  • Kings' Viktor Arvidsson: Set for back surgery

    Arvidsson is expected to undergo surgery for a herniated disc Tuesday and is slated to miss 3-5 months, Lisa Dillman of The Athletic reports.

    Based on the recovery timeline, Arvidsson could be cleared in time for the start of training camp but certainly won't be able to put together a full offseason training program. As such, fantasy players may want to anticipate a slow start to the 2022-23 campaign for the winger. Despite being limited to just 66 games this year, the Swede still notched 20 goals and 45-plus points, his fourth time reaching both of those thresholds in his career.

  • Kings' Viktor Arvidsson: Won't play during first round

    Arvidsson (undisclosed) isn't expected to be available for Thursday's Game 6 versus Edmonton or Saturday's potential Game 7 against the Oilers, John Hoven of SiriusXM NHL Network Radio reports.

    Arvidsson will miss a seventh straight game Thursday, and even if the Kings are able to knock out Edmonton and advance to the second round, there's been no indication that he's closing in on a return to action. For now, the 29-year-old winger can be considered out indefinitely.

  • Kings' Viktor Arvidsson: Still sidelined

    Arvidsson (undisclosed) won't play in Sunday's Game 4 against Edmonton, Helene Elliott of the Los Angeles Times reports.

    Arvidsson will miss a fifth straight contest with his undisclosed injury. Until the Kings release another update on his status, the 29-year-old winger, who racked up 20 goals and 49 points through 66 games during the regular season, can be considered out indefinitely.

  • Kings' Viktor Arvidsson: Unavailable Friday

    Arvidsson (undisclosed) will not play Friday against the Oilers, per the NHL's media site.

    Arvidsson has now missed four straight games dating back to the regular season. There's been little update on his status since missing Tuesday's morning skate, so it's still unclear if he's expected to return for Game 4 on Sunday.

  • Kings' Viktor Arvidsson: Unavailable for Game 2

    Arvidsson (undisclosed) won't play in Wednesday's Game 2 against the Oilers, Tom Gazzola of TSN.ca reports.

    Arvidsson will miss a third straight contest due to his undisclosed injury. The 29-year-old winger was red hot down the stretch, racking up seven helpers through his last seven appearances, so he should provide a nice boost to the Kings' offense once he's given the green light to return.

  • Kings' Viktor Arvidsson: Doubtful for Game 2

    Arvidsson (undisclosed) did not skate Tuesday but hasn't been ruled out for Game 2 against Edmonton on Wednesday, Ryan Rishaug of TSN.ca reports.

    Head coach Todd McClellan said that Arvidsson's absence Tuesday was "not a good sign." The 29-year-old winger was a game-time call for Game 1 on Monday but he's now in danger of missing multiple contests to begin Edmonton's first-round series.

  • Kings' Viktor Arvidsson: Out Monday

    Arvidsson (undisclosed) is not expected to suit up for Game 1 against the Oilers on Monday, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports.

    Arvidsson was considered a game-time call for Monday's contest, so he likely isn't dealing with anything too serious. The 29-year-old winger may have been injured during Saturday's practice, causing him to leave early and eventually miss Monday's morning skate. He'll be considered questionable for Game 2 on Wednesday until another update is available.

  • Kings' Viktor Arvidsson: Questionable for Game 1

    Arvidsson (undisclosed) didn't skate Sunday or participate in Monday's morning skate, but coach Todd McLellan believes Arvidsson will suit up for Monday's Game 1 against the Oilers, Pierre LeBrun of The Athletic reports.

    Arvidsson sat out the regular-season finale for what was deemed as rest purposes, but it appears he may be more hampered physically than initially thought. Whatever the nature of his injury, Arvidsson's likely to tough it out and play in Game 1, as McLellan said there's a "good chance" Arvidsson will play.
