Andy Andreoff has been recalled by the Los Angeles Kings after a two week conditioning stint in the AHL.

Andreoff played outstanding hockey in the two weeks as he had five goals and ten points in seven games with a plus-eight rating. Do not expect anywhere close to that at the NHL level. Andreoff was recalled just before midnight as the NHL roster freeze went into action over the Christmas season at 12 AM ET.

The Los Angeles Kings have placed defenseman Robyn Regehr on the injured reserve list with a hand injury.

Regehr is expected to miss two-three weeks so the move to the list was expected. H has five points and 27 penalty minutes in 30 games this season so he does not have a lot of fantasy value.

Jeff Schultz has been summoned back up to LA from AHL Manchester in the wake of Robyn Regehr's hand injury.

This will be Schultz's first regular season game as a King if gets in the lineup on Saturday, although he did play in seven scoreless playoff games in their 2014 Cup run. The steady defensive defenseman doesn't have a lot of fantasy value, but he can be counted on to block nearly a shot a game.

Robyn Regehr is dealing with a hand injury.

Regehr will be out for the next two-to-three weeks as a result. Assuming he misses just two weeks, Regehr will be unavailable for eight contests. He has five points and 27 penalty minutes in 30 games this season.

Dwight King scored a goal in a 6-4 victory against St. Louis on Thursday.

King has four goals and nine points in 32 games in 2014-15. He'll continue to provide Los Angeles with some secondary scoring, but he doesn't have enough offensive upside to warrant picking him up in standard leagues.

Jeff Carter recorded his fifth career four-point game on Thursday night as the Kings beat the Blues 6-4.

Carter's lone goal tied the game up at four just 20 seconds into the third period. Martin Brodeur simply couldn't get over into to prevent the one-timer from going in. Carter now leads the team in assists with 16 and points with 24 in 33 games this season. He has yet to have a five-point game.

Marian Gaborik started and completed the Kings' big 6-4 comeback win over the Blues on Thursday night.

After assisting on Kopitar's goal, he tied it up at three with just under four minutes left in the second period. That's right, Gabby was part of LA's first three goals. He now has nine goals and 14 points in 21 games this season.

Anze Kopitar set a new career high for most points in a game with five in LA's come-from-behind victory over St. Louis, 6-4.

Three other times Kopitar has recorded at least four points in a game, but on this night, he added a new notch to the belt. Only Dwight King went unassisted by the guiding his hand. Kopitar now sits tied for third with Drew Doughty on the team in scoring with 19 points.

Jonathan Quick let in three early goals to the Blues on Thursday night, but the Kings snatched victory from the jaws of defeat 6-4.

While the David Backes and Dmitrij Jaskin's goals to open the scoring were sick tips, Quick was beaten over the shoulder on stoppable shots by Kevin Shattenkirk and Jori Lehtera. Fortunately for Quick, Martin Brodeur was much worse at the other end. Quick stopped 24-28 in the effort.

Dustin Brown is looking forward to Thursday's rematch against the St. Louis Blues.

The Blues scored four unanswered goals in the third period to earn a 5-2 victory over Los Angeles on Tuesday. "I think if you're not excited about playing tomorrow, after what happened in St. Louis, then we have bigger issues," Brown said. "For me, I'm excited that we get to play them again. Especially the way they beat us and how the third period transpired last game. Like I said, if you're not excited to play them again, there's bigger issues." Kings coach Darryl Sutter pointed to the team's penalty kill as an area they need to improve upon going into this game. St. Louis capitalized on two of its three power-play opportunities on Tuesday.
Dec 18 - 9:17 AM

Justin Williams had an assist in a 5-2 loss Tuesday night.

Williams is heating up with at least a point in five of his last seven games. He has eight goals and 17 points in 31 contests in 2014-15.

Kings coach Darryl Sutter needs more from goaltender Jonathan Quick.

Quick stopped just 18 of 22 shots in a 5-2 loss to St. Louis on Tuesday. Los Angeles had a 2-1 lead going into the third period, but Quick allowed three goals on seven shots in the final 20 minutes. "It's not the same team. It's quite a bit different team on the back end," Sutter said. "We've said it all along. We need great goaltending." It's also worth noting that the Kings fired just one shot on goal in the third period, so there's plenty of blame to go around for this collapse.
Dec 17 - 8:44 AM

Marian Gaborik scored a pair of goals for the Kings in a 5-2 loss to St. Louis on Tuesday night.

Gaborik opened the scoring with a pair of first period tallies that put Los Angeles ahead, but he and his teammates were unable to get any more pucks behind Jake Allen in the contest. The talented winger has just 11 points in 20 games this season.
