The Colonel, as Clifford is oft-referred to as, provides excellence in the hits and PIMs department with 59 and 40 respectively. Unfortunately that's about the extent of both his and Gilbert's fantasy value.

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."

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.
