Alex Iafallo and linemates Anze Kopitar and Dustin Brown were all a plus-five Saturday.

Iafallo has come out of nowhere to land on the Kings top line. He had a couple of helpers on Saturday and now has three assists with a plus-nine rating in seven games. Pick him up if you need help in the plus/minus category.

Oscar Fantenberg picked up an assist in his fourth straight game.

The 26-year-old Swedish defenseman is playing in his first NHL season after spending his entire career in Europe. If you are looking for a defenseman who is scoring, then Fantenberg should be on your radar.

Jonathan Quick allowed four goals on 36 shots in Saturday's 6-4 win over the Columbus Blue Jackets.

The game was tied at four heading into the third period. Los Angeles managed to score twice over the final 20 minutes and Quick was able to shut the door on the Jackets. The victory improves Quick's record to 5-0-1 this season. He'll head into his next start with a sparkling 1.99 goals-against-average and a .939 save percentage. He's one of the top fantasy players at his position right now.

Anze Kopitar scored two goals and an assist in Saturday's 6-4 win over the Columbus Blue Jackets.

Kopitar's first goal was scored at the 6:51 mark of the first period, and it tied the game one. He also helped set up Jake Muzzin's second-period marker, which tied the game at three. Kopitar's second goal proved to be the game-winner, as he gave Los Angeles a 5-4 lead in the third frame. The Kings captain finished the night with a plus-5 rating, three shots on goal and he managed to win 68 percent of his faceoffs. He has six goals and 11 points in seven games this season. Teammate Dustin Brown had a four-point night (one goal, three assists) in the victory.

Jonathan Quick will be between the pipes for Los Angeles against the Columbus Blue Jackets on Saturday night.

Quick is off to a great start with a 4-0-1 record and 1.59 goals-against-average. He'll be in a great goalie duel against Sergei Bobrovsky against the Columbus Blue Jackets, but you've got to ride him if he's your number one option. He's got a lifetime record of 14-6-0 against Columbus.

Jeff Carter (ankle) will reportedly miss at least six-to-eight weeks.

Los Angeles announced that Carter is out indefinitely after undergoing surgery on Thursday. He suffered a skate cut during Wednesday's game. The cut reportedly damaged a tendon in his ankle, but it's not his Achilles' tendon.

Derek Forbort has agreed to a two-year, $5.05 million contract extension.

Forbort is in the final season of a two-year, $1.3 million deal. If he didn't re-sign then he could have become a restricted free agent this summer. He has two assists in six games this season.

Brooks Laich has signed a one-year, two-way deal with the Los Angeles Kings.

Laich took part in Los Angeles' training camp, but didn't secure a contract heading into the regular season. He continued to skate with the team in the hopes of landing a deal and that's happened now that the Kings have lost Jeff Carter indefinitely to a leg injury. Laich can earn $650,000 annually at the NHL level or $50,000 in the minors.

Brooks Laich will reportedly sign with the Los Angeles Kings soon.

Laich participated in the Kings' training camp on a tryout basis. He's continued to skate with the Kings after the preseason concluded despite the fact that he didn't have a contract. Now that Jeff Carter is out indefinitely with a leg injury, it seems Los Angeles will sign him.

Jeff Carter's leg was cut by a skate during Wednesday's game and he's had surgery as a result.

Carter is out indefinitely, but beyond that we don't have a timetable for him. There was an earlier report that suggested that the skate cut caused tendon damage. He has three assists in six games this season. We wish him the best in his recovery.
Oct 19 - 3:21 PM

Jeff Carter's injury is reportedly a cut that might have been deep enough to result in tendon damage.

Carter was hurt during Wednesday's game and left the contest early as a result. After the contest a team source said he was "going to be a little while." This all sounds pretty bad, but we'll wait for official word from the Kings.

Jeff Carter left Wednesday night's game against Montreal early because of a lower-body injury.

Carter logged just 6:55 of ice time before leaving the contest. Coach John Stevens said that Carter needed to be evaluated further and an update on his status could come Thursday. A team source said, "Going to be a little while" when mentioning the severity of the injury, which isn't an optimistic outlook. We will keep you posted when the Kings state something official on the matter.
Oct 19 - 8:32 AM

Oscar Fantenberg registered an assist in the Kings' 5-1 win against Montreal on Wednesday.
