Top Rasmus Kupari News

  • Kings' Rasmus Kupari: Contributes assist Thursday

    Kupari provided an assist and two hits in Thursday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Canucks.

    Kupari snapped his five-game point drought with a helper on a Gabriel Vilardi goal in the second period. The 22-year-old Kupari ends his rookie season with 13 points, 51 shots on net, 68 hits and a minus-5 rating through 57 contests. He was mainly limited to bottom-six usage, but the 20th overall pick from 2018 could grow into a larger role in 2022-23. It's unclear how much of a role he'll play in the Kings' first-round playoff series versus the Oilers.

  • Kings' Rasmus Kupari: Earns helper in win

    Kupari logged an assist, four shots on goal, three hits and a plus-2 rating in Tuesday's 6-1 win over the Predators.

    Kupari set up Quinton Byfield's first of two goals in the third period. Beyond the helper, Kupari was noticeable in his 13:40 of ice time. He's moved up to the third line with the Kings missing four of their regular wingers to injury. The Finn has 11 points, 40 shots on net, 38 hits and a minus-1 rating through 42 contests overall -- he could have some appeal in deep fantasy formats while playing a larger role.

  • Kings' Rasmus Kupari: Pots goal Sunday

    Kupari scored a goal on three shots in Sunday's 3-2 shootout win over the Panthers.

    Kupari opened the scoring at 11:50 of the first period. With the Kings experiencing a bad run of injuries throughout the lineup, Kupari should get a chance to play in the near term. The 21-year-old has been solid with 10 points, 35 shots on net, 31 hits and a minus-1 rating through 38 contests, mainly in a bottom-six role.

  • Kings' Rasmus Kupari: Recalled from AHL

    Kupari was elevated from AHL Ontario on Friday.

    Kupari has averaged 11:36 of ice time and tallied nine points over 37 NHL appearances this season. The 21-year-old's most recent NHL performance was in a 6-4 loss to Tampa Bay on Jan. 18.

  • Kings' Rasmus Kupari: Demoted to AHL

    Kupari was reassigned to AHL Ontario on Wednesday.

    Kupari was demoted to make room for Austin Strand and Christian Wolanin on the active roster. Kupari's drawn into 37 games with the Kings this season, picking up nine points over that span, so it wouldn't be surprising to see him back with the big club following the All-Star break.

  • Kings' Rasmus Kupari: Manages assist in loss

    Kupari logged an assist and two hits in Tuesday's 6-4 loss to the Lightning.

    Kupari helped out on an Arthur Kaliyev tally in the second period. The 21-year-old Kupari has gathered three assists in his last six outings, but he has now gone 16 games without a goal. The Finnish center is up to nine points, 32 shots on net, 30 hits and 14 PIM through 37 contests, mainly serving as a third-liner.

  • Kings' Rasmus Kupari: Picks up late helper

    Kupari notched an assist and two shots on goal in Thursday's 6-2 win over the Penguins.

    Kupari has earned two assists in his last three games. He assisted on a Sean Durzi goal late in the third period Thursday. Kupari's bottom-six role isn't one likely to see him generate much offense. The Finn is up to eight points, 28 shots on net, 25 hits and an even plus-minus rating in 34 contests.

  • Kings' Rasmus Kupari: Hands out helper

    Kupari recorded an assist in Saturday's 4-0 win over the Red Wings.

    Kupari set up Drew Doughty for the goal that put the Kings ahead 2-0 midway through the first period. The 21-year-old Kupari snapped an eight-game point drought with the helper. The Finn is up to seven points, 26 shots on net, 25 hits, 12 PIM and an even plus-minus rating through 32 contests. He's unlikely to advance much beyond his current third-line role with Anze Kopitar and Phillip Danault ahead of him on the center depth chart.

  • Kings' Rasmus Kupari: Helps out on insurance tally

    Kupari notched an assist in Thursday's 4-0 win over the Stars.

    Kupari found Arthur Kaliyev on a partial breakaway for the Kings' second goal of the game. The assist was Kupari's third of the year to go with three goals in 23 contests. The Finn has added 17 shots on net, 22 hits and 12 PIM while filling a bottom-six role. The Kings' top six is fairly well-established at this point, so Kupari isn't likely to take on a bigger role this season, barring injuries.

  • Kings' Rasmus Kupari: Opens scoring early

    Kupari scored a goal in Sunday's 5-1 win over the Oilers.

    Kupari struck just 2:01 into the game, and the Kings never trailed. The 21-year-old Finn had gone nine games without a point entering Sunday. Kupari has three goals, two assists, 17 shots on net, 21 hits, 12 PIM and a minus-1 rating while filling a bottom-six role through 21 contests.

  • Kings' Rasmus Kupari: Big day on power play

    Kupari scored a goal and an assist, both on the power play, in Saturday's 5-2 win over the Canadiens.

    The 21-year-old fired home what proved to be the game-winning goal early in the third period to give the Kings a 3-1 lead, then helped set up Alex Iafallo for L.A.'s final tally later in the frame. Kupari, a first-round pick in 2018, came into Saturday with only two points (both goals) in 13 career NHL games, but if he keeps getting chances with the man advantage, he'll have some intriguing upside in deeper fantasy formats.

  • Kings' Rasmus Kupari: Tallies in loss

    Kupari scored a goal on four shots, doled out two hits and added two blocked shots in Thursday's 3-2 loss to the Jets.

    Kupari scored at 11:23 of the first period to earn his first goal and point this season. The Finn has added seven shots on net, four hits, two PIM and a plus-1 rating in six contests, playing mainly in a bottom-six role. A first-round pick from 2018, Kupari's path to more playing time at his natural center position is mostly blocked, though he could work his way up the lineup if he switches to the wing.

  • Kings' Rasmus Kupari: Brought up to big club

    Kupari was recalled by the Kings on Wednesday, John Hoven of SiriusXM NHL Network Radio reports.

  • Kings' Rasmus Kupari: Reassigned to AHL

    Kupari was sent down to AHL Ontario on Tuesday, John Hoven of SiriusXM NHL Network Radio reports.

    Kupari has been held without a point while averaging 11:19 of ice time through five games this season. The 21-year-old forward could be back on the roster for Thursday's game against the Jets unless the Kings are expecting reinforcements to come off injured reserve.

  • Kings' Rasmus Kupari: Promoted to big stage

    Kupari was recalled from AHL Ontario on Saturday, John Hoven of SiriusXM NHL Network Radio reports.

    Kupari is certainly worth keeping an eye on, as the Kings drafted him 20th overall in 2018. A playmaker with a great deal of top-line speed, Kupari has drawn comparisons to elite forward Sebastian Aho, and the former is also somewhat familiar with the NHL, having registered a goal through seven contests with the Kings in 2020-21.

  • Kings' Rasmus Kupari: Sent to AHL affiliate

    Kupari will be assigned to AHL Ontario, John Hoven of SiriusXM NHL Network Radio reports.

    Kupari will head to the minors for the final two games of AHL Ontario's season. The 21-year-old forward picked up one goal through seven NHL appearances this year.

  • Kings' Rasmus Kupari: Scores first NHL goal

    Kupari scored a goal on two shots and added two hits in Saturday's 3-2 loss to the Avalanche.

    Kupari netted his first career goal in the third period, but the Kings couldn't find an equalizer. The 21-year-old Kupari's goal was his first point in four appearances. A first-round pick from 2018, the Finn will likely be in the mix for a full-time role during training camp ahead of the 2021-22 campaign.

  • Kings' Rasmus Kupari: Promoted from taxi squad

    Kupari was added to the Kings' roster from the taxi squad Saturday.

    Kupari will likely slot into Saturday's lineup against Colorado. The 2018 first-round pick struggled in his first taste of NHL action earlier this season, logging two shots and a minus-2 rating without a point over three games in early March.

  • Kings' Rasmus Kupari: Joining taxi squad

    Kupari will be promoted to the Kings' taxi squad, John Hoven of SiriusXM NHL Network Radio reports.
