Toffoli's two assists in Thursday's win against the Jets give him 17 on the season. It's been a frustrating year for Toffoli, who scored 31 goals and 58 points last year. His numbers are down across the board, even on a pro-rated basis. Toffoli was expected to take another step this season, and it's no coincidence the Kings have struggled on offense. He's hard to rely on in fantasy due to his inconsistent production this season, and it's even harder when head coach Darryl Sutter mixes up the lines. With dates against the Rangers, Oilers and Flames coming up, scoring won't be getting any easier.
Toffoli tallied two goals in a 3-2 shootout loss to the visiting Coyotes on Tuesday. All four regulation goals in this one were scored by just two players, as Max Domi also potted a pair for Arizona. Toffoli snapped a seven-game goal drought by bulging the twine, giving him 14 in addition to 15 assists in 50 contests this year.
Toffoli found the net twice Saturday in a 4-1 win over Anaheim. Toffoli got both goals in the third period; the second one stood up as the winner. He has struggled to find the net since his return from injury in early February (he has four points, all goals, in 10 games since Feb. 4). Toffoli is well off his pace of last season, but it's important to note that the Kings offense overall has struggled to this point in the season. They're warming up and maybe Toffoli is, too. Roll the dice.
Toffoli (lower body) was activated from injured reserve ahead of Saturday's matinee against the Flyers, Lisa Dillman of NHL.com reports. It's been a long time coming for Toffoli, who has missed the past 19 games, but now appears poised to reprise his top-six role with time on the first power-play unit. Prior to sustaining the injury, the two-way wunderkind registered eight goals, 12 assists and a plus-14 rating. You won't want to leave that kind of production on the bench.
Toffoli will be a game-time decision for Saturday's matchup with the Flyers, Jon Rosen of LA Kings Insider reports. It's undoubtedly exciting to see Toffoli so close to returning to the Kings' lineup, but his owners may want to temper their expectations for his first game back, as he'll likely be eased back into action after being sidelined for more than a month with a lower-body ailment. The 24-year-old sniper will likely take pregame warmups before a final decision on his status for Saturday's game is made, so owners playing in leagues with daily lineups may want to consider leaving Toffoli on the bench for one more contest.
