Top Viktor Arvidsson News

  • Kings' Viktor Arvidsson: Point streak up to five games

    Arvidsson recorded a power-play assist, five shots on goal and three blocked shots in Sunday's 5-1 win over the Oilers.

    Arvidsson earned the secondary helper on a Drew Doughty goal. With two goals and five helpers during a five-game point streak, Arvidsson has adjusted to his second-line role recently. The Swedish winger has 12 points, 65 shots and a minus-2 rating in 16 contests. He's also up to 11 blocked shots this year -- don't expect another three-block performance from him anytime soon.

  • Kings' Viktor Arvidsson: Notches pair of assists

    Arvidsson registered two assists, four shots on net and a plus-2 rating in Thursday's 3-2 loss to the Flames.

    Arvidsson helped out on goals by Alex Iafallo and Alexander Edler in the contest. With two goals and four assists during his four-game point streak, Arvidsson is settling in nicely alongside Iafallo and Phillip Danault on the second line, which has given the Kings a dangerous top six. Arvidsson has 11 points, 60 shots and a minus-1 rating through 15 contests overall.

  • Kings' Viktor Arvidsson: Registers helper Tuesday

    Arvidsson posted an assist, three shots on goal, two hits and a plus-2 rating in Tuesday's 5-4 shootout loss to the Ducks.

    Arvidsson set up the first of Alex Iafallo's two tallies in the game. With two goals and two assists in his last three outings, Arvidsson has gotten back into good form after a slow return to play from a stint in the COVID-19 protocols. The Swedish winger has nine points, 56 shots and a minus-3 rating through 14 contests. His recent success has mainly come on the power play, where he remains on the top unit, though his even-strength minutes have been on the second line.

  • Kings' Viktor Arvidsson: Collects two points on power play

    Arvidsson scored a goal on five shots and dished an assist, both on the power play, in Wednesday's 6-2 loss to the Maple Leafs.

    Arvidsson tied the game briefly in the second period with his third goal of the year. He also set up Sean Durzi's third-period tally. Arvidsson is up to seven points, 49 shots and a minus-4 rating through 12 contests. He had gone scoreless in three games since returning from a stint in the NHL's COVID-19 protocols before Wednesday's burst of offense.

  • Kings' Viktor Arvidsson: Back in action

    Arvidsson (not injury related) will return to the lineup for Wednesday's game versus Washington.

    The Kings will be happy to have Arvidsson back in the lineup following his seven-game absence due to the NHL's COVID-19 protocols, as he was having a hot start to the season before being sidelined, racking up two goals and five points through the first eight games of the campaign. The 28-year-old winger is expected to skate on LA's first line and top power-play unit against the Capitals.

  • Kings' Viktor Arvidsson: Skates at Tuesday's practice

    Arvidsson has been activated from the NHL's COVID-19 protocols and skated with the Kings at practice Tuesday.

    Gabriel Vilardi was sent down to AHL Ontario in a corresponding move. Arvidsson's status ahead of Wednesday's game versus the Capitals remains unclear, but he did practice in his usual top-line spot alongside Anze Kopitar and Dustin Brown. More information on his status should surface Wednesday.

  • Kings' Viktor Arvidsson: On protocols list

    Arvidsson entered the NHL's COVID-19 protocols Sunday.

    Arvidsson missed Sunday's win over the Sabres, and at this point it isn't clear if he'll be an option for Wednesday's game versus St. Louis. The 28-year-old winger has picked up two goals and five points through eight games this year.

  • Kings' Viktor Arvidsson: Helpers in back-to-back games

    Arvidsson notched an assist and two PIM in Saturday's 7-3 loss to the Blues.

    Arvidsson has recorded helpers in consecutive games, and he's gotten on the scoresheet in four of the Kings' five contests overall. The Swede is up to a goal, three assists, 19 shots on net, six PIM and a plus-2 rating this season. He continues to have fantasy appeal as a scorer while playing alongside Anze Kopitar on the top line.

  • Kings' Viktor Arvidsson: Earns helper Friday

    Arvidsson recorded an assist, six shots on goal and two PIM in Friday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Stars.

    Arvidsson has gotten on the scoresheet in three of the Kings' four games, posting a goal and two assists. He hasn't started as hot as Anze Kopitar (nine points), but Arvidsson's push for a bounce-back season is well underway. The Swede has added 18 shots on net, a plus-2 rating and four PIM while working in a top-line role.

  • Kings' Viktor Arvidsson: Nets first goal with L.A.

    Arvidsson scored a power-play goal on five shots and added two PIM in Saturday's 3-2 loss to the Wild.

    It appears Arvidsson is settling in quite nicely on Anze Kopitar's left wing. With a goal, an assist and 10 shots on net in two contests, Arvidsson has laid the groundwork for a potential bounce-back campaign after three years of slumping returns. The Swede should continue to be a strong scoring threat while working on the top line and first power-play unit.

  • Kings' Viktor Arvidsson: Grabs helper in team debut

    Arvidsson recorded an assist, five shots on goal and a plus-2 rating in Thursday's 6-2 win over the Golden Knights.

    Consider Arvidsson's Kings debut a moderate success, as he set up Anze Kopitar's hat-trick tally in the third period. A steady decline from back-to-back 61 point campaigns saw Arvidsson dip as low as 25 points in 50 contests last year. The key for the Swede this year will be remaining alongside Kopitar at even strength, which could get him back to 20-goal, 50-point potential. A drop in the lineup would likely dim Arvidsson's scoring outlook, as the Kings have little proven center depth.

  • Kings' Viktor Arvidsson: Acquired via trade

    Arvidsson was brought in by the Kings from the Predators on Thursday in exchange for a 2021 second-round pick and 2022 third-round pick.

    Arvidsson -- who is coming off his worst statistical season since his rookie campaign in 2015-16 -- will be hoping the change of scenery can return him to being a 30-goal scorer. Considering what Los Angeles gave up to acquire the 28-year-old winger, it seems the organization believes it has the pieces to end its three-year postseason drought. Arvidsson should be in the mix for a spot on the No. 1 power play, as well, boosting his fantasy outlook.

  • Predators' Viktor Arvidsson: Will be ready for next year

    Arvidsson (upper body) is dealing with a relatively minor injury and will be ready for the start of the 2021-22 campaign, Thomas Willis of the Predators' official site reports.

    Arvidsson likely would have missed the second round of the postseason due to his upper-body issue but should have plenty of time to prepare for the upcoming season. It was the second straight season in which the 28-year-old winger failed to reach the 30-point mark, in part due to the shortened campaign. With an 82-game season, Arvidsson should be capable of pushing for the 30-goal and 60-point thresholds, levels he has achieved twice in his career.

  • Predators' Viktor Arvidsson: Set to miss Thursday's clash

    Arvidsson (upper body) is slated to miss Thursday's Game 6 against Carolina.

    Arvidsson is expected to be on the shelf for his fourth straight outing after sustaining an upper-body injury in Game 2. Without the winger in the lineup, Matt Duchene has been moved into a first-line role while Eeli Tolvanen remains outside the top-six. Once cleared to play, Arvidsson should retake his spot on the first line, assuming the Preds can force a Game 7 or beyond.

  • Predators' Viktor Arvidsson: Out again for Game 5

    Arvidsson (upper body) isn't in the lineup Tuesday against the Hurricanes in Game 5, Brooks Bratten of the Predators' official site reports.

    Arvidsson will miss his third straight game with the issue, and eighth of his last 10 contests overall. It's unclear at this point when the veteran Swede might be able to re-enter the lineup.

  • Predators' Viktor Arvidsson: Out for Game 4

    Arvidsson (upper body) isn't in the lineup for Sunday's Game 4 against the Hurricanes, Thomas Willis of Predators Radio reports.

    Arvidsson returned for the series' first two games after having been out since April 27, but he will now sit out for a second consecutive game. The Swede remains day-to-day and will hope to heal up in time to play in Game 5 on Tuesday.

  • Predators' Viktor Arvidsson: Not playing Friday

    Arvidsson (upper body) will not be available for Friday's Game 3 tilt with the Hurricanes.

    Arvidsson was a late scratch for Friday's game and it's unclear when he was injured. He's currently considered day-to-day so another update should be available before Game 4 on Sunday. The 28-year-old was held without a point in the first two games of the series.

  • Predators' Viktor Arvidsson: Quiet in return

    Arvidsson (undisclosed) posted a shot on goal and a blocked shot in 16:48 of ice time in Monday's 5-2 loss to the Hurricanes in Game 1.

    Arvidsson missed the last five games of the regular season, but he was good to go at the start of the playoffs. The Swede had 25 points in 50 contests during the regular season, and he's expected to fill a top-six role going forward.

  • Predators' Viktor Arvidsson: Back for series opener

    Arvidsson (undisclosed) will suit up for Monday's Game 1 against the Hurricanes, Adam Vingan of The Athletic reports.

    Arvidsson will return to the lineup for the first time since April 27 in a move that was foreshadowed by his full participation in practice late last week. The Swede's expected to skate on the first line and No. 1 power-play unit.
