Kings' Quinton Byfield: Labeled week-to-week
Byfield is considered week-to-week after leaving Tuesday's game versus the Coyotes with a lower-body injury.
Byfield had a hard collision with the boards in the third period, and it appears this injury will cost him at least the rest of the preseason. The 19-year-old's status for the Kings' home opener versus the Golden Knights on Oct. 14 is also clearly in doubt, though he hasn't officially been ruled out of that contest yet.... See More ...

Kings' Quinton Byfield: Injury clarified
Byfield suffered a fractured ankle Tuesday, John Hoven of SiriusXM NHL Network Radio reports.
With this news, it's safe to assume Byfield will be sidelined a minimum of four weeks, and likely longer as the Kings won't want to rush their top prospect. The 19-year-old probably won't play at any level until November at the earliest, so fantasy managers in redraft formats probably can leave him undrafted. The Kings officially placed Byfield on injured reserve.... See More ... See Less
Kings' Quinton Byfield: Suffers lower-body injury
Byfield (lower body) left Tuesday's game versus the Coyotes in the third period after he was hit by Christian Fischer, John Hoven of SiriusXM NHL Network Radio reports.
Byfield appeared to have his left leg or foot crash into the boards after the hit. The 19-year-old had a foot injury that cost him time at the start of training camp, but he had recovered from that before Tuesday's new injury. The Kings will likely provide an update on the top prospect in the next few days, though he could be held out of Wednesday's game versus the Ducks.... See More ... See Less
Kings' Quinton Byfield: Expected to make camp debut
Byfield (foot) is expected to make his training camp debut Friday, John Hoven of SiriusXM NHL Network Radio reports.
Byfield was dealing with a foot injury as well as an illness heading into training camp, but it sounds like the Kings will begin easing him into the swing of things by having him skate with the team's third group Friday. The second overall pick from last year's draft should get every opportunity to make LA's Opening Night roster during camp. Byfield spent most of the 2020-21 campaign with AHL Ontario, notching eight goals and 20 points in 32 contests, but he also drew into six games with the big club, picking up one helper over that span....

Kings' Quinton Byfield: Status uncertain for camp
Byfield (foot) is also reportedly dealing with an illness ahead of the start of training camp, John Hoven of SiriusXM NHL Network Radio reports.
Byfield was already suffering from a foot injury and was doubtful to be available for the start of training camp, but this latest news only serves to further complicate the situation. If the 19-year-old center is unable to play Opening Night against the Golden Knights on Oct. 14, it could mean increased opportunities for T.J. Tynan or Jaret Anderson-Dolan.... See More ... See Less
Kings' Quinton Byfield: Dealing with foot injury
Byfield is dealing with a foot injury and wasn't available at training camp Monday, John Hoven of SiriusXM NHL Network Radio reports.
It doesn't sound like Byfield's injury is too serious but more of a small, nagging issue. He tested his foot out to begin the day but didn't feel right and left the ice. Barring an aggravation of the injury, the 19-year-old forward should be back to work sooner rather than later.... See More ... See Less
Kings' Quinton Byfield: Sent to AHL
Byfield has been reassigned to AHL Ontario, John Hoven of SiriusXM NHL Network Radio reports.
Byfield looked raw in his cup of coffee with the Kings, mustering just one helper in six games with the big club. The 2020 second overall pick will have two more games at the AHL level to gain experience before his rookie season comes to a close.... See More ... See Less
Kings' Quinton Byfield: Drops to taxi squad

Kings' Quinton Byfield: Earns first NHL point
Byfield produced an assist and three shots on goal in Wednesday's 4-2 win over the Coyotes.
Byfield's first career point was the secondary helper on Jaret Anderson-Dolan's first-period tally. It took Byfield five games to get on the scoresheet, but dynasty managers shouldn't be discouraged. The 18-year-old center will likely compete for a full-time role with the Kings in training camp ahead of the 2021-22 campaign.... See More ... See Less
Kings' Quinton Byfield: Making NHL debut
Byfield will be promoted to LA's active roster and make his NHL debut Wednesday against Anaheim, Lisa Dillman of The Athletic reports.
Byfield has been impressive as an 18-year-old rookie during his time in the AHL this season, picking up eight goals and 20 points through 30 games. The second overall pick from the 2020 NHL Entry Draft is expected to center Trevor Moore and Adrian Kempe on the Kings' third line Wednesday.... See More ... See Less
Kings' Quinton Byfield: Assigned to taxi squad
Byfield was assigned to the Kings' taxi squad Monday, Lisa Dillman of The Athletic reports.
Byfield is yet to make his NHL debut, but he'll be available for Monday's game against Anaheim should the Kings choose to dress him. The second overall pick in the 2020 draft has posted a pedestrian eight goals and 20 points in 30 games with AHL Ontario, so Byfield's unlikely to be an impact NHL player this season, even if given the opportunity to play down the stretch....

Kings' Quinton Byfield: Back in action
Byfield (lower body) produced an assist in Tuesday's 7-4 loss to AHL San Diego.
Byfield wasn't expected to miss much time with a minor lower-body injury, and ultimately was only out for a couple of games. The second overall pick from 2020 should continue to play a big role with AHL Ontario this season. He could challenge for a roster spot with the Kings when training camp for the 2021-22 season gets underway. He has 19 points in 26 games in the minors this year.... See More ... See Less

Kings' Quinton Byfield: Headed to AHL affiliate
The Kings assigned Byfield to AHL Ontario on Wednesday, Lisa Dillman of The Athletic reports.
Many thought Byfield might be able to snag a spot on L.A.'s Opening Night roster. Although he was unable to do so, it wouldn't be surprising to see him make his NHL debut later this season after getting some experience in the minors. The second overall pick from the 2020 draft recently racked up seven points in seven games with Team Canada at the IIHF World Junior Championship.... See More ... See Less
Kings' Quinton Byfield: Heading straight to L.A.
Byfield will join five other Kings and Ducks prospects on a private chartered flight and travel directly to Los Angeles from the IIHF World Junior Championship bubble in Edmonton, reports Bob McKenzie of TSN.
Byfield will be joined by fellow Kings prospects Alex Turcotte, Arthur Kaliyev and Tobias Bjornfot, as well as the Ducks' Trevor Zegras and Jamie Drysdale. The hope is that this will allow for a shortened (or eliminated) league-mandated quarantine. Byfield has two goals and five assists through six games for Team Canada ahead of Tuesday's gold medal contest against Team USA.... See More ... See Less
