Drew Doughty has seven points in his last seven games.

The reigning Norris Trophy winner got off to a slow start this season with six points in his first 18 games but has picked up the pace significantly of late. He has four goals and 13 points thus far and should be in someone's fantasy lineup.
Dec 5 - 8:24 AM

Drew Doughty now has points in three of his last five games.

Thanks the goal and assist he netted during Sunday's 5-4 shootout loss to Montreal, that is. The reigning Norris Trophy winner is up to four goals and 13 points in 25 games thus far.
Dec 4 - 6:42 PM

Jeff Carter netted his second two-point game in a week during Sunday's 5-4 shootout loss to Montreal.

Carter scored his 10th goals and boosted his points total up to 19 points through 24 games this season. Perhaps he's not quite so over the hill.
Dec 4 - 6:40 PM

Trevor Lewis picked up his fourth goal of the season during Sunday's 5-4 shootout loss to Montreal.

Lewis is now up to eight points in 25 games this season, which unfortunately is probably not enough to warrant a spot on your roster.
Dec 4 - 6:39 PM

Nick Shore scored his first goal of the season during Sunday's 5-4 shootout loss to Montreal.

Now through 24 games, the youngster has just five points. So we wouldn't expect much from him moving forward.
Dec 4 - 6:37 PM

Following his two-assist effort against Arizona on Thursday, LA's Captain put up a three-assist effort in the 5-4 shootout loss to Montreal.

Mark that six helpers over his last five games to boot. Very quickly his points are becoming commiserate with his talent level, now up to nine helpers and 11 points in 19 games.
Dec 4 - 6:35 PM

Petr Budaj wasn't quite able to lead the Kings to victory, as they fell to Montreal 5-4 in the shootout on Sunday.

Budaj stopped 26 of 30 shots, including three of five while on the kill. But he saved just two of four in the shootout for the loss. He falls to 12-7-2 with a .909 save percentage and a 2.23 GAA on the season.
Dec 4 - 6:33 PM

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.
Dec 4 - 3:15 PM

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.

Dec 4 - 3:00 PM

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.
Dec 4 - 2:45 PM

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.
