Jake Muzzin only logged 3:31 minutes in the third period of Los Angeles' 4-3 loss to the New York Rangers.
"He refused to check," Kings coach Darryl Sutter said of his decision to limit Muzzin's role late in the game. "You don't get played for what you did last year or last week or somewhere else. It's how you’re playing tonight." Muzzin has been averaging 23:33 minutes per game this season and we imagine Sutter will go back to using him liberally when Los Angeles plays on Saturday. Muzzin has five goals and 20 points in 35 games this season. Jan 9 - 10:46 AM

Jake Muzzin continued his hot play of late as he picked up an assist and was a plus-three on Saturday.

The Kings were on the wrong end of a 5-4 decision to Dallas but you could not blame Muzzin for the loss. He has 10 points in his last eight games and owned in only 44 percent of Yahoo pools. After going his first seven games with nary a point, he has really picked it up and should be owned in all fantasy pools.
