Anze Kopitar has only one assist in his last six games.
Kopitar has 33 points this season and is in grave danger (is there any other kind) of losing his nine year streak as the Kings leading point getter. He is also a minus-six in the last six contests so all-in-all, the Slovenian has not had a good season. Feb 20 - 8:15 AM

Anze Kopitar has a five game points streak.

The talented center has only six goals and 32 points in 46 games but he got off to a horrific start and has come around in the New Year. He set up Jeff Carter's overtime winner Saturday and has 16 points in his last 14 games.
Feb 5 - 8:21 AM

Anze Kopitar extended his point streak to four games on Wednesday.

Kopitar recorded an assist in a 5-0 win against Colorado. His six goals and 31 points in 45 contests is below what we'd typically expect from him, but he has been making up a lot of ground lately by scoring 15 points in his last 13 games.
Feb 2 - 11:22 AM

Anze Kopitar amassed 14 points in 12 games during the month of January.

He scored three of his six goals during that span, but that continues to be an issue for the Kings top pivot. "He's on his career assists pace, if you do it – games played and assists. So it's goals. So, again, it's shots. If you look at him trying to get into the middle of the ice and take more quality shots. If he does that, he's going to score. He's hit a lot of posts, things like that. He could easily be in double-figures in goals, and then nobody would be even talking about Kopi." He has two goals and three assists over a three-game point streak, so things are looking up for the two-way star.
Feb 1 - 6:22 PM

Anze Kopitar registered an assist in a 3-0 win over Carolina Thursday night.

Kopitar has picked up a point in three of his last four games. That allows him to go into the All-Star break in something of a high note. He's fallen below expectations overall though with five goals and 27 points in 43 contests this season.
Jan 27 - 10:18 AM

Anze Kopitar scored a goal in Tuesday's 3-1 win over the New Jersey Devils.

Kopitar opened the scoring with a power play goal just 50 seconds into the game. Tanner Pearson added a second goal less than a minute later and Alec Martinez added another one before the end of the opening frame. Kopitar has just two goals in his last 19 games, but he remains a valuable two-way player for his team. He has five goals and 21 assists in 42 games.
Jan 24 - 9:56 PM

Anze Kopitar (illness) feels ready to return Wednesday.

He missed Monday's match against Tampa Bay because of a stomach bug, but he was back on the ice Tuesday morning. Kopitar had a four-game point streak before he was forced out of the lineup.
Jan 17 - 2:36 PM

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.
Wed, Dec 28, 2016 05:40:00 AM

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.
Fri, Dec 23, 2016 09:32:00 AM

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.
