Kings' Jake Muzzin: Still searching for first point of 2016-17
Muzzin went scoreless for the third straight game to open the year Tuesday against Minnesota, finishing minus-1 with a single shot on goal in 20:09 of ice time.
The ice time was well down from his first two games, in which Muzzin averaged more than 24 minutes. He's taken only three shots in three games and owns a minus-2 rating, and things don't project to get a whole ton better with star goalie Jonathan Quick (groin) set to miss multiple months. Muzzin will probably get on the board soon enough, but the impact of Quick's absence is clearly making itself noticed in his stats already.
