Kings' Austin Wagner: Pens three-year extension
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wagner signed a three-year, $3.4 million contract extension with the Kings on Tuesday.

Wagner has appeared in 127 games over the past two campaigns with the Kings, notching 18 goals and 32 points while racking up 55 PIM over that span. The 2015 fourth-round pick will likely continue to skate in a bottom-six role for the duration of his extension, which will prevent him from attaining fantasy relevancy in the majority of formats.

Kings' Austin Wagner: Scraps prior to hiatus
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wagner received a five-minute fighting major in the final game prior to the NHL's pause.

Wagner's season before the hiatus didn't really have much in the way of positives, as he notched just 11 points and saw his goal numbers cut in half. He's not fantasy relevant at this time.

Kings' Austin Wagner: Buries sixth goal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wagner netted a goal on two shots and added two hits in Monday's 3-1 win over the Avalanche.

Wagner snapped a six-game point drought with his tally. He's up to 11 points, 124 shots and 144 hits through 64 contests. The 22-year-old winger is stuck in a bottom-six role, which has led to a limited ability to produce offense this season.

Kings' Austin Wagner: Getting inconsistent ice time
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wagner's ice time was less than 11 minutes for the third time in five games Sunday in a 4-1 win over Vegas.

Wagner has yo-yo'ed between getting quality ice time and barely registering 10 minutes over the past five games, in part because he's young and the Kings are experimenting to see how much he can help their rebuild. He's not really a scorer, though, so he's not going to be much help in daily leagues unless you play in a format that counts hits, where he leads the Kings with 139.

Kings' Austin Wagner: Converts penalty shot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wagner scored a goal on a penalty shot, dished two hits and added two PIM in Saturday's 2-1 shootout loss to the Avalanche.

Wagner was hooked by Nikita Zadorov to earn the free shot, which he converted for his fifth goal this season. The 22-year-old is at 10 points, 115 shots, 133 hits and 34 PIM through 57 contests. His lack of offense will keep most fantasy owners away.

Kings' Austin Wagner: Gets back in goal column
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wagner tallied a goal in Wednesday's 5-3 win over the Flames.

Wagner sprang ahead on a breakaway and corralled a pass from Trevor Lewis before tallying the go-ahead goal at 13:00 of the second period. He had gone 22 games without a goal, registering just two assists in that span. Wagner has points in consecutive contests and nine points through 53 outings overall. He's added 122 hits and 109 shots -- his 3.7 shooting percentage is much lower than his 17.9 percent success rate as a rookie last year.

Kings' Austin Wagner: No points in 15 games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wagner posted a minus-2 rating and one shot on net in Tuesday's 4-2 loss to the Capitals.

Wagner's pointless streak is now at 15 games. He's averaged 12:57 per game during that stretch and has fired 27 total shots on net, but the 22-year-old hasn't been able to convert. Wagner will continue to add physicality to the bottom six, however, as he leads the team with 118 hits.

Kings' Austin Wagner: Snaps lengthy goal drought
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wagner scored a goal on four shots and had two PIM in Saturday's 5-4 shootout loss to the Penguins.

Wagner opened the scoring 13 minutes into the game, putting an end to his 22-game goal drought in the process. The goal was his third of the season and his first since Oct. 22. Wagner chipped in 12 goals in 62 games as a rookie last season but might be hard-pressed to match that total as a sophomore.

Kings' Austin Wagner: Registers assist in overtime loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wagner recorded an assist, three shots on goal and three hits in Monday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Sharks.

Wagner had the secondary assist on Adrian Kempe's goal late in the second period. Offense has been hard to come by for Wagner, who entered Monday with no points in his previous six games. The winger has only five points, 40 shots and 49 hits in 20 contests this year.

Kings' Austin Wagner: Tickles twine Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wagner scored a goal on four shots and added two hits in Tuesday's 3-2 win over the Jets.

Wagner scored the opening goal at 10:32 of the first period, providing the Kings with one of three leads they'd enjoy in the contest. It's his second goal of the year, to go with 15 hits and 12 shots on goal in seven appearances.

Kings' Austin Wagner: On scoresheet Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wagner scored a goal on two shots and dished out four hits in a 5-2 loss to the Golden Knights on Sunday.

Wagner's first goal of the season cut the deficit to 2-1 in the first period. The fourth-line winger was a healthy scratch in two games before drawing into both of this weekend's contests. He had a productive rookie year with 21 points and 142 hits in 62 games last season, but it's not really enough to move the needle in fantasy.

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.

March 10, 2019 10:20 PM
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.
