  • Kings' Derek Forbort: Has minor operation to fix knee problem

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/25/17) Forbort is expected to be healthy for the start of training camp despite requiring a minor procedure on his left knee.

    The Kings' 15th overall pick from the 2010 draft didn't miss a single game during the regular season, finishing with 18 points (two goals, 16 assists) to complement a plus-8 rating and averaging just over 20 minutes per contest. Forbort also blocked a ton of shots (159) to go along with 180 hits, and while he probably needs to do more with the puck to captivate most fantasy owners, fans of the royal club should be encouraged by the blueliner's first full NHL campaign.

    Kings' Derek Forbort: Regular role not leading to points for Kings

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/18/17) Forbort has recorded just a pair of assists over his last ten games.

    The youngster has managed to work his way into a regular role for the Kings, averaging 19:43 of ice time in 44 games this season, but remains limited offensively with just 13 points (two goals, 11 assists) thus far. He'll give the Kings some steady minutes on the backend but you're better off looking elsewhere for fantasy production.

    Kings' Derek Forbort: Scores first goal and adds assist

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/18/16) Forbort scored his first goal of the season and added an assist in Thursday's 4-2 win over Edmonton.

    All five of Forbort's points this season have come in two games -- Nov. 8 at Toronto and this one. The 24-year-old blueliner doesn't appear to have much offensive presence, having contributed just two goals and five assists in 32 NHL games.

    Kings' Derek Forbort: Records three assists Tuesday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/9/16) Forbort rattled off three assists in a 7-0 win over the Maple Leafs on Tuesday.

    The points were the first of the season for Forbort, who set up all three goals at even strength to give him a plus-3 on the night. The 24-year-old doesn't have a ton of NHL experience under his belt (just 14 games last year), but given what he's shown so far, it's tough to forecast any type of fantasy relevance.

    Kings' Derek Forbort: Moving forward following abdominal issue

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (8/9/16) Forbort underwent abdomen surgery after the NHL draft in late June, though he's expected to be fully healthy for the start of training camp, Jon Rosen of LA Kings Insider reports.

    Forbort may have fought off the abdomen injury, but more hurdles lie ahead for the inexperienced blueliner. A spot on the opening-night roster is no guarantee, and he'll have to fend off similarly talented rearguards just to fit on the bottom pair, including, but not limited to: Matt Greene, Zach Trotman and Tom Gilbert. There's plenty of upside with Forbort; the Kings snagged him with the 15th overall pick of the 2010 NHL Entry Draft, but the hulky 24-year-old needs to carve out a full-time role before he can be considered in non-keeper formats.
