Kurtis MacDermid will be in the Kings' lineup Saturday night against the Sharks.

We tell you this because when the Kings are fully healthy on defense (they are not now as Christian Folin is out with an injury) MacDermid is competing with Oscar Fantenberg for the last spot on the team's blueline. MacDermid has tremendous penalty-minute and hit potential which makes him valuable in certain fantasy pools. Just make sure you review the health of all LA blueliners before putting him in your lineup.
