McNabb (collarbone) is "at least a month away" from returning, according to coach Darryl Sutter, Jon Rosen of LA Kings Insider reports.

Broken collarbones are tricky injuries that can take awhile to heal, so it's not surprising to hear that McNabb is likely to miss at least most of December. Despite injuries to the 25-year-old blueliner as well as star goalie Jonathan Quick (groin), the Kings' defense has been solid this season, allowing only 2.41 goals per game.
