After being a healthy scratch in the Kings' opener, Brayden McNabb has logged almost all of his five-on-five minutes with Drew Doughty.

McNabb has been a bright spot through Los Angeles' 0-3-0 start. "I absolutely love playing with Nabber right now," Doughty said. "I think he's a hell of a player, and he's just getting better and better every game, and I also think I can help him a lot." McNabb had 24 points in 71 games last season, but he has some untapped offensive upside. We wouldn't recommend grabbing him right away in standard leagues, but he's worth keeping an eye on.

Brayden McNabb continues to play well for the Kings as he has taken advantage of the injuries and suspension on the blueline.

McNabb came into the season as the Kings extra defenseman on the depth chart but has played in every game this season and has nine assists, a plus-two rating and 31 penalty minutes in 26 games thus far. "With all that’s gone on with our back end, it’s allowed Brayden to play, and that’s been really good for him, and it’s really good for us, not just now, but I think in the big picture of it," coach Darryl Sutter said. "It’s almost basically the same talking about Marty’s signing – that big picture part of it – it’s the same as Brayden. Brayden’s our youngest defenseman, and he was looked on coming in as a guy who we wanted to sort of integrate into our team, and that’s what we’ve been able to do." If you are in need of a defenseman in deep pools, McNabb is likely still available and his stats won't hurt you.
