The Los Angeles Kings will scratch Kurtis MacDermid tonight.

In his place will be Oscar Fantenberg. Joining MacDermid in the press box will be Andy Andreoff and Jonny Brodzinski. MacDermid has only four points in 25 games this season.

The Los Angeles Kings will start Darcy Kuemper tonight against the New York Islanders.

With the Kings on the second half of a back-to-back, they have elected to go with their backup goaltender. Kuemper has been brilliant so far this season with a 5-0-2 record, 1.88 goals against average and .941 save percentage.

Darcy Kuemper is the Kings' probable starter Saturday night against the Islanders.

Although Jonathan Quick has an outstanding 5-1-2 career record against the Islanders with a 1.59 GAA, it will likely be Kuemper between the pipes in the second game of back-to-back contests for the Kings. Los Angeles won't hold a morning skate, so a starter may not be confirmed until close to game time. For the season Kuemper has been brilliant as the Kings' backup posting a 5-0-2 record with a 1.88 GAA and a .941 save percentage.

Jonathan Quick allowed three goals on 27 shots in Friday's 4-2 loss to the New York Rangers.

Since winning six consecutive starts, Quick has now dropped back-to-back games. He's given up eight goals in those two losses. The Kings netminder now owns a 2.33 goals-against-average and a .924 save percentage this season. He'll head into his next game with a 15-10-1 record.

Marian Gaborik found the back of the net in Friday's 4-2 loss to the New York Rangers.

Gaborik entered the Rangers zone on a two-on-one with teammate Jussi Jokinen, but he decided to shoot the puck on goal. The shot ended up beating Henrik Lundqvist between the legs (it was a goal Lundqvist will definitely want to have back). Gaborik's tally tied the game at one, but the Rangers managed to come away with the win anyway. He also registered the primary assist on Torrey Mitchell's goal in the second frame. The Kings winger reached an important milestone tonight, as he played in his 1000th NHL game. Gaborik has five goals and three assists in 11 games this season.
Dec 15 - 9:49 PM

Andy Andreoff will be a healthy scratch in Friday's game against the New York Rangers.

Andreoff had been dealing with an upper-body injury, but he's healthy now. He has one goal and one assist in 22 games this season. Oscar Fantenberg and Jonny Brodzinski will also watch the game from the press box.

Jonathan Quick is expected to get the start in Friday's game against the New York Rangers.

Quick saw his personal six-game winning streak come to an end against New Jersey on Tuesday. He has a 15-9-1 record with a 2.30 goals-against-average and a .926 save percentage this season.

Jordan Subban sustained his upper-body injury before he was acquired by the Los Angeles Kings.

Subban hasn't been able to play yet for the Kings' AHL affiliate, Ontario Reign, as a result of the injury. The Kings knew that he was hurt though when they acquired Subban from the Vancouver Canucks in exchange for Nic Dowd last week. He's reportedly expected to be out for about two more weeks.

Jordan Subban hasn't been able to make his debut with the AHL's Ontario Reign due to an upper-body injury.

Los Angeles acquired Subban from the Vancouver Canucks in exchange for Nic Dowd. The good news is that Subban's injury is believed to be minor. The 22-year-old defenseman had five assists in 16 AHL games with the Utica Comets prior to the trade.
Dec 13 - 4:24 AM

Jonathan Quick allowed five goals on 26 shots in Tuesday's 5-1 loss to the New Jersey Devils.

That puts his six-game winning streak to bed. The Devils jumped out to a 4-0 lead heading into the third period and they never looked back. The loss drops Quick's record to 15-9-1 on the season. He'll enter his next start with a 2.31 goals-against-average and a .926 save percentage.
Dec 12 - 9:53 PM

Torrey Mitchell scored his first goal as a member of the Los Angeles Kings on Tuesday night.

Unfortunately for the Kings, it was the only offense they could muster in a 5-1 loss to the New Jersey Devils. Mitchell was acquired from the Montreal Canadiens late last month. Don't expect him to carry any fantasy value going forward. This was also his first point of the season.
Dec 12 - 9:48 PM

Jussi Jokinen will be a healthy scratch in Tuesday's game against the New Jersey Devils.

Jokinen was acquired from the Oilers earlier this season. He has one goal and three assists in 27 games this season. Andy Andreoff and Oscar Fantenberg will also serve as healthy scratches in this one.
