    Edler set up defense partner Troy Stecher's opening tally 3:53 into the game. The helper was Edler's second through five contests in this first-round series. The 36-year-old defenseman has added eight shots on net, 10 hits, 14 blocked shots, 14 PIM and a plus-5 rating while serving as a veteran presence in the Kings' top four.

  • Kings' Alexander Edler: Returning from rest

  • Kings' Alexander Edler: Pots go-ahead goal

    Edler scored a goal, blocked three shots and went plus-2 in Saturday's 4-2 win over the Ducks.

    Edler is up to four points in his last six games, and his goal Saturday was the game-winner. The 36-year-old defenseman is up to three tallies, 19 points, 53 shots on net, 56 hits, 65 blocked shots and a plus-18 rating through 40 contests. The Kings will likely make the playoffs, and Edler will be tasked to provide a veteran presence and some offense with Drew Doughty (wrist) already ruled out until next season.

  • Kings' Alexander Edler: Delivers pair of helpers

    Edler notched two assists, two blocked shots, a plus-3 rating and two PIM in Thursday's 4-1 win over the Blackhawks.

    Edler set up an Anze Kopitar goal in the second period that stood as the game-winner. In the third, Edler picked up the secondary assist on Trevor Moore's tally. With seven points and a plus-5 rating in his last nine outings, Edler has reestablished himself as a key part of the Kings' defense. The 36-year-old is at 16 points, 52 shots on net, 55 hits, 62 blocked shots, 32 PIM and a plus-16 rating in 39 contests this season.

  • Kings' Alexander Edler: Provides assist in win

    Edler logged an assist, two PIM and two hits in Saturday's 3-2 win over the Jets.

    Edler has four points in three games since he was rested for a pair of contests. The 35-year-old is making a case to be part of the Kings' starting defense once the playoffs roll around. He's up to 15 points, 46 shots on net, 50 hits, 48 blocked shots and a plus-13 rating in 33 contests in his first season with the Kings.

  • Kings' Alexander Edler: Logs helper in shootout win

    Edler notched an assist in Thursday's 3-2 shootout win over the Flames.

    Since he sat out both games versus the Kraken recently, Edler has bounced back well with three points in his last two outings. He helped out on an Alex Iafallo tally in the second period Thursday. The veteran defenseman is the most experienced healthy blueliner the Kings have available right now. He's earned 14 points, 45 shots on net, 47 blocked shots, 48 hits and a plus-13 rating through just 32 contests this season. He should play a fairly regular role going forward, though the 35-year-old may need the occasional rest here and there.

  • Kings' Alexander Edler: Gets scoring started early

    Edler had a goal and an assist in Wednesday's 4-3 shootout loss to the Oilers.

    Edler notched his second goal of the season to put his team up 1-0 less than three minutes in. He assisted on Carl Grundstrom's second-period goal, giving Edler his fifth multi-point game of the season. That's a surprisingly high number for a guy with just 13 points in 31 games overall, but it likely isn't enough to earn Edler a roster spot in the majority of fantasy formats.

  • Kings' Alexander Edler: Activated from IR, playing Thursday

    Edler (lower body) was activated from injured reserve and will play Thursday against visiting San Jose.

    Edler hasn't played since way back on Dec. 11, missing a total of 36 straight games with the injury. The 35-year-old will look to build upon his 11 points, 43 hits and 39 shots on goal in 18:26 of average ice time over 26 games this season.

  • Kings' Alexander Edler: Ditches non-contact sweater

    Edler (lower body) practiced in a regular jersey Tuesday, John Hoven of SiriusXM NHL Network Radio reports.

    Edler isn't expected back until the end of March but the fact that he has been cleared for contact is certainly a step in the right direction. The defenseman has been out of action for the last 35 games with his last appearance coming Dec. 11 versus Minnesota. Prior to his absence, Edler notched seven points in his last 10 contests and should offer decent fantasy value once cleared to play.

  • Kings' Alexander Edler: Aiming for late-March return

    Edler (lower body) isn't expected to return until late March, Lisa Dillman of The Athletic reports.

    Edler suffered the injury Dec. 11 and has been out ever since, with his absence expected to last a few more weeks. A specific return date for the defenseman hasn't been established yet. Edler has 11 points in 26 games this season and will likely assume a bottom-four role once he returns.

  • Kings' Alexander Edler: Shifted to LTIR

    Edler (lower body) was reclassified for long-term injured reserve Monday.

    Edler has already been sidelined for four games, so his shift to LTIR will only add a few additional games to his recovery timeline. In 10 games prior to suffering his lower-body injury, the veteran blueliner tallied one goal, seven assists and 17 shots on goal while averaging 17:47 of ice time.

  • Kings' Alexander Edler: Moved to IR

    Edler (lower body) was formally moved to injured reserve Sunday, Lisa Dillman of The Athletic reports.

    This news doesn't come as a surprise given that Edler was already expected to be out long-term with the injury suffered Saturday against Minnesota. The veteran defenseman isn't expected back until sometime in the new year, though a more specific timetable for a return has yet to be announced.

  • Kings' Alexander Edler: Will be out long term

    Edler (lower body) is expected to be out long-term after leaving Saturday's game versus the Wild in the first period, Zach Dooley of the Kings' official site reports.

    This isn't surprising, as Edler couldn't put weight on his left leg as he left the ice. An exact timeline hasn't been determined, but it would be surprising to see him play before the start of January at the earliest. The Swede is likely to be placed on injured reserve in the coming days.

  • Kings' Alexander Edler: Leaves with lower-body injury

    Edler (lower body) won't return to Saturday's game versus the Wild.

    Edler was injured on a hit early in the first period, and he couldn't put weight on his left leg as he exited the ice. The 35-year-old has 11 points in 26 appearances this season while playing in a top-four role. Olli Maatta will likely enter the lineup, while Christian Wolanin could be called up from AHL Ontario in Edler's absence. A more detailed timeline could be available in the coming days.

  • Kings' Alexander Edler: Plucks apple Thursday

    Edler notched an assist, two shots on net, two blocked shots and two PIM in Thursday's 4-0 win over the Stars.

    Edler helped out on an empty-net goal by Andreas Athanasiou in the third period. The 35-year-old Edler has contributed seven points in his last nine games. It's an unusually strong run of production for the Swede, who has a goal, 10 assists, 39 shots on net, 42 blocks, 43 hits and a plus-8 rating through 25 appearances overall.

  • Kings' Alexander Edler: Gets 100th career goal in loss

    Edler scored a goal on two shots, dished an assist, added four hits and went plus-2 in Thursday's 3-2 loss to the Flames.

    At 35 years old, Edler was able to get his 100th NHL tally late in the second period of Thursday's game. The Swedish blueliner also saw a shot tipped in by Alex Iafallo in the opening stanza. Edler has 419 points through 947 career games, though his role is more defensive in his first year with the Kings than it was during his long tenure with the Canucks. He's at 10 points, 34 shots, 37 hits, 38 blocked shots and a plus-7 rating through 22 contests this year.

  • Kings' Alexander Edler: Two helpers in Saturday's loss

    Edler notched two assists in Saturday's 5-4 loss to the Hurricanes.

    He had a hand in each of the Kings' first two tallies of the afternoon. Edler has given Los Angeles some solid blue-line depth, but on the season the 35-year-old has only six points, all helpers, in 17 games.

  • Kings' Alexander Edler: Picks up assist in shootout win

    Edler notched an assist, two blocked shots and two PIM in Wednesday's 3-2 shootout win over the Blues.

    Edler hasn't done much on offense to begin 2021-22. He has three assists in 10 games, but the Swede will likely be asked to do more defensively after Drew Doughty (knee) and Sean Walker (knee) exited the lineup. Edler topped 30 points in three straight seasons before struggling with just eight assists in 52 contests last year, and it's tough to imagine the 35-year-old bouncing back much on the scoresheet.

  • Kings' Alexander Edler: Collects pair of helpers

    Edler notched two assists, a plus-2 rating, four shots on goal and four PIM in Saturday's 7-3 loss to the Blues.

    Edler helped out on goals by Alex Iafallo and Carl Grundstrom in the contest. On the negative side of things, both penalties Edler took led to two of the Blues' four power-play goals in the game. The Swede is likely to be leaned on heavily while Drew Doughty (knee) is out of the lineup, but at 35 years old, it's unclear how effective Edler can be. He's logged two assists, 10 shots on net, seven hits, seven blocked shots and an even plus-minus rating in five outings to begin his Kings career.

  • Kings' Alexander Edler: Signs short-term deal with LA

    Edler signed a one-year, $3.5 million contract with the Kings on Wednesday, Pierre LeBrun of The Athletic reports.

    Edler struggled in his final season with the Canucks in 2020-21, picking up just eight helpers while posting a minus-8 rating in 52 appearances. The veteran blueliner still managed to average nearly 21 minutes of ice time, racking up 80 hits and 118 blocks in the process, but his offense fell of a cliff. It's hard to see him rebounding significantly as a point producer with the Kings in 2021-22, so fantasy owners may want to avoid Edler on draft day.
