Senators' Joonas Korpisalo: Joining Ottawa
Korpisalo signed a five-year, $20 million deal with the Senators on Saturday.
Korpisalo, one of the top goaltending options available, will earn an AAV of $4 million. The 29-year-old netminder will likely pencil in as Ottawa's starter after Cam Talbot signed with the Kings. Korpisalo is coming off a solid campaign where he went 18-14-4 with a .915 save percentage in 39 games between the Blue Jackets and the Kings.... See More ... See Less
Kings' Joonas Korpisalo: Gives up five goals in loss
Korpisalo stopped 21 of 26 shots in Saturday's 5-4 loss to the Oilers in Game 6.
Korpisalo wasn't able to save the Kings' season, turning in a fairly lackluster performance in the loss. The 29-year-old finished the first round on a three-game losing streak, and he gave up 22 tallies on 203 shots in the series. Korpisalo's set to be an unrestricted free agent this summer, and his strong play -- aside from his last three appearances -- will likely put him in high demand.... See More ... See Less
Kings' Joonas Korpisalo: Starting Saturday
Korpisalo will defend the home crease versus Edmonton in Game 6 on Saturday, Zach Dooley of the Kings' official site reports.
Korpisalo has started all five games in the series, which the Kings trail 3-2. He was strong early on, giving up eight goals on 116 shots in the first three games, but he has stopped only 52 of 61 shots in the past two games. Korpisalo was great with the Kings in the regular season after his trade from Columbus at the deadline, going 7-3-1 with a 2.13 GAA and .921 save percentage. He will have to be at the top of his game in order to defeat Connor McDavid, Leon Draisaitl and the Oilers in Game 6.... See More ... See Less
Kings' Joonas Korpisalo: Pulled in second period
Korpisalo gave up four goals on 19 shots in Tuesday's 6-3 loss to the Oilers in Game 5.
Korpisalo was pulled just over midway through the second period. Pheonix Copley stopped six of eight shots in relief of Korpisalo -- it's not the kind of effort that would suggest a change in the goaltending dynamic for the Kings. Whoever starts Game 6 on Saturday will be looking to save the season, as the Kings are now down 3-2 in the series. Korpisalo has allowed 17 goals on 177 shots across five games.... See More ...

Kings' Joonas Korpisalo: First off ahead of Game 5
Korpisalo was the first goalie off the ice at the morning skate, Zach Dooley of LA Kings Insider reports, indicating he will start Game 5 in Edmonton on Tuesday.
Korpisalo is coming off a 37-save effort in Sunday's 5-4 overtime loss to the Oilers. He has a 2-2 record this postseason, having allowed 13 goals on 158 shots. Edmonton ranks first in the opening round of the playoffs with 39.8 shots per game.... See More ... See Less
Kings' Joonas Korpisalo: Overwhelmed by Oilers
Korpisalo stopped 37 of 42 shots in a 5-4 overtime loss to Edmonton in Game 4 on Sunday.
It wasn't Korpisalo's best outing, but it was also the third time in four contests that he's faced at least 40 shots, so he could probably use a bit more help from his defense. With LA up 3-0 after one period, Korpisalo faced a staggering 20 shots in the second frame, and the contest was consequently tied at 3-3 by the second intermission. The 28-year-old has a 3.00 GAA and a .917 save percentage in four playoff appearances this year.... See More ... See Less
Kings' Joonas Korpisalo: Expected to start Sunday
Korpisalo is expected to face the Oilers at home Sunday, Zach Dooley of the Kings' official site reports.
Korpisalo has been terrific so far this postseason, winning two of the first three games while posting a .931 save percentage. His Game 3 win at home was the best performance so far; he turned aside 38 of 40 shots in the overtime win. Korpisalo has gone 9-4-1 with a 2.22 GAA in 14 regular season and playoff games since joining the Kings.... See More ... See Less
Kings' Joonas Korpisalo: Helps LA take Game 3
Korpisalo saved 38 of 40 shots in a 3-2 overtime victory over Edmonton in Game 3 on Friday.
The Kings are up 2-1 in their first-round series against the Oilers, and Korpisalo deserves a fair amount of the credit for that. While he has allowed eight goals over those three contests, the goaltender has been challenged regularly by Edmonton's high-powered offense, resulting in Korpisalo facing 116 shots. The Kings acquired him from Columbus on March 1 in the hopes that he would provide them with this kind of goaltending. The 28-year-old has more than delivered, also providing a 2.13 GAA and a .921 save percentage in 11 regular-season appearances with LA since the trade.... See More ... See Less
Kings' Joonas Korpisalo: Facing Oilers
Korpisalo will defend the home crease versus Edmonton on Friday, Eric Stephens of The Athletic reports.
Korpisalo has been great against the NHL's top scoring team in the regular season, holding the Oilers to six goals on 76 shots. Korpisalo was 7-3-1 with a 2.13 GAA and .921 save percentage after his trade from Columbus to LA. Korpisalo was 2-1-0 versus Edmonton this season, giving up nine goals on 120 shots.... See More ...

Kings' Joonas Korpisalo: Yields three goals in loss
Korpisalo stopped 33 of 36 shots in Wednesday's 4-2 loss to the Oilers in Game 2. The fourth goal was an empty-netter.
Korpisalo has been busy through two playoff games, but he's been solid with 70 saves on 76 shots. The 28-year-old saw his three-game winning streak end Wednesday. It appears he's earned a spot as the Kings' top goalie, though if he falters, Pheonix Copley could get a chance to right the ship. The Kings will look to take care of business on home ice in Friday's Game 3.... See More ... See Less
Kings' Joonas Korpisalo: Set to face Oilers
Korpisalo is slated to start on the road against Edmonton on Wednesday, according to Zach Dooley of the Kings' official site.
Korpisalo did well against Edmonton in Monday's series opener, turning aside 37 of 40 shots en route to a 4-3 overtime victory. The Oilers will be a tough opponent to continue to contain though, given that they averaged a league-best 3.96 goals per game in the regular season. During the 2022-23 campaign, Korpisalo posted an 18-14-4 record, 2.87 GAA and .914 save percentage in 39 outings.... See More ... See Less
Kings' Joonas Korpisalo: Steady after rough first period
Korpisalo stopped 38 of 41 shots in Monday's 4-3 overtime win over the Oilers.
Korpisalo had a rough first period, allowing two goals before ultimately settling in. The Kings scored three times in the third, but Leon Draisaitl also had a goal to force overtime, where Alex Iafallo was the hero. This was Korpisalo's third straight win, and he's allowed six goals on 85 shots in that span. It's unclear if the Kings will alternate between Korpisalo and Pheonix Copley as they did for much of the time after the trade deadline or if they'll opt to ride the hot hand in the first round. Game 2 is set for Wednesday.... See More ... See Less
Kings' Joonas Korpisalo: First off ahead of Game 1
Korpisalo was the first goalie off the ice at the morning skate, Ryan Rishaug of TSN reports, indicating he will start Game 1 in Edmonton on Monday.
Korpisalo, who also occupied the starter's crease during Monday's session, posted a 7-3-1 record with a 2.13 GAA and a .921 save percentage in 11 games with the Kings this season. He went 2-1-0 versus the Oilers in 2022-23, stopping 111 of 120 shots.... See More ... See Less
Kings' Joonas Korpisalo: Wins regular-season finale
Korpisalo stopped 21 of 24 shots in Thursday's 5-3 win over the Ducks.
Korpisalo did alright, while Adrian Kempe powered the offense with a hat trick and an assist to get the win. Korpisalo won three of his last four outings and started the Kings' last two games, though it's unclear if that's a signal that he'll be the starter heading into their first-round series versus the Oilers. The 28-year-old netminder closed out the regular season at 18-14-4 with a 2.87 GAA and a .915 save percentage in 39 appearances.... See More ... See Less
Kings' Joonas Korpisalo: Leaves ice first Thursday
Korpisalo was the first goalie to exit the ice Thursday, Zach Dooley of the Kings' official site reports, indicating he'll be in goal on the road against the Ducks.
Korpisalo has been splitting the workload of late, appearing in 10 of the club's last 18 contests in which he posted a 6-3-1 record and 2.03 GAA. At this point, it remains unclear whether Korpisalo or Pheonix Copley will get the nod for Game 1 of the postseason and could consider splitting the workload between the duo.... See More ... See Less
