  • Kings' Nikolai Prokhorkin: Signs overseas

    Prokhorkin agreed to terms on a two-year contract with Metallurg Magnitogorsk (KHL) on Monday, Kings beat writer John Hoven reports.

    Prokhorkin saw action in 43 games with the Kings this season, in which he notched four goals, 10 helpers and 63 shots while averaging 12:06 of ice time. The winger will almost certainly be given a qualifying offer by the team to maintain his player rights should he make a return to the NHL following the conclusion of his overseas contract.

  • Kings' Nikolai Prokhorkin: Navigates challenging rookie year

    Prokhorkin's assist against the Avalanche allowed him to enter the league hiatus on a reasonably high note.

    Prokhorkin managed 14 points in 43 games this year, which suggests he's not likely to be much help in fantasy moving forward. He has shown a nose for the net in his native Russia but hasn't yet found a way to consistently produce in North America.

  • Kings' Nikolai Prokhorkin: Drought reaches 10 games

    Prokhorin was held scoreless Sunday against Vegas and hasn't registered a point since Jan. 16.

    At one point, Prokhorin's 13 points on the season were a decent number that suggested he had value in daily leagues as a cheap option. But that was 10 games ago, and it's become clear that scoring is likely to be few and far between for the Russian winger. Prokhorin's value is pretty limited at the moment, and unless you're in the deepest of dynasty leagues and planning for next season, there's no real reason to own him right now.

    Prokhorkin registered two assists, three shots on goal and two PIM in Friday's 3-2 overtime win over the Sharks.

Prokhorkin now has 10 points, 28 shots and 19 hits through 20 appearances. The Russian could end up with 25 to 30 points by the end of the season if he can find some more consistency.

  • Kings' Nikolay Prokhorkin: Grabs goal in loss

    Prokhorkin scored a goal on three shots in Monday's 4-2 loss to the Ducks.

    The Russian has taken a step forward in his adjustment to the NHL, with four points in his last five games. Prokhorkin has five points and 15 shots on goal in 11 appearances overall this year. While he's hot, he may be worth an add in deeper formats.

  • Kings' Nikolay Prokhorkin: Collects first NHL goal

    Prokhorkin scored his first career goal in Saturday's 4-3 win over the Golden Knights.

    A fourth-round pick in 2012, the 26-year-old took a while to make it back to North America, but after scoring 20 goals and 41 points in 41 KHL games last year, it's taken Prokhorkin only five NHL games to light the lamp for the first time. His fantasy value is limited skating on the fourth line, but if he keeps flashing his offensive upside, he could force his way into a more prominent assignment.

  • Kings' Nikolay Prokhorkin: Gets into game

    Prokhorkin logged 9:41 of ice time against the Wild on Tuesday, his first NHL game since Oct. 30 versus Vancouver.

    In the KHL last season, Prokhorkin tallied 20 goals and 21 assists in 41 games, but has struggled for a consistent spot in the Kings' lineup. Given his minimal usage, the team may opt to send the 26-year-old down to the minors, though that could make him consider a return to Russia after his one-year deal expires.
