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.
Oct 14 - 8:18 PM

Tom Gilbert has signed a one-year deal with Los Angeles worth $1.4 million.

He suited up in 45 games with Montreal last season and finished the year on the sidelines with a knee injury. Gilbert is expected to be sidelined until late August with the ailment.
Jul 1 - 1:23 PM

Tom Gilbert has undergone surgery on his left knee.

Gilbert was already ruled out for the rest of the season, but we now know that he's more precisely expected to miss six months. The fact that Gilbert will likely be recovering from this injury until late August is potentially a big problem for him because he will be an unrestricted free agent this summer. He might not find that there's not much of a market for him at the start of the free agent frenzy due to his injury and by the time he's healthy, most teams might only be interested in short-term or discount deals.
Feb 25 - 12:24 PM

Tom Gilbert (knee) is listed on injured reserve.

He will miss the rest of the season after he has surgery on his left knee. Gilbert had one goal and one assist in 45 games with the Canadiens in 2015-16.
Feb 23 - 4:22 PM

Tom Gilbert will miss the rest of the season following surgery on his left knee.

He appeared to suffer a foot injury when he blocked a shot in Friday's shootout win over Philadelphia, but that isn't what the team announced after Monday's shootout loss to Nashville. Gilbert may have been trade bait for the Canadiens, but now he is off the board and could test unrestricted free agency in the summer.
