Anze Kopitar collected two assists in the Kings' 4-2 win over the Rangers on Tuesday night.

Kopitar was a force to be reckoned with from start to finish, winning over half his draws and directly leading to two Kings' goals with deft passes on primary assists. He continues to lead the team in assists (44) and points (59) this season.

Anze Kopitar had a hand in each of the Kings' goals as they defeated the Devils 3-1 on Monday night.

Kopitar also contributed by winning half his draws in 20:24 of ice time, including nearly five minutes on special teams. He recorded the primary assist on Andrej Sekera's opening tally, plus a power play assist Tyler Toffoli's goal before scoring one of his own from a sharp angle to seal the game. Kopitar now has 15 goals and 42 assists for 57 points, leading the team in the latter two categories.

Anze Kopitar recorded his 600th career point on Saturday.

Kopitar registered an assist in a 4-1 loss to Vancouver. It took him just 672 contests to reach that feat and at the age of 27, he should have plenty of additional milestones ahead of him. That being said, he's slipped a bit this season compared to recent years with 54 points in 68 contests. Typically he's good for at least 70 points in a single season, but it looks like he'll fall noticeably below that mark in 2014-15.

Anze Kopitar registered an assist in a 3-2 loss to the Anaheim Ducks on Wednesday.

Kopitar has 14 goals and 53 points in 67 games in 2014-15. He's recorded at least 70 points in each of his last four campaigns (not including the lockout shortened season), but it would take an incredible finish for him to keep that trend alive. He's just 27 years old though, so it wouldn't be surprising to see him bounce back in 2015-16.

Anze Kopitar and his wife Ines are parents for the first time.

Ines gave birth to a baby girl early Saturday morning and Anze managed to play on Saturday night in a 2-1 loss to the Predators. "It's not the easiest thing to do, but I wanted to be here for the guys," Kopitar said. "Actually, it was Ines that told me to go and play. I wanted to go, but she said, 'I know you're going to be itching in the hospital watching. You might as well go. You're not going to be here with me. Just go and do your thing.' Obviously, she's the best. She's definitely a trouper." Congratulations to the Kopitar family on the birth of their daughter Neza.

Anze Kopitar scored a goal and added an assist for the Kings Thursday as they shut out the Canucks by a score of 4-0.

The offensive leader of the Kings is finally finding his groove late in the season and has picked up nine points in his last 10 games, giving him 52 on the year in 64 games. Justin Williams also registered a goal and an assist in the win while Marian Gaborik and Tyler Toffoli also found the back of the net for Los Angeles.

Anze Kopitar lead the way for the Kings with a goal and two assists in a 5-2 win over Edmonton on Tuesday.

Kopitar was seemingly all over the ice in this game and his two assists were true artistry in hockey fashion. He added five shots and was a plus-three on the evening. He has 48 points in 60 games this season. Trevor Lewis also added a goal and two assists while Drew Doughty had two assists in the blow out win. Jeff Carter scored his team leading 21st goal shorthanded.

Anze Kopitar had an assist in a 1-0 win against Detroit.

Kopitar has recorded a point in four of his last five games. He has 12 goals and 44 points in 56 contests in 2014-15.
Feb 25 - 9:49 AM

Anze Kopitar and Robyn Regehr each blocked five shots on Saturday.

While it's to be expected that Regehr would do so, having Kopitar block five shows his commitment to winning as he is having a tough time scoring this season. The center has 43 points in 51 games but so many came in one hot streak between Dec. 18-Jan. 17 when he had two goals and 13 assists in eight games. Nevertheless, Kopitar was a plus-two in the 2-1 win over San Jose.
Feb 22 - 7:26 AM

Anze Kopitar had a goal in a 3-2 win over Tampa Bay.

It snapped a 10-game goalless slide for the talented two-way center. Kopitar has 12 goals and 42 points in 53 games in 2014-15. That's a pretty good offensive pace, but he's capable of doing a bit better for the rest of the season.
Feb 17 - 11:01 AM

Anze Kopitar and the Kings were shut out by Washington Tuesday by a score of 4-0.

Kopitar, the Kings' supposed offensive leader, was held without a shot on goal and saddled with a minus-1 rating in the defeat. The slumping center has now amassed just one assist and two shots in three contests since the All-Star break.
Feb 3 - 10:27 PM

Anze Kopitar had two assists in a 4-3 win against Chicago on Wednesday.

Kopitar has five points in his last four contests. That's brought him up to 11 goals and 39 points in 45 contests in 2014-15. With Los Angeles fighting for a playoff spot, it wouldn't be shocking if he picked up the pace a touch so that he finishes the season with around a point-per-game.

Anze Kopitar made the mini net passing look easy in Saturday's NHL Skills Challenge Relay, helping Team Foligno to an easy win over Team Toews.

Kopitar needed just a few attempts more than the minimum to hit all four of the mini nets in the passing accuracy event, hitting two of them on the first try. Each team won an overall heat, but Team Foligno won more individual events and had the overall lowest time, giving them a commanding 12-2 lead.
Jan 24 - 9:02 PM

Anze Kopitar collected two assists but it wasn't enough in the Kings' 4-2 loss to San Jose on Wednesday.

The Kings have been struggling but Kopitar has been red hot in the process. He has points in six of his last eight games (3G, 8A). After a slow start fantasy wise, the Kings star center has gotten back on track with a hot December and January. Kopitar has 37 points in 44 games and seems destined for his usual 70-80 point range by season's end. Dustin Brown scored the other goal for the Kings.
