Wagner (lower body) was the only King to beat Pekka Rinne in Thursday's 3-1 loss to the Predators. Wagner skated 9:21 in the contest and potted his 10th goal. The rookie has 17 points in 50 games, as well as 110 hits, five of which were delivered Thursday. The fourth-round pick from 2015 has done well in limited time, as he only averages 8:40 a game. It's unlikely he will sustain a shooting percentage of 17.6 for much longer, however.
Wagner (lower body) is expected to return to action Thursday against the Predators, NHL.com's Dan Greenspan reports. Wagner's return to health will bolster the Kings' depth up front, but it will almost certainly go unnoticed in most fantasy circles, as he's only totaled 16 points in 49 games this campaign. The 21-year-old rookie is expected to return to a bottom-six role, skating with Trevor Lewis and Kyle Clifford on LA's fourth line.
Head coach Willie Desjardins said Wednesday that Wagner (lower body) should be available for Thursday's home game against Nashville, Curtis Zupke of the Los Angeles Times reports. Wagner has missed the last four games due the injury, but seems to be on the right track for a return. The 21-year-old has been decent this campaign, accumulating 16 points in 49 games. Expect a definitive word on Wagner's status before puck drop Thursday.
Wagner (lower body) is out Sunday versus the Ducks, marking the fourth straight game the winger has missed. Wagner has posted 16 points in his first 49 games but has missed three straight contests, with Sunday's absence being number four. The Kings don't play again till Thursday, so expect another update on the 21-year-old's status well before the team hits the ice.
Wagner (lower body) isn't in the projected lineup for Thursday's matchup with the Blues, NHL.com's Dan Greenspan reports. Wagner's absence will continue to test the Kings' depth up front, but it won't impact many fantasy lineups, as he's only notched 16 points while averaging 8:40 of ice time per contest in 49 appearances this campaign. Another update on the 21-year-old winger's status should surface once he's given the green light to return to game action.
