Walker (COVID-19 protocols) had two PIM with two hits and one block in Saturday's 4-3 overtime loss to Minnesota. Walker, who was minus-2, was in the lineup for the first time after missing training camp and the season opener. He logged just over 19 minutes of ice time -- fourth among Los Angeles defensemen -- and took a regular shift on both specialty teams units. Walker had 24 points in 70 games as a sophomore last season and his power-play role could make him useful to fantasy managers in a pinch.
Walker (COVID-19) has been cleared to play, John Hoven of SiriusXM NHL Network Radio reports. Walker missed the entirety of training camp as well as the Kings' season opener due to the NHL's COVID-19 protocols, but he'll be eligible to play Saturday against Minnesota. However, there's a chance he'll sit out Saturday's contest in order to get a few practices in before debuting Tuesday against the Avalanche.
Walker (COVID-19 protocols) is one of three Kings expected to be in action Saturday after missing Thursday's game against Minnesota, Dennis Bernstein of TheFourthPeriod.com reports Walker's return would be welcome news to both Kings fans and fantasy owners, as he's a reliable option to produce from the blue line. If another owner dropped him over COVID concerns, he's worth grabbing, as it appears he'll be in the lineup for four games next week even if there is a setback that keeps him out Saturday.
Walker is unavailable due to the league's COVID-19 protocols. It's unclear why Walker surfaced on the list, as he could have tested positive or come into close contact with a person who did. In any event, Walker won't be available to practice or travel with the team until he's cleared. He was listed on the Kings' non-roster list Wednesday, so it's likely he'll be sitting out Thursday's game against the Wild.
Walker (undisclosed) is on the Kings' NHL non-roster list, Lisa Dillman of The Athletic reports. The specific nature of Walker's issue remains unclear, but it appears as though it will keep him sidelined for the foreseeable future. That's unfortunate news for the Kings and fantasy managers alike, as Walker was a solid producer from the blue line last season, picking up five goals and 24 points in 70 contests.
