Date:

Anze Kopitar was kept out of Monday's contest due to an illness.

Kopitar has four goals and 24 points in 38 contests in 2016-17. He was a late scratch due to the disease.
Jan 16 - 4:33 PM

Anze Kopitar had assists on all three Los Angeles goals Saturday.

The veteran pivot is up to 20 helpers as he also has 24 points. He trails teammate Jeff Carter by 16 points for the team lead and if he is unable to surpass Carter, it will be the first time in 10 years that Kopitar has not led the Kings in points. He has been hot enough (on a four game points streak) to be taken in shallower pools as well.
Jan 15 - 8:48 AM

Anze Kopitar recorded an assist in Saturday's 4-3 overtime win over the Wild.

He collected his 15th helper of the season, giving him 18 points through 35 games. Poor scoring rates appear to have infected everyone on the team, unfortunately. However through the first 799 games of his career the captain has 702 points, so we'd expect him to finish strong.
Jan 7 - 8:08 PM

Anze Kopitar has scored just one goal in his last 24 games.

Those are ugly numbers for the Kings' captain, whose last goal came on December 13th. Things haven't been looking much better lately, as he's only netted two points in his last 10 games. Kopitar will likely start producing sooner than later, but fantasy owners are surely disappointed with the way he's played so far this year.

Anze Kopitar skated alongside Marian Gaborik and Dustin Brown during Tuesday's practice.

That trio played a big part of the Kings' run to a Stanley Cup championship in the 2014 playoffs. The hope is that now they will be up to the more modest task of sparking the Kings at a time when Tyler Toffoli is sidelined. Kopitar and Gaborik have both underperformed this season while Brown has improved compared to 2015-16, but is still off from his glory days. We'll see if being reunited helps the trio.

Anze Kopitar recorded an assist in the Kings' 4-0 win over Nashville Thursday night.

Kopitar didn't record a point in his previous four games. He has three goals and 16 points in 28 contests in 2016-17. Not including the lockout shortened 2013 campaign, Kopitar has never recorded less than 61 points in a single season and that was back in his rookie campaign. Still, it looks like 2016-17 might be a new low for him.

Anze Kopitar found the back of the net in Los Angeles' 6-3 loss to Buffalo.

Kopitar brought an end to a goal drought that lasted 16 games. As you might imagine from that slump, he's underperformed this season with three goals and 15 points in 23 games. Perhaps this will mark a turning point for him though.
Wed, Dec 14, 2016 04:30:00 AM

Anze Kopitar has gone his last 16 games without a goal.

Kopitar has two goals and 14 points in 22 games but has gone pointless in his last two after five assists in his previous pair of games. Kopitar has led the Kings in points in each of the last nine seasons but is in danger of losing that streak this year. While we still recommend him, Kopitar certainly needs to pick up the offensive pace for the Kings.

Following his two-assist effort against Arizona on Thursday, LA's Captain put up a three-assist effort in the 5-4 shootout loss to Montreal.

Mark that six helpers over his last five games to boot. Very quickly his points are becoming commiserate with his talent level, now up to nine helpers and 11 points in 19 games.
Sun, Dec 4, 2016 06:35:00 PM

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.
Sun, Dec 4, 2016 07:49:00 AM

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.
Thu, Nov 24, 2016 03:57:00 AM

Anze Kopitar (upper body) might be back in the lineup on Wednesday night.

He skated with Dwight King and Trevor Lewis during the team's morning session. More importantly, Kopitar did not stay on the ice for extra work, which indicates he is ready to play.
Wed, Nov 23, 2016 05:30:00 PM

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.
