Anze Kopitar has been adapting to his new role as the Kings' captain.

"I wouldn’t say a burden. It was definitely a change. It’s definitely some adjustments that I needed to make," Kopitar said. "I’m still learning. I don’t know if you can learn that overnight. It’s been, not a burden, but a new challenge that I think I’m in the process of getting the handle of it and I’ll get there." Kopitar feels that wearing the C hasn't hurt his game, but his production certainly has dropped off this season. He has 11 goals and 46 points in 69 contests after recording 74 points in 2015-16.
