Kings' Austin Wagner: Tallies in loss Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wagner scored a goal in Monday's 4-2 loss to the Golden Knights.

Wagner opened the scoring at 9:41 of the first period. The 23-year-old ended a nine-game point drought with the tally. He's seen mostly bottom-six usage in 2020-21 with eight points, 58 shots on net, 82 hits and a minus-7 rating through 33 contests.

Kings' Austin Wagner: Ends slump with helper
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wagner picked up an assist, two shots on goal and a pair of hits in Monday's 2-1 loss to the Sharks.

Wagner's helper on Matt Roy's goal in the second period was the former's first point in seven appearances in March. Wagner has been limited to bottom-six duties when he's in the lineup. The 23-year-old has seven points, 39 shots, 58 hits and 11 PIM through 23 games.

Kings' Austin Wagner: Snipes on breakaway
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wagner scored on his lone shot and added two hits in Saturday's 4-3 overtime loss to Minnesota.

Wagner blocked a shot in the defensive zone to spring himself on a breakaway, then muscled a shot through netminder Kaapo Kahkonen to pull the Kings to within 3-2 in the second period. It was the third goal of the year for Wagner, who entered the night stuck in a six-game goal rut.

Kings' Austin Wagner: Posts assist in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wagner notched an assist and four hits in Wednesday's 2-1 win over the Blues.

Wagner set up Andreas Athanasiou for what was the game-winning goal late in the second period. The helper snapped a four-game point drought for Wagner. In 14 games this year, the 23-year-old has five points, 23 shots on goal and 36 hits. Expect the Alberta native to continue working in a bottom-six capacity.

Kings' Austin Wagner: Lights lamp Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wagner scored a goal on four shots, doled out two hits and added two PIM in Thursday's 6-2 win over the Sharks.

Wagner's first-period tally, on a feed from rookie blueliner Tobias Bjornfot, stood as the game-winner Thursday. Wagner has two goals and an assist in his last four games, although he saw less than 10 minutes for the second consecutive outing. The limited usage puts a dent in Wagner's fantasy appeal, but the 23-year-old has four points, 19 hits and 20 shots on net in nine contests.

Kings' Austin Wagner: Points in consecutive games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wagner posted an assist and a team-high five hits in Sunday's 4-3 loss to the Golden Knights.

Wagner had the secondary helper on Jaret Anderson-Dolan's second-period goal. Two of Wagner's three points this year have come in the last two games. The 23-year-old has added 16 hits, 16 shots on goal and a minus-4 rating through seven contests.

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

Wagner scored a goal on a team-high six shots and added four hits in Friday's 5-2 loss to the Golden Knights.

Wagner spoiled Marc-Andre Fleury's shutout bid at 7:47 of the third period. In recent games, the Kings have attempted to get Wagner more offense-friendly assignments. It's encouraging to see the 23-year-old lead the team in shots. Wagner only has two points to go with 15 shots, 11 hits and a minus-5 rating through six appearances this season. While he operates in the top six, Wagner hasn't produced enough to pique the interest of most fantasy managers.

Kings' Austin Wagner: Expected to take larger role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wagner will likely get more opportunities on the Kings' second line over a long-term period, Zach Dooley of LAKingsInsider.com reports.

So far, the Kings haven't stuck to that, as Wagner has averaged just 9:35 of ice time in games against Minnesota and Anaheim, but it's possible they're bringing him along slowly. He's only appeared in five games this season, and Los Angeles isn't in any rush. Given that he wasn't a big scorer at the AHL level, he's probably not going to be much help in most formats, but the opportunities he projects to have make him worth monitoring in case things change.

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.
