He will appear in court on Dec. 1. "Mr. Voynov is extremely disappointed that the district attorney's office elected to file charges," said Craig Renetzky, Voynov's attorney. "Mr. Voynov maintains his innocence and looks forward to clearing his name in court. We remain confident." Voynov hasn't played since Oct. 19 because of an indefinite suspension.

Marian Gaborik found the back of the net in a 5-2 win against the Florida Panthers.

Gaborik was slowed early this season due to injuries, but he's healthy now and seems to have found his rhythm. He has three goals and four points in his last five contests.

Dustin Brown scored in Los Angeles' 5-2 win over Florida on Tuesday.

It was Brown's 199th career goal. It might be a bit before he reaches the 200-goal mark though as he's scored just three times in 19 games this season.

Jonathan Quick stopped 30-of-32 shots fired his way in a 5-2 Kings win over Florida at the Staples Center on Tuesday night.

Quick made most of his quality saves in the third period where the Panthers mounted a brief comeback effort. The Kings number one guy now has three wins in his last four starts and hasn't lost a game in regulation in his last six. Not surprisingly, he holds a superb stat-line thus far highlighted by a .938 save percentage which is second in the NHL. His 9-3-4 record and 2.06 goals against average and two shutouts aren't too shabby either.

Jeff Carter notched his seventh goal of the season on the power-play and added an assist in the Kings 5-2 win over Florida on Tuesday.

Carter was one of 11 Kings players to factor in on the scoring in this blowout. Anze Kopitar and Brayden McNabb each picked up two assists while Marion Gaborik scored his third of the campaign. Even Matt Greene and Robyn Regehr got in on the action with rare goals.

NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman and Kings GM Dean Lombardi don't see eye-to-eye on the Slava Voynov cap situation.

Voynov has been suspended indefinitely in light of an alleged incident of domestic violence. Lombardi stands behind the NHL's decision to suspend him, but they have taken issue with the fact that Voynov's cap hit has stuck with the team over the duration of the suspension. "Every team has to manage its salary cap, right?" Bettman offered. "It's just the way it works." Lombardi believes this situation goes beyond what he should reasonably be expected to account for though. "[Bettman] says issue of cap relief not warranted and is just cap management," Lombardi said. "I need to create some space in case [a player] robs a bank."

Alec Martinez (finger) will be sidelined for about a week.

Martinez sustained the injury when he absorbed a shot during Thursday's game. All things concerned, that timetable is about as good as the Kings could have hoped for.
Nov 17 - 12:07 PM

Jake Muzzin picked up two assists on Saturday and now has a goal and seven points in 12 games.

Muzzin had a three game scoring streak halted on Thursday but picked up right where he left off as he now all seven points in his last five games. If he is on the waiver wire, Muzzin is a nice pickup at this time.
Nov 16 - 5:48 AM

Drew Doughty played over 30 minutes for the fifth time in the last six games.

Coach Darryl Sutter wants to limit Doughty's time on ice but decided to go with mostly five defensemen in the third and overtime periods as Jamie McBain saw only three shifts after the second stanza. Doughty picked up his eighth assist of the season on Saturday and now has nine points in 18 games.
Nov 16 - 5:45 AM

Tyler Toffoli's goal on Saturday was his fourth shorthanded effort of the season.

Toffoli leads the NHL in shorthanded goals and has done it in 18 games becoming the fastest since Simon Gagne who scored four in 15 games for the Flyers in 2008-09. Toffoli is having an outstanding fantasy season with eight goals and 18 points in 18 games with a plus-13 rating which is tie for third best in the NHL.
Nov 16 - 5:35 AM

There is no timetable for the return of Alec Martinez (broken finger) to the Los Angeles lineup.

Coach Darryl Sutter said that the surgery went well but he was unsure when Martinez would be back in the lineup. Martinez had two goals and seven points in 17 games before the injury.
Nov 16 - 5:29 AM

Robyn Regehr (lower body) returned to action on Saturday.

It was not a moment too soon for the Kings who are hurting on the blueline as Alec Martinez is out with a broken finger and Slava Voynov is suspended, which is placing a strain on the Kings salary cap as they are right up against it. Regehr supplied 16:08 strong blueline minutes as he had six hits in the game. He has only two assists in 15 games so he shouldn't be on your roster in standard pools.
Nov 16 - 2:07 AM

Jonathan Quick made 27 saves in Los Angeles' 3-2 overtime win over the Anaheim Ducks.

Quick was named the game's first star for his efforts. The 28-year-old hasn't lost a game in regulation in his last five starts (3-0-2). He now improves to 8-3-4 with a 2.06 goals-against-average and a .938 save percentage. He is an elite fantasy option between the pipes.
Nov 15 - 7:06 PM

Jarret Stoll scored the game-winning goal on the power play in Los Angeles' 3-2 overtime win over Anaheim.

Stoll's goal came with Ducks defenseman Hampus Lindholm in the box. The goal was Stoll's first of the season. The Kings were 0 for 18 on the power play coming into this game, and they managed to score not one, but two goals on the man advantage. The Kings haven't lost a game in regulation since November 2nd. Anze Kopitar (PP) and Tyler Toffoli (SH) also scored for Los Angeles.
Nov 15 - 6:58 PM

Jonathan Quick is the likely starter on Saturday as he was the first goalie off the ice in practice Saturday.

Quick played Wednesday in the 6-5 shootout loss to the Ducks as he kicked out 44 shots and Martin Jones was in net Thursday in a 2-0 loss to Dallas so it makes sense that Quick will get the net back. He is 7-3-4 with a 2.07 GAA and a .939 save percentage this season.
