Kopitar assisted on both goals in Tuesday's 3-2 loss to the Avalanche. Kopitar was a key figure in the Kings' attempted rally in the third period. He set up Andreas Athanasiou on their first goal, then earned the secondary helper on Adrian Kempe's power-play tally. It's the second time in three games Kopitar has produced two helpers. He's added eight shots on goal and six hits so far. Kopitar will eventually get a goal of his own, but fantasy managers won't mind his success in helping his teammates.
Kopitar recorded two assists and went 16-for-24 at the faceoff dot in Thursday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Wild. Kopitar picked up where he left off last year, generating a multi-point effort in his first game. The 33-year-old center is still firmly entrenched as the top option down the middle for the Kings. He had 62 points in 70 outings last year and should approach a point-per-game pace in 2020-21 despite the Kings' expected struggles on offense.
Kopitar has 21 goals, 62 points and a plus-6 rating in 70 games this season. Kopitar has now scored at least 60 points in six of the last seven seasons. The 32-year-old forward is also one of just six Kings with a positive rating and his 21:02 of ice time per game leads the team's forwards. If the NHL finishes the 2019-20 regular season, Kopitar could hit the 70-point milestone for the eighth time in his career.
Kopitar scored one goal and added two assists in Saturday's 7-3 victory over Minnesota. He also finished plus-5 with four SOG. Kopitar is on pace for a 25-goal, 75-point season. His 15.8 shooting percentage is well above his 12.8 career average, but he's been firing well above that average for the last three seasons. It should continue. Kopitar is 50 points shy of 1,000 and sits ninth on the active player point leaderboard. At 32, he still has lots to give.
Kopitar scored two goals, including one on the power play, in Sunday's 4-1 win over the Golden Knights. Kopitar's pair of tallies in the first period were all goalie Cal Petersen needed to secure the win. The Slovenian center reached the 20-goal mark for the third straight year and the 11th time in his career. He's up to 59 points, 128 shots and a plus-1 rating through 66 contests.
