Anze Kopitar scored twice, including once on the power play, but the Kings still fell to the Hurricanes 4-3 on Sunday.

It's been a difficult season for Kopitar, but he's now up to seven goals and has points in three of his last five games. Ten points in 20 games may be worrisome, but Kopitar has four goals and seven points in November. Suggesting he may be heating up slowly but surely.
Nov 22 - 5:10 PM

Anze Kopitar picked up only his third assist of the season Friday on Jeff Carter's shorthanded effort.

Kopitar is off to another slow start as he has only five goals and eight points in 19 games. Kopitar had to come from way off the pace last season to lead the Kings in scoring for an eighth consecutive season and will have to do it again to make it nine in a row.
Nov 21 - 7:14 AM

Anze Kopitar played in his 700th NHL game on Saturday.

There was some thought that Kopitar would be unable to go after he took a shot off his foot Thursday but apparently it was sorer to walk than to skate. Kopitar was a plus-one in the game and has only five goals and seven points in 17 games. A lot more is expected of him for the rest of the season.
Nov 15 - 5:40 AM

Anze Kopitar did not practice on Friday as coach Darryl Sutter gave him a maintenance day off.

Kopitar is slated to go on Saturday against the Oilers. He took a shot off his leg at the end of Thursday's game but should be fine to go. "He’s had a maintenance day," Associate Coach John Stevens said. "He’s a pretty resilient guy, so I don't have any further update than that." Stay tuned as Kopitar has been in a bit of a slump this season with only seven points in 16 games.
Nov 14 - 6:16 AM

Anze Kopitar had an assist in a 2-1 victory Thursday night.

Kopitar has only been held off the scoresheet once in his last four games. Perhaps he's starting to turn things around, but he still has just seven points in 16 games this season.
Nov 13 - 11:00 AM

Anze Kopitar had an assist in a 3-2 loss to Columbus on Thursday.

Kopitar was initially questionable after taking an elbow to the face during Tuesday's contest. This was his first assist and fifth point in 13 games this season.
Nov 6 - 10:45 AM

Anze Kopitar (upper body) is good to play on Thursday.

Kopitar took an elbow to the face during Tuesday's game and underwent the concussion protocol as a result. It looks like he will not miss a full contest due to the incident though. He has just four points in 12 games, but he should be able to rebound and have another strong campaign.
Nov 5 - 2:10 PM

Anze Kopitar (upper body) took part in off-ice workouts Wednesday with his teammates.

Coach Darryl Sutter said that Kopitar was "good" after he exited Tuesday's game early. The Kings center was hit in the face by Ryan Reaves of the Blues. It's unclear if Kopitar will be available to play against Columbus on Thursday night.
Nov 4 - 5:11 PM

Anze Kopitar (upper body) is reportedly feeling much better after he left Tuesday's game versus St. Louis.

He underwent concussion protocol after taking an elbow to the face from Blues tough guy Ryan Reaves. Kopitar will see doctors Wednesday, so the Kings aren't saying much about his status yet.
Nov 4 - 12:33 PM

Anze Kopitar left Tuesday's game against the Blues because of an upper-body injury.

Kopitar was banged up after taking a hit to the lower part of his face from Blues forward Ryan Reaves. He returned to the game, but would not come out for the second period.
Nov 3 - 11:19 PM

Anze Kopitar scored a goal in the Kings' 4-2 loss to the Chicago Blackhawks on Monday.

That was Kopitar's fourth goal in 11 games this season. That's not bad for him, but he hasn't recorded a single assist so far. It's certainly not the kind of start he likely envisioned in his contract season.
Nov 3 - 9:32 AM

Anze Kopitar picked up his second goal of season in Friday's 3-0 win over Carolina.

Kopitar is off to easily the worst start of his career with just two points in seven games thus far. He's also shooting 13.3% (two goals on 15 shots in seven games) thus far, and truth be told, if he raises his volume a bit and keeps the pace he'll be just fine. Until then though, you may want to consider recouping some value in the trade market.
Oct 24 - 1:33 AM

Anze Kopitar netted the Kings' first win of the season when he scored in overtime to beat the Wild 2-1 on Friday.

Kopitar had another stellar game, skating a game-high (among forwards) 24:12 including 4:21 on both sides of special teams. He also won 61% of his draws. Oddly, the goal was his first point of the season as well.
Oct 17 - 1:48 AM

The Los Angeles Kings managed just 15 shots on goal in Tuesday's 3-0 loss to Vancouver.

Los Angeles only has two goals this season and are off to a 0-3-0 start. "We're not doing the things that we've got to do to get the chances and the shots that are quality chances," Kopitar said. "Whether that's not coming in with possession or not recovering the puck the way we should. I just think we're playing too soft to get the pucks back. When we chip the pucks back in, about 80% of the time, they come right back out with the puck. We've got to get some stops and some zone time." Los Angeles will have to wait until Friday against Minnesota for its next chance to breathe some life into its campaign.
