    • Kings' Clifford Credited With Two Goals

      News: Kyle Clifford, who was initially credited with a goal and assist in Tuesday's win over the Avalanche, had his stat line adjusted to two goals and no assists after an official review, Jon Rosen of LA Kings Insider reports.
      Analysis: The scorer determined that the Kings' third goal of the first period, which had been awarded to Brayden McNabb, never deflected off of the defenseman's stick. As a result, the tally ended up going to Kyle Clifford, who was the last player to touch the puck. It goes down as the first game-winning goal for Clifford, who also tied his career high with two goals by finding twine in the second period.
    • Kings Ink Clifford To Five-Year Extension

      News: Kyle Clifford agreed to a five-year, $8 million extension with the Kings on Wednesday, TSN's Bob McKenzie reports.
      Analysis: A day after locking up Jordan Nolan to a three-year extension, Kings GM Dean Lombardi will bring another bottom-six forward into the fold on a multi-year pact. Kyle Clifford, 24, has tallied three goals and 10 points in 57 games, but is one of the Kings' more prolific contributors in the hits (148) and PIM (66) categories. He'll stick around in a complementary role for the club until the conclusion of the 2019-20 season.
    • Kings' Clifford Finds Net Saturday

      News: Kyle Clifford notched his second goal of the season and collected four PIM in Saturday's loss to the Jets.
      Analysis: The bottom-six forward hadn't tallied a point in nine games, but nearly gave the Kings a game-winner before the Jets' Zach Bogosian notches the equalizer two minutes later in the third period. The winger only has eight points in 40 games and carries most of his value in the form of his lofty hit counts.

      Analysis: Kyle Clifford resumed practicing Wednesday and departed with the rest of the team after Thursday's morning skate while Jordan Nolan remained on the ice for extra work, signaling that Clifford will draw back into the lineup. He's expected to skate at left wing on the Kings' fourth line, joining Dwight King and Mike Richards.
    • Kings' Clifford Likely Out Tuesday

      News: Kyle Clifford (flu) appears unlikely to play Tuesday against the Sabres, Jon Rosen of LA Kings Insider reports.
      Analysis: Kyle Clifford looks to be just about recovered from the illness, but was skating as an extra at the Kings' morning skate, a sign he's not quite ready to go. Marian Gaborik (upper body) will return from a multi-game absence to take Clifford's spot in the lineup.
    • Kings' Clifford Has The Flu

      News: Kings' head coach Darryl Sutter announced Sunday that Kyle Clifford has been dealing with the flu, Lisa Dillman of the LA Times reports.
      Analysis: The Kings don't play until Tuesday so Kyle Clifford's status for that game is still uncertain at this point. The 23-year-old winger has one goal and five assists through 27 games played this season.
    • Kings' Clifford Picks Up Two Points

      News: Kyle Clifford assisted on two scores in Saturday's loss to the Stars.
      Analysis: The 23-year-old still has only five points in 21 games this season, making it tough to get excited about Saturday's showing. He's worth a look in specialty formats only for those fishing for hits and PIM help.

      News: Kyle Clifford scored his first goal of the year Tuesday, wrapping up the scoring with a tip-in of a Trevor Lewis shot in a 3-1 win over Dallas.

    • Kings' Clifford Recovering From Wrist Surgery

      News: Kyle Clifford underwent successful surgery after the Stanley Cup Finals to repair a small fracture in one of his wrists, LA Kings Insider reports.
      Analysis: Kyle Clifford reportedly underwent the procedure June 24 and was given a six-to-eight week recovery timetable, which should put him on track to return in time for training camp. He totaled eight points in 24 playoff games, and is slated to serve in a bottom-six capacity during the upcoming campaign.
    • Kings' Clifford Has Two Points In Game 1

      News: Kyle Clifford opened the scoring for the Kings with his first goal of the playoffs -- and his first postseason goal since 2011 -- then added an assist on Drew Doughty's game-tying tally in Wednesday's Game 1 win over the Rangers.
      Analysis: Rare though it may be, the goal came on a beautiful sharp-angle shot. Kyle Clifford collected a total of just three points in the Kings' first three playoff series, so this is quite the explosion for him, and it came in his typically limited fourth-line role -- in fact, he played the fewest minutes of any Kings skater.
