If John Zeiler plays on Saturday, it will probably be on the fourth line.

Zeiler was called up in response to Jarret Stoll being given a one-game suspension. There was some speculation that the Kings might call up Brayden Schenn, but Schenn would have probably played a more offensive role. Instead the Kings decided to ask Trevor Lewis to center one of the top two lines and call up Zeiler to serve as a fourth liner.

The Los Angeles Kings have called up John Zeiler from the minors.

Jarret Stoll has reportedly been given a one-game suspension, so Zeiler will play in Game 2 of the first round on Saturday. There was some speculation that the Kings might bring up top-tier prospect Brayden Schenn, but they decided to go with a veteran instead.

John Zeiler has been placed on waivers by the Los Angeles Kings.

The Kings will probably send him to the minors if he clears waivers. He had 11 goals and 20 points in 65 games with AHL Manchester last season.

It should be an interesting night in Denver as John Zeiler will play for the Kings against the Avs.

The last time these two teams met, Zeiler ended up with a three game suspension for his hit from behind on the Avalanche's Adam Foote. Foote will not be in the lineup on Tuesday, but look for Ian Laperriere to try to exact some revenge for his injured teammate.

John Zeiler was reinstated from his suspension and returned to the ice on Friday December 5 in the Kings 5-4 shootout loss to the Edmonton Oilers.

Zeiler was suspended three games for his hit from behind on Colorado's Adam Foote. He only played 4:23 against the Oilers and has had very little fantasy value so far in the 2008-09 campaign. He has zero points and 19 penalty minutes.

John Zeiler has been handed a three-game suspension for his hit-from-behind on Colorado defenseman Adam Foote on Sunday.

He will be eligible to return for a game against the Maple Leafs on Dec. 1; that is if he is not returned to the minors before then.

John Zeiler will start at forward for the Kings on Thursday.

Zeiler returned on Monday from a conditioning stint in the AHL. The move will allow Peter Harrold to move back to the blueline. Neither player has any fantasy value.

John Zeiler was recalled from Manchester of the AHL in time for Saturday afternoon's game against Dallas.

He was in the lineup because Kyle Calder broke his finger against the Coyotes on Thursday night and is out indefinitely. Given that the 26-year-old Zeiler's professional season-high scoring total is 28 points, and that he played only eight minutes in the win over the Stars, we can't recommned him at this time.

John Zeiler was called up from the minors on Saturday March 22.

The Los Angeles Kings have sent John Zeiler to the minors.

Zeiler had only one assist in 34 games this season, not exactly stats that will keep you in the NHL. "We've been really pleased with the energy he has given us and the hits that he's given us, but it pretty much stopped there," coach Marc Crawford said. "There's more of a player there." Perhaps Zeiler can get his game together in the AHL.

John Zeiler scored his first NHL goal on Thursday.

Zeiler signed before the start of the season with the Kings AHL affiliate and the Kings were impressed enough to sign the 24-year-old to an NHL contract last week. It was Zeiler's third NHL game this season and in his career. He really doesn't have fantasy value at this stage of his NHL career.
