Tanner Pearson will likely draw back into the lineup on Friday.

Pearson spent two straight games in the press box. However, he skated alongside Jeff Carter and Tyler Toffoli during Friday's practice.
Feb 12 - 12:19 PM

Tanner Pearson will be a healthy scratch in Thursday's game against the Islanders.

This will be his second consecutive game in the press box. The 23-year-old has six goals and 21 points in 51 games this season. Jamie McBain and Nick Shore will also serve as healthy scratches.
Feb 11 - 7:14 PM

Tanner Pearson, Nick Shore, and Jamie McBain will be scratched from Tuesday's tilt with Boston.

Of the three, only Pearson has been able to put up a modicum of fantasy value this season. The youngster has posted six goals and 21 points in 51 games this season. Still just 23-years-old we wouldn't give up on him just yet in dynansty pools.
Feb 9 - 6:03 PM

Tanner Pearson has only one assist in his last 11 games.

That's quite the slump for the winger who has dropped down the depth charts. The good news is that he has played every game this season which is quite an accomplishment since he has not played in more than 66 games in the regular season ever, including junior hockey. He has six goals and 21 points in 51 games this season so his fantasy value is negligible at best.
Feb 9 - 8:29 AM

Tanner Pearson wants to take the puck to the net more often.

"I've got to start taking the puck to the net more," Pearson said. "Even when you take the puck to the net, you may not score but you want to create something whether it's a rebound or whatnot or someone else can get a goal." The 23-year-old has one point in his last nine games and 21 points in 49 games this season.
Feb 2 - 10:34 AM

Tanner Pearson collected his second two-point effort in five games during Thursday's 4-1 win over Calgary.

The goal he scored was his sixth, while the assist raised his point total up to 19 on the campaign. The third member of the illustrious That 70's Line hasn't quite been pulling his weight, but with two goals and five points over his last five games perhaps he's turning it around.
Jan 1 - 3:30 AM

Tanner Pearson returned to the second line in practice to reunite the 70s line.

Jeff Carter, Tyler Toffoli and Pearson had a great season together when all were healthy last season but Milan Lucic had played well enough this season to force Pearson to a bottom-six role. But that will not be the case on Saturday as the trio gets back together for a reunion.

Tanner Pearson registered an assist in a 3-2 shootout win against Philadelphia Tuesday night.

Pearson has only been held off the scoresheet in one of his last five games. He now has three goals and 11 points in 18 contests this season.
Wed, Nov 18, 2015 08:49:00 AM

Tanner Pearson had a goal and two assists in the Kings' 4-3 win against the Oilers on Saturday.

Marian Gaborik had his second goal and his second assist of the 2015-16 campaign. Milan Lucic and Nick Shore each found the back of the net. Tyler Toffoli and Jeff Carter were each credited with an assist.

Tanner Pearson scored a goal and an assist in Tuesday's 3-0 win over the St. Louis.

Pearson did all of his damage in the last five minutes of the game. He scored the insurance marker at the 15:27 mark of the third and added an assist on Trevor Lewis' empty net goal less than four minutes later. The 23-year-old has two goals and five points in 12 games.
Tue, Nov 3, 2015 11:22:00 PM

Tanner Pearson scored the game-winning goal in the Kings' 3-2 victory over Edmonton.

Going into that contest, Pearson hadn't found the back of the net this season. The 23-year-old forward excelled in October 2014, but beyond that he's been relatively quiet when it comes to the regular season. He's got potential, but isn't reliable enough to make him worth grabbing in standard leagues.

Tanner Pearson (ankle) will not return before the end of the regular season.

Pearson will have another X-Ray on Tuesday. Of course, by then we'll be looking forward to the playoffs and at the moment the Kings odds of making it that far aren't great. He'll finish with 12 goals and 16 points in 42 contests.
Wed, Apr 8, 2015 06:29:00 PM

Tanner Pearson (ankle) resumed light skating about a month ago and he participated in a full practice March 22.

However, he doubts that he will be back in the Kings' lineup until at least the playoffs. "I'm hoping for playoffs, for sure, but I think the [regular] season's very optimistic right now. But we’ll go day-by-day, as we've been doing for how long it's been, and hopefully we get improvement." He was hurt in a collision with the end boards following a hit from Winnipeg’s Jay Harrison back in January and he was expected to be sidelined for three-plus months. In 42 games this season, Pearson has 12 goals, 16 points and a plus-14 rating.
Mon, Apr 6, 2015 07:53:00 PM

Tanner Pearson, who is dealing with a left fibula injury, inked a two-year, $2.8 million contract extension on Thursday.

Pearson was scheduled to become a restricted free agent this summer. He has 12 goals and 16 points in 42 contests in 2014-15. He's been unavailable since Jan. 10 and he might not return before the end of the regular season.
