Andrew Crescenzi has been assigned to the minors.

Crescenzi skated in the first two games of his NHL career this week. He made his debut against Vancouver last Tuesday.
Nov 19 - 1:33 PM

Jussi Jokinen picked up an assist in his second straight game Saturday.

After getting only one assist in 14 games for the Oilers, Edmonton traded him on Tuesday to the Kings where he has points in both games thus far. The veteran loves LA.

Anze Kopitar's 10 game scoring streak is no more.

The center failed to garner a point on Saturday. He is having a comeback season with nine goals and 23 points in 20 games after just 12 goals and 52 points in 72 games last season. He is a must start.
Nov 19 - 8:00 AM

Jonny Brodzinski scored his first NHL goal Saturday.

This is Brodzinski's second tour of duty with the Kings this season as he was pointless in three games earlier in the season. He is the fifth King to score his first of his career this season, joining Kurtis MacDermid, Michael Amadio, Alex Iafallo and Oscar Fantenberg. Congratulations on the feat to Jonny Brodzinski.

Tyler Toffoli scored a goal and registered an assist in a 4-0 win over Florida on Saturday.

Toffoli's marker was the first of the game, so it also counts as the game-winner. Andy Andreoff, Jonny Brodzinski, and Trevor Lewis each found the back of the net for the Kings. Dustin Brown, Nic Dowd, Jussi Jokinen, Tanner Pearson, Drew Doughty, and Adrian Kempe each recorded an assist on Saturday.
Nov 18 - 6:47 PM

Darcy Kuemper stopped all 24 Panthers shots in the Kings' 4-0 win over Florida Saturday afternoon.

Kuemper was playing in just his fifth game this season, but he's made the most of his limited opportunities. With this victory he now has a 3-0-1 record and has held his opponents to two or fewer goals in three of his four starts.
Nov 18 - 6:42 PM

Nic Dowd could draw into the Kings' lineup Saturday afternoon against Florida.

He practised alongside Jussi Jokinen and Jonny Brodzinski on the Kings' rought unit on Friday and looks to be a good bet to dress for Saturday's matinee. Dowd has no fantasy value.
Nov 18 - 12:01 PM

Tyler Toffoli has swaped spots with Trevor Lews in the Kings' lineup.

That's not good news for Toffoli owners as he will now be skating on the team's third line alongside Nick Shore and Andy Andreoff instead of the Kings' second unit alongside Tanner Pearson and Adrian Kempe. We're not sure how long this shuffle will last but for now keep Toffoli's role in mind when determining if he is rosterable.
Nov 18 - 11:59 AM

Jonathan Quick is the Kings' probable starter for Saturday afternoon's contest against the Panthers.

The Kings are on a four-game losing streak and Quick will be looking to reverse that trend. Overall, his record is 9-6-1 and he sports a 2.31 GAA and .930 SP. The game starts at 4:00 pm ET so make sure you have Quick active early if you intend on having him in your lineup.
Nov 18 - 11:55 AM

Anze Kopitar's point streak reached 10 games on Thursday.

Kopitar registered an assist in Los Angeles' 2-1 loss to Boston. This is the longest point streak of Kopitar's career. He has nine goals and 23 points in 19 contests in 2017-18.
Nov 17 - 4:41 AM

Jussi Jokinen made his Los Angeles Kings debut on Thursday.

Jokinen registered an assist, but the Kings fell 2-1 to the Bruins. Jokinen had a decent 13:39 minutes of ice time in his first game with Los Angeles, including 3:38 minutes with the man advantage. He's worth keeping an eye on to see if the Kings continue to use him that heavily in power-play situations.
Nov 17 - 4:39 AM

Jonathan Quick is expected to get the start against Boston on Thursday.

He'll be looking to snap a three-game losing skid. Quick enters the game with a 9-5-1 record. He has a 2.32 goals-against-average and a .930 save percentage this season.
Nov 16 - 6:38 PM

Kyle Clifford (upper body) has started to skate.

There are still hurdles Clifford has to overcome before he rejoins the Kings, like taking part in a practice, but this is an encouraging sign. He last played on Oct. 11.
Nov 16 - 2:36 PM

Jussi Jokinen took part in his first practice with the Kings on Thursday.

Based on the line rushes, it looks like Jokinen will be serving as a fourth liner alongside Andrew Crescenzi and Jonny Brodzinski. Los Angeles acquired Jokinen from Edmonton in exchange for Mike Cammalleri.
Nov 16 - 2:03 PM

Michael Amadio has been sent to the minors.

Amadio has a goal in eight games with the Kings. He'll return to AHL Ontario where he has two assists in five contests this season.
