Jordan Subban hasn't been able to make his debut with the AHL's Ontario Reign due to an upper-body injury.

Los Angeles acquired Subban from the Vancouver Canucks in exchange for Nic Dowd. The good news is that Subban's injury is believed to be minor. The 22-year-old defenseman had five assists in 16 AHL games with the Utica Comets prior to the trade.

Jonathan Quick allowed five goals on 26 shots in Tuesday's 5-1 loss to the New Jersey Devils.

That puts his six-game winning streak to bed. The Devils jumped out to a 4-0 lead heading into the third period and they never looked back. The loss drops Quick's record to 15-9-1 on the season. He'll enter his next start with a 2.31 goals-against-average and a .926 save percentage.

Torrey Mitchell scored his first goal as a member of the Los Angeles Kings on Tuesday night.

Unfortunately for the Kings, it was the only offense they could muster in a 5-1 loss to the New Jersey Devils. Mitchell was acquired from the Montreal Canadiens late last month. Don't expect him to carry any fantasy value going forward. This was also his first point of the season.
Dec 12 - 9:48 PM

Jussi Jokinen will be a healthy scratch in Tuesday's game against the New Jersey Devils.

Jokinen was acquired from the Oilers earlier this season. He has one goal and three assists in 27 games this season. Andy Andreoff and Oscar Fantenberg will also serve as healthy scratches in this one.

Adrian Kempe (illness) appears to be good to go on Tuesday night.

Kempe skated alongside Marian Gaborik and Trevor Lewis during pregame line rushes after he missed the morning session.
Dec 12 - 6:46 PM

Kyle Clifford has been activated from injured reserve.

It looks like Clifford could be back in the lineup on Tuesday night after he missed 28 games with an upper-body injury. He has one assist in three games with Los Angeles this year.

Adrian Kempe (illness) didn't practice on Tuesday morning.

It's unclear if he will be able to play against New Jersey, but a determination on his status should closer to puck drop. "He was a little ill on the plane yesterday," coach John Stevens said. "Just had him stay at home here. Little bit of an appetite back, so we'll see where he's at. Just left him home here to try and get some rest – or, at the hotel, rather."

Jonathan Quick is expected to start Tuesday night at New Jersey.

Quick was the first goalie off the ice at the team's morning skate. He has won his last six starts and he has allowed two goals or less in seven straight appearances. Quick has a 15-8-1 record with a 2.18 goals-against average and a .930 save percentage this campaign.

Kyle Clifford (upper body) should be able to rejoin the Kings in the near future.

"Cliffy’s close. He’s getting close," Kings coach John Stevens said. "He’s fully integrated into practice. Started to get some more reps in and more battle stuff today. I haven’t talked to the trainers yet, but he’s definitely getting close." We still don't have a precise target date yet, but it's possible that Clifford will return at some point during the Kings' four-game road trip, which begins on Tuesday. Clifford has an assist in three games in 2017-18.

Marian Gaborik is just two games shy of 1,000.

If all goes well, Gaborik will reach the milestone on Friday against the Rangers. That would be a nice touch given that he spent parts of four seasons with New York. "It’s definitely a milestone," Gaborik said. "To play 1,000 games is definitely special. It looks like it falls on to play in New York. That’s one of the best places to play in the world. And it’ll be cool." Reaching 1,000 games is always a great accomplishment, but it's particularly noteworthy for Gaborik given all the injuries he's had to overcome over the years. He didn't even make his season debut until Nov. 24 due to a knee injury and he hasn't logged more than 60 games in a season since 2014-15.

Drew Doughty isn't concerning himself with whether or not the Kings have won over critics with their success.

Los Angeles wasn't a favorite of many going into the season, but the Kings hold a 20-8-3 record and is red hot with its eight-game winning streak. Still, that's led to questions about how legitimate a contender they are. "Yeah, you know, obviously, people are still going to doubt us," Doughty said. "There’s always going to be people who don’t believe in the success we’re having, but we’re not too worried about those other people. We believe in each other in here and we know that what we’ve done isn’t by mistake and it’s come through hard work and improving every single day." The Kings do have another noteworthy test ahead of them. Their next four games are on the road against New Jersey, the Rangers, the Islanders, and Philadelphia. With the exception of the Flyers, all of those teams have winning records so far and even Philadelphia has been looking tougher lately thanks to its three-game winning streak.

Anze Kopitar had a goal and an assist Saturday and has a five game points streak.

The center has had a resurgence this season as he is up to 16 goals and 38 points in 31 games after picking up only 12 goals and 52 points in 76 games last year. He has four goals and 10 points in his latest five and is definitely a must-start in all formats of fantasy. The lone blip was that he won only seven-of-19 faceoffs against the Hurricanes.
Dec 10 - 6:13 AM

Tyler Toffoli scored once and added an assist Saturday.

Toffoli is off to a great start with 14 goals and 22 points in 31 games this season with a plus-12 rating. He had only 16 goals last season in 63 games and looks like he is about to shatter that mark. Toffoli has 98 career NHL goals as well as 99 assists so he is in line to hit some milestones in the near future.
Dec 10 - 6:09 AM

Jonathan Quick made 32 saves on 34 shots in a 3-2 overtime win over the Carolina Hurricanes on Saturday night.

Quick has now won his last six decisions and hasn't allowed more than two goals in that span. The netminder has a record of 15-8-1 with a 2.18 goals-against-average and a .930 save percentage.
Dec 10 - 1:34 AM

Tanner Pearson scored the overtime winner and an assist in a 3-2 OT win over the Carolina Hurricanes on Saturday.

Pearson has scored in back-to-back games for the first time this season. Tonight's two-point effort was his third multi-point game of the season. Pearson has six goals and 19 points in 31 games this season.
