Tom Gilbert will make his first appearance with the Kings on Tuesday

"It's exciting," he said. "I mean, two reasons – first of all, I put on the jersey and play my first game. Then, obviously being in Minnesota where my family is from, they get to come and watch." Gilbert is projected to be paired with Derek Forbort.

Tom Gilbert and Nic Dowd will be scratched against the Flyers on Friday night.

Gilbert had a tough go with Montreal last season, seeing just 45 games mostly due to a knee injury. For his career, the 33-year-old's best asset in fantasy is his ability to soak up pucks. Gilbert has blocked nearly two pucks a game for his career, but that's not LA's M.O, so we wouldn't anticipate much fantasy production from him.
