Kyle Clifford picked up the 29th goal of his career during Thursday's 4-3 overtime win over the Rangers.

It was a beauty of a sequence, too. Jeff Carter found himself with the puck beside the net, but facing the glass, so he does what you'd expect - make a perfect dish to the slot for an awaiting Clifford. Who did the next thing you'd expect, tuck the biscuit in the ol' basket. The goal made it 3-2 early in the third, en route to the comeback.

Kyle Clifford (concussion) practiced with the Los Angeles Kings on Monday.

He's back after going to the AHL for a conditioning stint. The forward has been out since Dec. 6. "It's best for him to go play," said coach Darryl Sutter. "He hasn't played much this year. He's played 26 games. But if you add it up, in terms of minutes played, he's played four games this year. He's in a competition with five or six other guys to see what our lineup is."

Kyle Clifford (upper body) has played a couple of games in AHL on a conditioning stint.

Clifford was sent down to the Ontario Reign of the AHL three days ago as he hasn't played since December 6. He had six shots on net over two games as the Reign won both by shutouts. Look for Clifford to return to the Kings lineup shortly. He had three assists and 28 penalty minutes in 26 games with Los Angeles before the injury.

Jan 28 - 3:37 PM

Jan 16 - 7:17 AM

Jan 14 - 6:21 PM

Kyle Clifford (upper body) has not resumed skating.

After taking a Victor Hedman elbow to the face on Sunday, Kyle Clifford will miss Tuesday's match with Columbus due to a what the team is calling an upper body injury.

For the season, Clifford offers 28 PIMs and 49 hits of fantasy value over 26 games but he's seeing less than nine minutes per night. He's registered 12 PIMs and just a single minor over his last five games as well, making his not much of a fantasy asset. We'll keep you posted on his status, but it's worth noting that he did skate prior to the game Tuesday.

Kyle Clifford fought Nick Foligno in Thursday's 3-2 loss to Columbus.

If you're the Kings, this is an excellent trade. No disrespect to Clifford, but any time you can take one of the other team's best players for at least five minutes - that's a win. Unfortunately, Clifford didn't do anything else noteworthy. He now has 19 PIMs in 13 games.
Fri, Nov 6, 2015 01:47:00 AM

Kyle Clifford had an assist in Los Angeles' 3-2 win over Edmonton on Sunday.

It was Clifford's first point of the season. If he even gets 20 points in 2015-16, then that would significantly surpass his current career high.
