Kings' Austin Wagner: Gathers assist
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wagner picked up an assist along with three shots, two hits and two blocked shots in Friday's 5-2 loss to the ducks.

Wagner has posted four points in his last eight contests, giving him 21 points in 61 appearances this season. He also has 141 hits and 65 shots during the campaign. The fourth-round pick from 2015 has been productive in a fourth-line role, which makes him an interesting option for owners in deeper formats in next year's draft.

Kings' Austin Wagner: Finds twine again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wagner netted a goal on two shots and tossed three hits in Saturday's 3-2 overtime win against the Blackhawks.

Wagner has goals in consecutive games, and four points in his last nine outings. In that span, he's added 32 hits. For the year, Wagner has 20 points (12 goals, eight helpers) and 137 hits in 58 games. He's been a bit lucky with a 20.3 percent shooting rate, which is unsustainable for virtually all players. Expect some scoring regression next year.

Kings' Austin Wagner: Scores 11th goal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wagner potted a goal on two shots and added four hits in Thursday's 3-2 shootout loss to the Canucks.

Wagner is up to 19 points in 57 games in his rookie season, although he's only fired 57 shots on goal. His primary category of interest is hits, of which he has 134 now, giving him a little fantasy value in deeper formats.

Kings' Austin Wagner: Banks assist
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wagner picked up an assist and three hits in Saturday's 4-3 shootout win over the Ducks.

The rookie is up to 18 points (10 goals, eight helpers) and 123 hits in 54 contests while occupying a bottom-six role for the Kings. Wagner averaged just 8:49 of ice time entering the contest, but he's carved out a decent first campaign given the Kings' 30th-ranked offense. He may be worth a look in deeper formats that count hits.

Kings' Austin Wagner: Returns with goal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wagner (lower body) was the only King to beat Pekka Rinne in Thursday's 3-1 loss to the Predators.

Wagner skated 9:21 in the contest and potted his 10th goal. The rookie has 17 points in 50 games, as well as 110 hits, five of which were delivered Thursday. The fourth-round pick from 2015 has done well in limited time, as he only averages 8:40 a game. It's unlikely he will sustain a shooting percentage of 17.6 for much longer, however.

Kings' Austin Wagner: Expected to play
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wagner (lower body) is expected to return to action Thursday against the Predators, NHL.com's Dan Greenspan reports.

Wagner's return to health will bolster the Kings' depth up front, but it will almost certainly go unnoticed in most fantasy circles, as he's only totaled 16 points in 49 games this campaign. The 21-year-old rookie is expected to return to a bottom-six role, skating with Trevor Lewis and Kyle Clifford on LA's fourth line.

Kings' Austin Wagner: Return forthcoming
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Head coach Willie Desjardins said Wednesday that Wagner (lower body) should be available for Thursday's home game against Nashville, Curtis Zupke of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Wagner has missed the last four games due the injury, but seems to be on the right track for a return. The 21-year-old has been decent this campaign, accumulating 16 points in 49 games. Expect a definitive word on Wagner's status before puck drop Thursday.

Kings' Austin Wagner: Remains out of lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wagner (lower body) is out Sunday versus the Ducks, marking the fourth straight game the winger has missed.

Wagner has posted 16 points in his first 49 games but has missed three straight contests, with Sunday's absence being number four. The Kings don't play again till Thursday, so expect another update on the 21-year-old's status well before the team hits the ice.

March 7, 2019 06:20 PM
Kings' Austin Wagner: Still sidelined
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wagner (lower body) isn't in the projected lineup for Thursday's matchup with the Blues, NHL.com's Dan Greenspan reports.

Wagner's absence will continue to test the Kings' depth up front, but it won't impact many fantasy lineups, as he's only notched 16 points while averaging 8:40 of ice time per contest in 49 appearances this campaign. Another update on the 21-year-old winger's status should surface once he's given the green light to return to game action.

Kings' Austin Wagner: Ruled out Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wagner (lower body) has been ruled out Tuesday against the Canadiens by interim coach Willie Desjardins, who also described him as day-to-day, Jon Rosen of Fox Sports West reports.

Wagner's next chance to return will come Thursday against the Blues. He has nine goals and 16 points in 49 appearances this season.

Kings' Austin Wagner: Doubtful to return against Chicago
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wagner (lower body) is considered doubtful to return to Saturday's game against the Blackhawks, Helene Elliott of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Wagner suffered the injury when he awkwardly tumbled into the boards after trying to lay a hit on Chicago's Gustav Forsling in the second period of Saturday's contest. It's safe to assume the 21-year-old winger won't return against the Blackhawks, so he'll have to wait for Tuesday's matchup with Montreal for his next opportunity to taste game action.

Kings' Austin Wagner: Effective with limited minutes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wagner registered a point and an assist during 8:23 in Monday's loss to the Lightning.

The 21-year-old winger adds a physical touch to the fourth line, but he contributed offensively with an assist on Alex Iafallo's goal in the third period and added a score of his own to put the Kings in the lead. Wagner now has his fourth two-point game of the season and 16 points in his rookie campaign.

Kings' Austin Wagner: Sparks offense in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wagner scored two goals in Monday's 6-4 loss to the Capitals.

Despite playing just 7:25 on the Kings' fourth line, the rookie came through with the second multi-goal performance of his brief NHL career. Wagner has seven goals and 12 points through 40 games, and while the 21-year-old has a potentially bright future, his current role gives him little fantasy appeal.

Kings' Austin Wagner: Rejoins parent club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wagner was called up from AHL Ontario on Thursday.

As expected, Wagner has returned to the parent club with the 2019 All-Star Weekend elapsed. The rookie presumably will reprise his role as a bottom-six winger, though Wagner's been rather efficient based on him producing nine points between 34 games and 8:24 of average ice time, so keep that in mind if you need a budget-friendly DFS filler.

Kings' Austin Wagner: Reassigned to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wagner was reassigned to AHL Ontario on Tuesday.

The Kings are off until Feb. 2 due to the All-Star break and ensuing bye week, but Wagner will be kept busy in the AHL. Selected in the fourth round (99th overall) of the 2015 draft, the winger has shown plenty of promise based on four goals and five assists through 34 games and 8:24 of average ice time.

Kings' Austin Wagner: In action Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wagner (upper body) will return to the lineup versus the Coyotes on Thursday, Curtis Zupke of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Wagner no doubt benefited from the extra time off, as he will miss just one game due to his upper-body issue. The winger was averaging a mere 8:37 of ice time in his previous 15 outings before sustaining his injury, but still managed to rack up seven points. If he can take on a bigger role -- especially with Jeff Carter (upper body) sidelined -- Wagner could offer decent mid-range fantasy value.

Kings' Austin Wagner: Out against Vegas
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wagner (upper body) will not play Sunday against the Golden Knights, Helene Elliott of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Wagner took a hard hit from Erik Karlsson on Saturday that resulted in a two-game penalty for the Sharks' blueliner. The 21-year-old has three goals and seven points in 24 games this season. His next chance to suit up will be Thursday against Arizona.

Kings' Austin Wagner: Suffers injury Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wagner isn't expected to return to Saturday's game versus the Sharks due to an upper-body injury, Helene Elliott of the Los Angeles Times reports.

In the second period, Wagner dumped off a pass and was immediately hit hard by Sharks defenseman Erik Karlsson. The hit was high and Wagner was clearly laboring on the way to the bench. It appears unlikely that he'll be ready to play Sunday versus the Golden Knights.

Kings' Austin Wagner: Summoned from AHL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wagner was recalled from AHL Ontario on Friday.

Wagner was shuffled back to the minors Wednesday, but he has rejoined the Kings following the roster freeze. He should join the action Saturday against the Sharks and is coming off an offensive spurt in the last two games, during which he racked up three points.

December 19, 2018 06:32 PM
Kings' Austin Wagner: Sent back to AHL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wagner was reassigned to AHL Ontario on Wednesday, Curtis Zupke of the Los Angeles Times reports.

The AHL's Reign will play Friday against the Gulls in San Diego, but there's a chance that Wagner will return to the NHL in time for Saturday's road game against the Sharks. A speedy rookie, Wagner has posted three goals and seven points over 23 games at the top level. He's only averaging 8:42 of ice time for the weakest offense in the league, but the offensive potential is evident.
