Top Kings News

  • Kings' Trevor Lewis: Nabs helper Thursday

    Lewis registered an assist in Thursday's 5-1 win over the Canucks.

    Lewis snapped a six-game point drought when he assisted on Brandt Clarke's third-period tally. The 37-year-old Lewis has often played on the fourth line this season, but he got a little more usage Thursday with the Kings dressing 11 forwards and seven defensemen. He's up to 13 points, 99 shots on net, 60 hits and a plus-4 rating through 59 outings overall.

  • Kings' Quinton Byfield: Dishes pair of helpers

    Byfield registered two assists, two hits, two PIM and a plus-2 rating in Thursday's 5-1 win over the Canucks.

    Byfield has distributed four helpers over his last three games, and he ends February with 11 points in as many contests. The 21-year-old continues to show growth as 2023-24 progresses -- he's been over 20 minutes of ice time in three of the last four games, including a career-high 23:36 in Thursday's win. The 21-year-old is up to 46 points, 115 shots on net and a plus-17 rating through 57 appearances, mainly in a top-line role.

  • Kings' Brandt Clarke: Gets into lineup, scores

    Clarke scored a goal in Thursday's 5-1 win over the Canucks.

    The Kings opted to play seven defensemen Thursday, with Clarke stepping in for forward Arthur Kaliyev. While it's a positive Clarke played after sitting out two games as a healthy scratch, he saw a meager 7:06 of ice time in the blowout win, as interim head coach Jim Hiller didn't alter his regular defense pairings much. It's fair to say Clarke has earned more time with two goals, four assists, 29 shots on net and 20 blocked shots over 13 appearances this season, especially with all but one of those points coming in his last seven outings. If the Kings go back to six defensemen Sunday versus the Devils, it's unclear which one of Clarke, Jordan Spence, Andreas Englund or Jacob Moverare will come out of the lineup.

  • Kings' Trevor Moore: Earns two points Thursday

    Moore scored a goal, dished an assist, levied four hits, blocked two shots and went plus-2 in Thursday's 5-1 win over the Canucks.

    Moore helped out on Drew Doughty's opening tally before scoring the last goal of the game himself. With two goals over his last three games, Moore appears to have regained his scoring touch. He's had an impressive year in a top-six role with a career-best 23 goals while adding 17 assists, 186 shots on net, 59 hits and a plus-4 rating over 59 appearances.

  • Kings' Anze Kopitar: One of each in win

    Kopitar scored a goal on three shots, added a power-play assist and went plus-3 in a 5-1 win over the Canucks on Thursday.

    Kopitar's second-period tally ended up being the game-winner, and he also set up a Kevin Fiala insurance tally in the third. This was Kopitar's first multi-point effort since Jan. 13. In the 19 games in between, he was limited to nine points, six of which have come in the last eight contests. The star center is up to 50 points (17 on the power play), 104 shots on net, 52 blocked shots and a plus-9 rating through 59 appearances this season.

  • Kings' Kevin Fiala: Racks up three points in win

    Fiala scored a power-play goal on three shots, dished two assists and went plus-2 in Thursday's 5-1 win over the Canucks.

    Fiala earned his third multi-point effort in the last four games. He's got five goals and four assists over his last six outings, stepping up as the Kings deal with injuries to Viktor Arvidsson (lower body) and Adrian Kempe (upper body). Fiala is up to 52 points (23 on the power play), 160 shots on net, 44 hits, 52 PIM and a minus-5 rating through 59 appearances. He's capable of going on extended hot streaks, so fantasy managers should keep Fiala active until he cools off.

  • Kings' Drew Doughty: Shines in Thursday's win

    Doughty scored a goal on two shots, dished two assists and went plus-3 in Thursday's 5-1 win over the Canucks.

    Doughty opened the scoring in the first period and later assisted on goals by Anze Kopitar and Kevin Fiala, who scored on the power play in the third. The second helper was Doughty's 500th NHL assist. The 34-year-old defenseman struggled early in February but closed out the month with 10 points over his last eight games, including three multi-point efforts.

  • Kings' Cam Talbot: Plenty of help in win

    Talbot stopped 22 of 23 shots in Thursday's 5-1 win over the Canucks.

    Talbot has three wins in his last four outings, and he's given up just six goals in that span. The Kings' defense did him plenty of favors Thursday, keeping the slumping Canucks in check throughout the contest. Talbot is up to 17-14-5 with a 2.50 GAA and a .914 save percentage through 37 outings. The Kings' haven't completely turned things around, but both Talbot and David Rittich have played fairly well of late.

  • Kings' Cam Talbot: Slated to start

    Talbot is expected to start on the road versus the Canucks on Thursday, Russell Morgan of Hockey Royalty reports.

    Talbot allowed three goals on 36 shots in a 4-2 loss to the Flames on Tuesday, but he had won his previous two outings. Thursday's game will be a challenging one for Talbot, as the Canucks have scored 18 goals over their last six games, though they've won just once in that span.

  • Kings' Adrian Kempe: Is week-to-week

    Kempe (upper body) is considered week-to-week, but he's expected to return before the end of March, Darren Dreger of TSN reports Thursday.

    Kempe will miss his second straight game Thursday versus Vancouver. He has 19 goals, 51 points, 50 PIM and 81 hits in 57 outings in 2023-24. It remains to be seen if Kempe will end up on injured reserve.

  • Kings' Kevin Fiala: Goal, assist in loss

    Fiala recorded a goal and an assist in Tuesday's 4-2 loss to the Flames.

    Fiala set up Phillip Danault's opening tally in the second period before tying the game 2-2 later in the frame, backhanding a rebound over the glove of Jacob Markstrom. Fiala now has four goals and six points in his last five contests. He's up to 49 points (17 goals, 32 assists) through 58 games this season.

  • Kings' Cam Talbot: Falls to Calgary

    Talbot allowed three goals on 36 shots in Tuesday's 3-2 loss to the Flames.

    Talbot was solid for the most part Tuesday, blanking Calgary in the first period before surrendering a pair of goals within a minute in the second. Yegor Sharangovich would put the Flames ahead 3-2 with a tally in the third before Mikael Backlund added an empty-netter, sticking Talbot with the loss. The 36-year-old netminder had won consecutive outings prior to Tuesday's contest, allowing just two goals on 61 shots in that span. Overall, Talbot's now 16-14-5 with a .913 save percentage and 2.55 GAA this season.

  • Kings' Cam Talbot: In goal Tuesday

    Talbot will protect the road goal versus the Flames on Tuesday, Zach Dooley of the Kings' official site reports.

    Talbot will get the second half of a back-to-back after David Rittich took a 4-2 loss against the Oilers on Monday. Talbot has been pushing for more time lately -- he's allowed four goals over his last three appearances, winning both of his starts in that span. The Flames enter Tuesday on a three-game winning streak, having scored 15 goals in those contests.

  • Kings' Adrian Kempe: Done for trip

    Kempe (upper body) won't play for the remainder of the Kings' road trip after suffering an injury in Edmonton on Monday, Zach Dooley of the Kings' official site reports.

    Kempe was already ruled out for Tuesday's game in Calgary, and he'll also be unavailable for Thursday's contest versus the Canucks with this latest update. The 27-year-old's absence will have a ripple effect on the Kings' lineup. Pierre-Luc Dubois is expected to move up to the top line as a winger, while Blake Lizotte and Alex Turcotte seem set to serve as bottom-six centers. Kempe flew black to Los Angeles for further evaluation, which may help to determine how much time he'll miss.

  • Kings' Adrian Kempe: Unavailable Tuesday

    According to Austin Stanovich of The Hockey News, Kempe (upper body) won't play Tuesday against Calgary after flying back to LA to undergo tests on an injury he sustained Monday versus Edmonton.

    It's unclear at this time if Kempe will be able to meet back up with the Kings ahead of Thursday's contest in Vancouver. Kempe left Monday's 4-2 loss to the Oilers with 1:35 remaining in the third period after being tripped by Edmonton defender Cody Ceci. Kempe was seen holding his arm as he went down the tunnel, per Gerry Moddejonge of NHL.com. The 27-year-old Kempe has racked up 19 goals, 51 points, 184 shots on net and 81 hits across 57 appearances this season. During his absence, Quinton Byfield or Kevin Fiala could move up to the top line.
