Dion Phaneuf (illness) is questionable for Thursday's game.

Kings coach John Stevens wouldn't commit to Phaneuf being available, instead saying that he hopes the blueliner will be. He has six goals and 22 points in 63 contests this season, but he's been particularly effective since joining Los Angeles with six points in 10 games.
Mar 8 - 4:48 PM

Dion Phaneuf didn't take part in Wednesday's practice due to an illness.

It remains to be seen if this will prevent Phaneuf from playing on Thursday. He has three goals and six points in 10 contests since joining the Kings.
Mar 8 - 7:28 AM

Dion Phaneuf registered an assist in the Kings' 4-1 win against Vegas on Tuesday.

Phaneuf has been pretty good offensively since being acquired by Los Angeles. He's up to three goals and five points in eight contests with the Kings. Contrast that with his three goals and 16 points in 53 games with Ottawa before being dealt.
Feb 28 - 9:59 AM

Dion Phaneuf scored in Tuesday's 4-3 win over the Winnipeg Jets.

Phaneuf's power play marker at the 17:05 mark of the second period gave the Kings a 2-1 lead at the time. He's been a terrific addition since being acquired from the Ottawa Senators last week. Phaneuf has scored three goals in four games since joining Los Angeles. There's no way he'll be able to keep this up, so his fantasy owners should enjoy it while it lasts. The 32-year-old has six goals and 19 points in 57 games this season. Alec Martinez, Torrey Mitchell and Dustin Brown also scored for Los Angeles on Tuesday night.
Feb 21 - 12:12 AM

Dion Phaneuf scored a goal and he delivered four hits with two blocked shots in Monday's 3-1 victory at Chicago.

The veteran looks rejuvenated since joining the Kings, scoring two goals in three goals after managing a total of three goals with 16 points and a minus-8 rating in 53 games with the Senators earlier this season. It's been a while since Phaneuf was a double-digit per season goal threat. In fact, he hasn't had more than nine goals since he lit the lamp 12 times with the Maple Leafs during the 2011-12 season. Temper fantasy expectations for the remainder of the season despite his first-week hot run in Hollywood.

Dion Phaneuf almost wasn't eligible to play in Thursday's game.

Phaneuf was acquired by Los Angeles Tuesday night, but had to wait for his immigration paperwork to go through before he was eligible to play for the Kings. As noted Thursday afternoon, it was looking like he might not be able to play Thursday night for that reason and indeed Phaneuf was anticipating that outcome. "The odds were that the immigration stuff wasn’t going to go through, was what I was told," Phaneuf said. "I’m very fortunate that they were able to get the paperwork done and when I found out, I was pretty excited about the opportunity to play my first game for this organization." Phaneuf made an impression in his Kings debut with a power-play goal. Unfortunately, that was all the offense the Kings were able to muster as they lost to Pittsburgh 3-1.

Dion Phaneuf scored a goal in Thursday's 3-1 loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Phaneuf found the back of the net in his Kings debut, but it's the only offense they were able to muster on Thursday night. He finished the night with a minus-1 rating, three shots on goal, three hits and three blocked shots in 18:56 of ice time. Phaneuf now has four goals, 17 points and a minus-9 rating in 54 games this season.

Dion Phaneuf will play in Thursday's game against the Penguins.

Feb 15 - 7:08 PM

Dion Phaneuf might have to wait to make his Kings debut.

While it initially looked like he would debut on Thursday after being acquired from Ottawa on Tuesday, immigration issues might prevent that. If he does play, Phaneuf will likely be paired with Alec Martinez.
Feb 15 - 12:46 PM

Dion Phaneuf took part in his first practice with the Los Angeles Kings on Wednesday.

Phaneuf was paired with Alec Martinez on the second unit, so it wouldn't be surprising if that's his role when he makes his Kings debut on Thursday. He was acquired by Los Angeles Tuesday night in a trade that also sent Marian Gaborik to Ottawa.
Feb 15 - 4:50 AM

In a funny coincidence, Dion Phaneuf isn't going to have to travel anywhere to meet up with his new team, the Los Angeles Kings.

Phaneuf was playing for Ottawa in Pittsburgh Tuesday night when the Senators pulled him from the game and informed him that he had been traded to the Los Angeles Kings. However, the Kings will be playing in Pittsburgh on Thursday, so Phaneuf will simply remain in the city and wait for his new teammates to join him. "It’s a different situation. I’m not flying anywhere to meet them so my gear’s staying here and I am too," Phaneuf said. He's excited to be part of the Kings and it should be interesting to see how he fits in. While he's not the offensive force he once was, he's capable of logging top-four minutes and he plays with a physical edge that the Kings should enjoy.
Feb 14 - 5:26 AM

The Ottawa Senators have dealt Dion Phaneuf and Nate Thompson to the Los Angeles Kings in exchange for Marian Gaborik and Nick Shore.

The Senators will also retain 25 percent of Phaneuf's salary. Phaneuf was pulled from the Senators-Penguins game tonight in order to facilitate a trade to Los Angeles. The veteran defenseman has 16 points in 52 games this season.
Feb 13 - 9:43 PM
