The Los Angeles Kings have assigned Jonny Brodzinski to the minors.

The 24-year-old has suited up in three games this season and he's failed to record a point. He's more of a depth piece right now.
Oct 17 - 6:12 PM

The Los Angeles Kings have recalled Justin Auger from the AHL.

The 23-year-old has never played in an NHL game in his career. Auger has no points in three AHL games this season. He shouldn't pop up on your fantasy radar.

Jake Muzzin scored his first of the season Sunday.

It was a power play effort and it gives Muzzin a four game points streak. He is up to four points in five games after a poor 2016-17 season in which he had only 28 points. It was poor for him as he had 40 and 41 point seasons his previous two seasons. Look for him to return to that level this season.
Oct 16 - 8:22 AM

Anze Kopitar had a goal and an assist Sunday.

Kopitar is redeeming himself for his poor 2016-17 season in which he had only 12 goals and 52 points. He was held off the scoresheet in the opener but has been guns a blazing ever since with four goals and eight points in his last four games. He is a must start.
Oct 16 - 8:17 AM

Dustin Brown picked up an assist on Sunday to increase his points streak to four games.

Brown has not had a four game points streak since March 2013 so this is a significant boost to his game. Brown has four goals and seven points in the streak and has been fantasy relevant through the first 12 days of the NHL season. We are not counting on this fantasy boost to continue but take it while it lasts.

Darcy Kuemper bested the Islanders in his Kings debut on Sunday night, a 3-2 victory for Los Angeles.

Kuemper made 23 saves on 25 shots as the Kings were able to withhold a late Isles rally to take the two points. The 27-year-old is 1-0 with a 2.00 goals against average and .920 save percentage this season.
Oct 16 - 2:06 AM

Drew Doughty helped lead the Kings to a 3-2 victory over the Islanders on Sunday night.

A shorthanded, game-winning goal in the final match of the fantasy week surely helped owners too. Doughty is off to a red hot start with two goals and five points in five games. He's surpassed the 50-point barrier only twice in his career.
Oct 16 - 1:58 AM

Darcy Kuemper will get his first start in Los Angeles on Sunday night.

Kuemper, who has spent his whole career with Minnesota, 41-34-14 all time with a 2.60 goals against average and .910 save percentage.

Oscar Fantenberg picked up his first NHL point of his career Saturday.

The defenseman picked up an assist on Tyler Toffoli's marker. The 26-year-old undrafted defenseman came over to the NHL this season after playing last season in the KHL and the previous three campaigns in the Swedish Elite League. He has played in all four games and seems to be a fixture on the Kings blueline. Look for 20-25 points from the blueliner.
Oct 15 - 8:36 AM

Alec Martinez picked up an assist in his season debut Saturday.

Martinez missed the first three games of the season with a lower body injury. The assist was the 100th of his NHL career. Martinez had 39 points last season so 35-40 points is within his wheelhouse in 2017-18. Get him in your lineup in leagues that use at least four blueliners.
Oct 15 - 8:30 AM

Dustin Brown scored for the third straight game on Saturday.

This is a different Brown than the player we have seen over the last four years. Brown has scored 118 points in his last four seasons in 323 games but this year the winger is off to a great start with four goals and six points in four games. He obviously will not keep up this pace but a 45-50 point season is not out of the question, especially if he can stick on a line with Anze Kopitar.
Oct 15 - 8:27 AM

Jonathan Quick stopped 23 of 25 shots in a 4-2 win over the Buffalo Sabres on Saturday.

Quick made what seemed like an impossible diving save on Seth Griffith when he just got enough of the puck with his stick to keep the Kings in the game. After injuries ruined his 2016-17 season, Quick looks to have re-established his game. The win improves his record to 3-0-1 with a 1.74 goals against average and a .943 save percentage.
Oct 15 - 1:35 AM

Drew Doughty picked up a goal and an assist in a 4-2 win over the Buffalo Sabres on Saturday night.

The Kings scored three power play goals, the final one being the game-winning goal by Doughty. Kopitar won a clean faceoff to Martinez who tee'd up Doughty for his first goal of the season. Dustin Brown, Tyler Toffoli and Tanner Pearson also found the back of the net. Doughty has three points in four games this season.
Oct 15 - 1:28 AM

The Los Angeles Kings have announced that they have activated Alec Martinez from injured reserve.

He took line rushed with Jake Muzzin at practice and should be in the lineup against the Buffalo Sabres tonight. He's worth rostering in fantasy leagues.

The Los Angeles Kings have announced that Kyle Clifford has been placed on injured reserve, retroactive from October 11.

Clifford sustained his upper-body injury during Wednesday's contest against the Calgary Flames. He has one point in three games. He should not be on any fantasy teams.
