Andy Andreoff was activated off I/R on Sunday. He did not dress for the game against Montreal.

Andreoff has not played since Oct. 30th, and his next chance to play will be on Thursday against Carolina. Through nine games he has eight PIMs and 17 hits.

The LA Kings have sent Teddy Purcell down to AHL Ontario.

With Purcell down on the farm, the Kings will retrieve $950K of his $1.6M cap hit. The 31-year-old winger has been hampered by poor health and ineffective play all season. He posted just a pair of helpers in 12 games.
Dec 4 - 3:12 PM

Devin Setoguchi and Tom Gilbert will be scratched from Sunday's match with Montreal.

The 29-year-old winger has just three goals and seven points across 23 games this season, which unfortunately falls well short of the depth support hoped from him this season. Gilbert meanwhile has played just once since mid-November.

In a surprising twist, Dwight King (wife having baby) has returned to the team for Sunday's match with Montreal.

King has had another quality season from the depth charts. He's posted four goals and nine points with 38 hits in 24 games thus far.

Dwight King is away from the team to be with his wife, who gave birth to baby George on Saturday.

George King has a nice ring. Hey, that rhymes! Congratulations to the Kings on their newest member of the family. Consider him day-to-day.

It looks like Andy Andreoff's (thumb) time on I/R will be drawing to a close soon.

Andreoff has been out since Oct. 30th with a broken thumb, and is expected to be healthy enough to return within a week. Through nine games he has eight PIMs and 17 hits.
Dec 4 - 2:39 PM

Peter Budaj will be in net on Sunday against the Canadiens.

As if you expected otherwise. The veteran netminder has been excellent so far this season, posting a 12-7-1 record in relief of Jonathan Quick. Budaj boasts a 10:2 Quality Start to Really Bad Start ratio, he's also 5-2 with just 13 goals against versus Eastern foes this season.
Dec 4 - 2:37 PM

Teddy Purcell cleared waivers on Sunday.

However it's not yet clear what the next step will be for the veteran winger. He could stick around, be sent to AHL Ontario, be traded, have his contract terminated, or loaned abroad. Of course, it's the first two options that are most likely. We shall see.
Dec 4 - 12:55 PM

Anze Kopitar has only two goals in 19 games this season.

Hopefully the return of Marian Gaborik who had been out all season, will help Kopitar who has led the Kings in scoring in each of the last nine seasons. Kopitar got off to a slow start last season as well and the upper body injury that kept him out of the lineup for five games.
Dec 4 - 7:49 AM

Teddy Purcell has been placed on waivers by the Kings.

And thus a dreadful season for Purcell takes another sour turn. The 31-year-old winger has been hampered by poor health and ineffective play all season. He posted just a pair of helpers in 12 games. Purcell carries a $1.6 hit to the cap, and the Kings will be spared just over half of it should he go unclaimed and sent to the AHL.
Dec 3 - 12:32 PM

Marian Gaborik registered an assist in the Kings' 4-3 victory over Arizona on Thursday.

Gaborik was playing in his third game since returning from a broken foot. So far he's seen his ice time rise in every contest to the point where he logged 16:17 minutes on Thursday. He's also recorded two assists in that span.
Dec 2 - 11:15 AM

Anze Kopitar picked up a pair of assists in the Kings 4-3 win over Arizona.

The apples snapped a two game pointless streak for the all-star. He has had a slow start to the season with just 11 points in 19 games. He started slow last season too though and really came on in the second half. We would bet for more of the same as he is still in the prime of his career. Get him in your lineups.
Dec 2 - 3:31 AM

Jordan Nolan scored twice to lead the LA Kings to a 4-3 win over Arizona on Thursday.

The goals were Nolan's first two of the season as he is not a regular offensive contributor right now. Trevor Lewis and Dwight King scored the other goals for the Kings who recovered after allowing two goals on the first six shots of the game.
Dec 2 - 1:47 AM

Kings backup Jeff Zatkoff stopped 25-of-26 shots in relief, backstopping Los Angeles to a come from behind 4-3 win.

Starter Peter Budaj allowed two goals on six shots and was lifted in favour of Zatkoff to start the second period. The win was the first of the year for the Zatkoff who has appeared in five games. He's 1-3 with a 3.04 GAA and .896 save percentage.
Dec 2 - 1:36 AM

Peter Budaj allowed two goals on six shots and got the early hook in Thursday's game against Arizona.

He allowed a goal on the first shot of the game, the third consecutive game the Kings have allowed a goal on the first shot of the game according to Kings insider Jon Rosen. Both goals allowed by Budaj were off the stick of Martin Hanzal and both were on power-plays. Jeff Zatkoff drew into the game.
