Jeff Carter (ankle) will reportedly miss at least six-to-eight weeks.

Los Angeles announced that Carter is out indefinitely after undergoing surgery on Thursday. He suffered a skate cut during Wednesday's game. The cut reportedly damaged a tendon in his ankle, but it's not his Achilles' tendon.

Derek Forbort has agreed to a two-year, $5.05 million contract extension.

Forbort is in the final season of a two-year, $1.3 million deal. If he didn't re-sign then he could have become a restricted free agent this summer. He has two assists in six games this season.

Brooks Laich has signed a one-year, two-way deal with the Los Angeles Kings.

Laich took part in Los Angeles' training camp, but didn't secure a contract heading into the regular season. He continued to skate with the team in the hopes of landing a deal and that's happened now that the Kings have lost Jeff Carter indefinitely to a leg injury. Laich can earn $650,000 annually at the NHL level or $50,000 in the minors.

Brooks Laich will reportedly sign with the Los Angeles Kings soon.

Laich participated in the Kings' training camp on a tryout basis. He's continued to skate with the Kings after the preseason concluded despite the fact that he didn't have a contract. Now that Jeff Carter is out indefinitely with a leg injury, it seems Los Angeles will sign him.

Jeff Carter's leg was cut by a skate during Wednesday's game and he's had surgery as a result.

Carter is out indefinitely, but beyond that we don't have a timetable for him. There was an earlier report that suggested that the skate cut caused tendon damage. He has three assists in six games this season. We wish him the best in his recovery.

Jeff Carter's injury is reportedly a cut that might have been deep enough to result in tendon damage.

Carter was hurt during Wednesday's game and left the contest early as a result. After the contest a team source said he was "going to be a little while." This all sounds pretty bad, but we'll wait for official word from the Kings.

Jeff Carter left Wednesday night's game against Montreal early because of a lower-body injury.

Carter logged just 6:55 of ice time before leaving the contest. Coach John Stevens said that Carter needed to be evaluated further and an update on his status could come Thursday. A team source said, "Going to be a little while" when mentioning the severity of the injury, which isn't an optimistic outlook. We will keep you posted when the Kings state something official on the matter.

Oscar Fantenberg registered an assist in the Kings' 5-1 win against Montreal on Wednesday.

Fantenberg has now recorded a point in each of his last three games. That brings him up to three assists in six contests in 2017-18. The 26-year-old rookie defenseman had three goals and 23 points in 44 KHL contests last season.
Oct 19 - 4:28 AM

Jake Muzzin is on a five-game point streak.

Muzzin kept that run going by registering an assist Wednesday night. He has a goal and five points in six games this season.
Oct 19 - 4:27 AM

Adrian Kempe scored three goals with an assist, a plus-4 rating, a blocked shot and a hit in Wednesday's 5-1 win against the Canadiens.

Kempe, Mike Cammalleri and Trevor Lewis shined all night, combining for 10 points (five goals and five assists). It was Kempe's first-career NHL hat trick to help L.A. to its best six-game home start in club history. Kempe entered the game with just two goals and six points over his first 30 NHL games, so don't get terribly excited and add him to a fantasy roster just yet.
Oct 19 - 3:33 AM

Mike Cammalleri posted two goals with two assists and a plus-3 rating in 14:01 of ice time Wednesday against Montreal.

It seems like old times for Cammy in L.A. He posted the first of his two 80-point NHL campaigns in Los Angeles back in 2006-07 during his first tour of duty wearing the crown. While he has settled into being more of a 35-40 point type player in the NHL in recent seasons, this performance reminded fans of halcyon days.
Oct 19 - 3:30 AM

Jonathan Quick allowed one goal on 37 shots in Wednesday's 5-1 victory against the visiting Canadiens.

Quick moved to 4-0-1 with a 1.59 goals-against average and a stellar .950 save percentage through five outings. He had the one hiccup against the Flames last Wednesday, but outside of that appearance he has been a bona fide No. 1 fantasy backstop across all formats.
Oct 19 - 3:27 AM

Jonathan Quick is expected to be between the pipes on Wednesday night as the Los Angeles Kings host the Montreal Canadiens.

Quick is 3-0-1 with a 1.74 goals-against average and a .943 save percentage so far this season. The Kings have yet to lose in regulation but face a hungry Canadiens team that hasn't won since defeating the Sabres in their season opener. Quick looks to rebound from an injury-riddled 2016-2017 season, and seems in fine form so far this year.
Oct 18 - 7:07 PM

Justin Auger might make his NHL debut on Wednesday.

As previously reported, Auger was summoned on Tuesday. Based on the practice lines, it looks like Auger will serve on a line with Michael Cammalleri and Adrian Kempe. The 23-year-old forward isn't expected to have any fantasy value in standard leagues.
Oct 18 - 5:07 AM

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.
