10:45 AM

Marian Gaborik (foot) has been officially placed on the injured reserve list.

That was to be expected as Gaborik is out until mid-to-late November due to an injury he sustained during the World Cup. Unfortunately injuries are an all too common problem for Gaborik so while we hope he'll bounce back and play uninterrupted for the rest of the 2016-17 campaign following his recovery, history makes us skeptical.
Oct 6 - 6:08 PM

Marian Gaborik was seen at the Kings training camp in a walking boot with crutches.

Gaborik is expected to miss around two months after suffering a broken right foot at the World Cup a week ago. He should be back in the Kings lineup in late November and that's not good news for the veteran who had only 22 points last season in 54 contests. At age 34, the best years of Gaborik's career are behind him but look for the Slovak to at least beat last season's totals despite the broken foot.
Oct 3 - 4:50 AM

Marian Gaborik will miss eight weeks due to his foot injury.

In other words, Gaborik's not going to just miss the start of the regular season, but a significant portion of it. The Kings were hoping that he'd bounce back from his 22-point 2015-16 campaign and for a time it looked like the World Cup might serve as a good starting point on that journey. Unfortunately this injury has derailed that and while he might still be effective once he's healthy, there's a real chance that he might not be worth owning in standard leagues this season.
Sep 26 - 5:53 PM

Marian Gaborik suffered a foot injury while representing Team Europe.

Gaborik is done for the rest of the World Cup and will probably miss the start of the regular season as well. He had two goals in four World Cup games. Injuries have been a big issue for Gaborik throughout his career. It used to be that he was at least very effective when healthy, but in 2015-16 he was limited to 12 goals and 22 points in 54 contests.
Sep 26 - 2:33 PM

Marian Gaborik scored his second goal of the world Cup during Team Europe's 3-2 semi-final victory over Team Sweden.

Gaborik created the goal all on his own, scoring from a sharp angle near the goal line to surprise Henrik Lundqvist. He collected four shots in nearly 18 minutes of work in the game. He has two goals and points in the tournament.
