      Analysis: Ersberg initially bruised his glove hand Sunday before leaving Monday's practice. X-Rays were negative and Ersberg is scheduled to start Wednesday's exhibition game. He'll need a strong camp to beat out Jonathan Bernier for the backup goaltending duties for the Kings.
    • Kings throw Ersberg start in finale

      News: Kings goalie Erik Ersberg had 31 saves filling in for Jonathan Quick during a 2-1 overtime win against the Avalanche on Sunday. Ryan Stoa scored his second goal of the season midway through the first period, slipping a puck through the pads of Ersberg. It would be the only mistake Ersberg would make all day. He made 24 saves over the final two periods and overtime.
      Analysis: Ersberg won his final two appearances of the season to finish 4-3-2 with a 2.40 GAA and .906 save percentage. He appeared in only 11 games as Quick has a breakout season. Ersberg slipped into coach Terry Murray's doghouse in 2009-10 and it will be interesting to see if he returns in 2010-11, with one year left on his contract. Prospect Jonathan Bernier looks ready for a promotion to the NHL, so Ersberg might be let go. Either way, we don't expect him to be a starter next season, so Ersberg won't have much Fantasy appeal. The Kings TG will be no worse than a No. 2 option on Draft Day.
    • Ersberg rallies Kings to win

      News: Usually using two goalies in a game doesn't spell success, but the Kings hit the jackpot during Tuesday's 5-4 shootout win against the Ducks. After Jonathan Quick failed to turn in a solid performance, Erik Ersberg took over and guided Los Angeles to a comeback win. The Kings pulled Quick after the franchise's single-season wins leader yielded three goals on eight shots in the first 22:01. Ersberg took over despite a three-goal deficit. Ersberg made 12 saves in relief for the Kings and allowed only one goal in the shootout.
      Analysis: Ersberg finally got a chance to showcase his skills after sitting on the bench for most of the second half. Unfortunately, the Kings' coaching staff still backs Quick and Ersberg remains in a backup role. He has minimal Fantasy appeal.
