      Kings' Anze Kopitar: Pots two goals

      Kopitar scored a pair of goals in Sunday's loss to the Hurricanes. The second tally came on the man advantage, good for Kopitar's first power-play goal of the season. The center didn't have a great opening month, but he's turned it around with seven points (four goals, three assists) in 10 November contests.

      Kings' Anze Kopitar: Partakes in Thursday morning skate

      Kopitar (face) participated in the Thursday morning skate, ahead of an evening game against the Blue Jackets, Lisa Dillman of the Los Angeles Times reports. This report adds more evidence to the notion that Kopitar dodged a serious injury after taking an elbow to the face and departing a game against the Blues on Tuesday.

      Kings' Anze Kopitar: Fine after elbow to face

      Kopitar (upper body) worked out with the team Wednesday and is "fine," according to Kings head coach Darryl Sutter, Jon Rosen of LA Kings Insider reports. Kopitar owners had a scare Tuesday after the star center took an elbow to the face while facing the Blues, ultimately causing him to leave the game. Fortunately, his bench boss is not worried, and fantasy players rostering the husky forward should feel safe activating him Thursday, when the Kings host the Blue Jackets.

      Kopitar will not return to Tuesday's game against the Blues due to an upper body injury, Jon Rosen of LA Kings Insider reports.

    • Looks to put preseason struggles behind him

      News: Anze Kopitar finished the preseason with just one assist and three shots on goal in four games for the Kings.
      Analysis: The Kings' top unit of Anze Kopitar, Marian Gaborik and newcomer Milan Lucic would probably like to forget the entire preseason as they all had their fair share of struggles. Kopitar failed to score twenty goals in a full season for the first time last year, so look for him to try to get things on track early in 2015-16.
    • Extension Talks Lagging Between Kings, Kopitar

      News: Kings GM Dean Lombardi said that Anze Kopitar and the team are "not even in the ballpark" when he was asked if the two parties were close to reaching agreement on a long-term extension, Jon Rosen of LA Kings Insider reports.
      Analysis: Anze Kopitar, who is entering the final season of a seven-year, $47.6 million pact, has been eligible to sign an extension with the Kings since July 1, but the team's unfavorable cap situation coupled with the star center's justifiably high salary demands have made negotiations difficult. While a deal isn't likely to be finalized in the near future, the Kings are still likely to hammer out a deal with Kopitar before he becomes an unrestricted free agent next summer.

      News: Anze Kopitar dished out two assists and went plus-4 in Thursday's 8-2 annihilation of Edmonton.
      Analysis: After two straight off the scoresheet, Anze Kopitar got right back at it, and the big plus-minus effort has pushed him just one tick short of being even for the year. Despite those two down games, Kopi's on a good late-season run, having totaled 10 points in his last eight contests.
    • Kopitar's Two Helpers Boost Kings

      News: Anze Kopitar pushed his point streak to four games by assisting twice in Tuesday's 4-2 win over the Rangers.

    • Kings' Kopitar Grabs Three Points In Win

      News: Kopiter factored into all of the team's scoring, netting a goal and dishing out two assists in Monday's 3-1 win over the Devils.
      Analysis: It's the second three-point outing in the past three weeks for Anze Kopitar, as he's been on fire in the month of March. The 27-year-old has tallied 12 points in his last 10 contests, and is now up to 57 points (15 goals) on the season. The numbers are down almost across the board for the center, but he's still provided enough production to make him a worthwhile play for fantasy purposes.
    • Dominant Effort For Kings' Kopitar

      News: Anze Kopitar scored an unassisted goal, helped out on Marian Gaborik's empty-netter and went plus-2 with a trio of takeaways Thursday in a win over Vancouver.
