Not a bad regular season debut for Pearson, as he returned to the lineup after serving a two-game suspension for an illegal hit to the head. He opened the scoring just 50 seconds into the game and added his second of the night in the third period to cut the Wild lead to 5-3. Pearson finished the game with a plus-1 rating, four shots on goal and one hit in 16 minutes of ice time. Anze Kopitar also scored for the Kings on Tuesday night. Los Angeles is now 0-3-0 this season.

Oct 5 - 2:12 PM

Tanner Pearson will have a phone call with the Department of Player Safety for his illegal check to the head of Edmonton's Brandon Davidson.

Which means Pearson's suspension will be no longer than five games. Certainly not an ideal way to kick off the season, but the timing of the infraction won't be a hindrance to Pearson or the Kings' season.

Pearson was unavailable for Tuesday's game. He's projected to play alongside Tyler Toffoli on Nic Dowd.
Mar 24 - 4:03 PM

Tanner Pearson will be scratched from Tuesday's match for "personal reason."

Well, that's ominous. Hopefully everything works out for him. Through 70 games this season Pearson has put together a nice season as a 23-year-old. He's posted 13 goals and 33 points with 98 hits.
Mar 22 - 8:19 PM

Tanner Pearson has been an offensive force of late with eight points in his last nine games.

Pearson also has six goals in his last 13 contests. He has been a solid performer of late and that has impressed coach Darryl Sutter. "Five-on-five he’s given us a more solid game, and obviously he’s scored, probably in our last 10 games, he’s probably got, what, six or seven? We need that. We need him to get his game back up, and with Tanner, he’s got to work from small parts of the game first, and then he has success the other way. When he stops working in the hard areas, then it looks like he’s not involved. Hey, he had to sit out a game because of that."
Mar 12 - 7:35 AM

Tanner Pearson's three game goal scoring streak ended Saturday.

Pearson has tied his career best mark of 12 goals as he had four goals during the streak. He has some fantasy value as he sees second line duty but gets little time with the man-advantage.
