Anze Kopitar has only two goals in 19 games this season.

Hopefully the return of Marian Gaborik who had been out all season, will help Kopitar who has led the Kings in scoring in each of the last nine seasons. Kopitar got off to a slow start last season as well and the upper body injury that kept him out of the lineup for five games.

Anze Kopitar picked up a pair of assists in the Kings 4-3 win over Arizona.

The apples snapped a two game pointless streak for the all-star. He has had a slow start to the season with just 11 points in 19 games. He started slow last season too though and really came on in the second half. We would bet for more of the same as he is still in the prime of his career. Get him in your lineups.

Anze Kopitar (upper body) returned to action Wednesday after a five game absence.

Kopitar assisted on Alec Martinez's opening goal and now has two goals and nine points in 15 games. Put him back in your lineup as he has led the Kings in points in each of the last 10 seasons.

Anze Kopitar (upper body) is questionable for Wednesday's game against the Islanders.

Kopitar has missed the last five games and while he practice on Tuesday with fellow injured players Marian Gaborik and Andy Andreoff, he is still not 100 percent to go Wednesday. He has two goals and eight points in 13 games and his fantasy owners can't wait to get him back in their lineup.

After skating at the practice facility on Saturday, Anze Kopitar (upper body) will still miss his fifth straight game on Sunday when the Kings take on the Ducks.

The Kings will finish the month with a three-game home stand starting on Wednesday the 23rd, offering the Captain time to return before the calendar flips to December. Assuming he's capable, that it. Stay patient.

Anze Kopitar (upper body) won't play in Saturday's match with the Devils.

Anze Kopitar (upper body) skated on Wednesday.

He remains day-to-day, so it's uncertain if he will be able to play on Thursday. "Skate again tomorrow, see what happens, and we'll go from there," he said. Kopitar has apparently been told he could proceed without worsening the injury, but it doesn't sound like he is ready just yet.

Anze Kopitar (upper body) will miss Tuesday's game.

Anze Kopitar will be joined by Matt Greene and Jeff Zatkoff in the press box as the Kings take on the Jets Sunday afternoon.

Kopitar is still considered day-to-day with an upper-body injury and Zatkoff is out with a lower-body injury. Greene's just a plain old healthy scratch. He has two points with 33 hits in eight games this season.

Anze Kopitar exited Friday's game versus Ottawa in the third period due to an injury.

He sustained an apparent upper-body injury, so he finished the contest with 17:55 of ice time and three shots. Kopitar was hurt on a hit from Ottawa defenseman Marc Methot and tried to return before heading back to the locker room. Consider him day-to-day for now.
