Top Olli Maatta News

  • Kings' Olli Maatta: Chips in with assist

    Maatta produced an assist in Thursday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Canucks.

    Maatta had the secondary helper on an Adrian Kempe goal in the second period. The 27-year-old Maatta didn't see much of a bounce-back on offense in 2021-22, logging just eight points in 66 outings. He's added 61 shots on net, 67 hits, 94 blocked shots and a plus-17 rating. The Finn could be an important part of the Kings' depth during the playoffs -- he's a two-time Stanley Cup champion with the Penguins, but he projects for third-pairing minutes this postseason.

  • Kings' Olli Maatta: Picks up helper Thursday

    Maatta recorded an assist in Thursday's 3-2 shootout win over the Flames.

    Maatta has earned two assists in his last four games. The 27-year-old had the secondary helper on Viktor Arvidsson's tally Thursday. Through 55 contests, Maatta has just seven points with 79 blocked shots, 55 hits, 55 shots on net and a plus-18 rating, mainly in a bottom-four role.

  • Kings' Olli Maatta: Sees shot tipped in

    Maatta registered an assist and blocked two shots in Saturday's 4-2 win over the Kraken.

    It was a Maatta shot that Gabriel Vilardi tipped in for the opening goal Saturday. The 27-year-old Maatta makes only rare contributions on the scoresheet -- he has six points in 52 outings. The Finn has added 54 shots on net, 77 blocked shots, 53 hits and a plus-20 rating, and he should continue to see a regular place in the lineup until the Kings get some blueliners back from injury.

  • Kings' Olli Maatta: Manages assist in overtime loss

    Maatta produced an assist, three blocked shots and a plus-3 rating in Thursday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Sharks.

    Maatta helped out on an Andreas Athanasiou goal in the first period. The 27-year-old Maatta recently went 25 games without a point, but he's picked up an assist in each of his last two outings. The Finn won't add offense on a regular basis, but he's a defensive fixture in the Kings' lineup. He has five points, 48 shots on net, 68 blocked shots, 44 hits and a plus-17 rating in 44 appearances this season.

  • Kings' Olli Maatta: Finishes night as plus-2

    Maatta didn't score in his return to the ice after getting through COVID protocols, a 4-0 win over Detroit on Saturday.

    Maata doesn't offer much on the scoresheet unless your league considers plus/minus numbers in its categories. If it does, he's a great play, as he's a plus-6 in his past four contests. Otherwise, he won't do much for your team.

  • Kings' Olli Maatta: Back at it Saturday

    Maatta (COVID-19) will return to action against the Red Wings on Saturday, Lisa Dillman of The Athletic reports.

    Despite clearing COVID-19 protocols, Maata was not included in the lineup versus the Predators on Thursday. However, the 27-year-old blueliner is evidently primed to defend against a Detroit club that has experienced mixed results this season. Maatta has chipped in a goal and two assists through 19 contests, which doesn't move the needle much in fantasy hockey.

  • Kings' Olli Maatta: Ruled out Thursday

    Maatta (COVID-19) will not return to play in Thursday's contest against Nashville, per Lisa Dillman of The Athletic.

    Maatta cleared COVID-19 protocols Wednesday but may not feel ready to return. The Finn will have missed four consecutive Kings contests. Tobias Bjornfot is likely to see an expanded role during the 27-year-old's absence.

  • Kings' Olli Maatta: Practices Wednesday

    Maatta (COVID-19 protocols) was on the ice for Wednesday's practice, Zach Dooley of the Kings' official site reports.

    Maatta's presence at practice indicates he's cleared the virus protocols. It remains unclear if he'll play Thursday versus the Predators, but he might have to tough it out at less than 100 percent since Christian Wolanin entered the virus protocols Wednesday. If Maatta suits up, he's unlikely to play in more than a bottom-four role.

  • Kings' Olli Maatta: Placed on COVID-19 list

    Maatta was placed in COVID-19 protocols Sunday, Lisa Dillman of The Athletic reports.

    It's unclear when the team expects Maatta to return but he could miss Tuesday's tilt with Vegas. The 27-year-old blueliner has three points while averaging 16:48 of ice time through 19 games this season.

  • Kings' Olli Maatta: Comes up big in win

    Maatta registered a goal to complement a plus-3 rating in Thursday's 4-1 win over the Panthers.

    Maatta easily had his best game of the season as the Kings faced a Panthers team pulling from its minor-league system with a number of regulars in COVID-19 protocols. Still, he's not going to be a popular fantasy option due to a relatively low amount of average ice time (16:25) through 17 games.

  • Kings' Olli Maatta: Activated from IR

    Maatta (undisclosed) was activated from injured reserve Saturday, per the NHL's official media site.

    Maatta was already expected to return Saturday against visiting Minnesota, and this transaction confirms that. Expect Maatta to take on a bottom-pairing role and not factor much into the offense after last year's showing of four points in 41 games.

  • Kings' Olli Maatta: Expected back Saturday

    Maatta (undisclosed) is expected to play in Saturday's matchup with Minnesota, John Hoven of SiriusXM NHL Network Radio reports.

    After missing the first game of the year, Maatta is poised to rejoin the lineup versus the Wild. In 41 games for the Kings last year, the 27-year-old defenseman recorded a meager four points while averaging 16:26 of ice time. In order to play, Maatta will need to be activated off injured reserve with Christian Wolanin expected to be reassigned to the minors in a corresponding move.

  • Kings' Olli Maatta: Starts season on IR

    Maatta (undisclosed) was placed on injured reserve retroactive to Oct. 1 on Tuesday.

    LA has yet to release an expected timetable for Maatta's recovery, but he'll be eligible to play whenever he's cleared medically. The 27-year-old blueliner tallied four points while occupying a bottom-pairing role through 41 games with the Kings last year.

  • Kings' Olli Maatta: Not returning Saturday

    Maatta (undisclosed) won't play in Saturday's preseason finale versus the Ducks, Zach Dooley of the Kings' official site reports.

    Maatta was initially thought to be a possibility to play Saturday, but it looks like the Kings will rest the 27-year-old. The Finn doesn't seem to be dealing with a significant injury, but he remains day-to-day ahead of the Kings' season opener Thursday versus the Golden Knights.

  • Kings' Olli Maatta: Could return by weekend

    Maatta (undisclosed) won't play Wednesday versus the Ducks, but he may be available for Saturday's preseason finale, also against the Ducks.

    It doesn't seem like Maatta's injury will cost him much, if any, regular-season time. The Finn is expected to fill a bottom-four role on the blue line in 2021-22. He hasn't reached the 20-point mark since 2017-18, so he isn't likely to be of much interest in fantasy.

  • Kings' Olli Maatta: Chips in with assist

    Maatta registered an assist in Monday's 2-1 overtime loss to the Blues.

    Maatta snapped a 10-game point drought with his assist. The Finn hasn't done much on offense in 2020-21 with only four helpers in 39 contests. He's added 41 shots on net, 40 hits and 50 blocked shots in a limited third-pairing role.

  • Kings' Olli Maatta: Registers helper

    Maatta produced an assist and two blocked shots in Tuesday's 4-1 win over the Ducks.

    Maatta set up Andreas Athanasiou's tally in the second period. The 26-year-old Maatta has just four assists, 32 shots on net, 28 hits and 34 blocked shots through 29 outings. The Finn is likely to remain in a third-pairing role with limited upside, so fantasy managers can likely look elsewhere for depth on the blue line.

  • Kings' Olli Maatta: Nabs assist in return

    Maatta (upper body) recorded an assist, three blocked shots and two PIM in Saturday's 4-2 win over the Sharks.

    Maatta missed nine games with the injury, and he saw 19:10 of ice time in his return. The 26-year-old blueliner now has two assists through 25 contests this year. He's added 28 shots on net, 28 hits, 27 blocks and six PIM in a fairly limited third-pairing role.

  • Kings' Olli Maatta: Removed from IR

    Maatta (upper body) was activated from injured reserve Saturday.

    Maatta missed nine games while dealing with his upper-body issue. It's unclear if he'll return to the lineup Saturday against San Jose, but his activation would indicate that as the likely scenario. He has one assist and a minus-6 rating in 24 games this season.
