Kopitar was dominant in Tuesday night's 4-3 overtime road win against the Ducks, fashioning his team's first goal as well as a power-play assist.
This is yet another example of the Slovenian fitting the bill as team captain. Kopitar is in the midst of a six-game point streak, adding two goals and six assists -- including four on the power play -- over that span. If this guy is on your fantasy bench, we're going to assume your pool runs on the shallow side.
Kopitar registered an assist at even strength and on the power play in Saturday's 4-3 home loss to the Predators.
While it wasn't the outcome Kopitar desired, he's still paying dividends for his fantasy owners as the two apples from this last game extended his points streak to five games. He remains a highly dependable fantasy option, but long gone are the days when the Yugoslavian would flirt with a point-per-game pace.
Kopitar found the back of the net during Thursday's 4-0 win over the Canadiens.
After scoring just 12 goals in 76 games last season, Kopitar already has seven in his first 10 games played this year. The 30-year-old center has been a wonderful , all-around fantasy asset, scoring 12 points, racking up 26 shots on goal, and posting a plus-9 rating. He should have no problem surpassing his disappointing 52-point total from last season.
Kopitar scored twice and added an assist in Saturday's win over the Blue Jackets.
Kopitar dominated Columbus, recording a plus-5 rating and bringing his point total to 11 on the season. He's only been held off the scoresheet twice in six games and is a prime reason why the Kings remain the only team in the NHL without a regulation loss. Kopitar struggled in 2016-17, but his potential bounce-back campaign is off to a great start. With a fantastic plus-11 rating and consistent point production, Kopitar deserves to be in your lineup every game.
Kopitar recorded a goal, an assist and finished with a plus-1 rating in Sunday's 3-2 win against the Islanders.
After putting together his least productive full season to date in 2016-17, scoring 12 goals and 52 points, Kopitar has kicked off the 2017-18 campaign in a big way, with four goals and eight points from his first five contests. Los Angeles' No. 1 pivot has already logged three multi-point games and is currently riding a four-game point streak that he'll look to extend Wednesday against Montreal.
