Iafallo agreed to a two-year, $4.85 million contract extension with the Kings on Wednesday, Jon Rosen of Fox Sports West reports.
It appeared as though Iafallo and the Kings were headed to arbitration, but the two sides were ultimately able to work out a fair deal before the hearing. The 25-year-old appeared in all 82 of his squad's games during the 2018-2019 campaign and is expected to play a key role for Los Angeles in the future.
Iafallo filed for arbitration Friday.
Iafallo played all 82 games in 2018-19, scoring 15 goals and finishing with 33 points in his second full NHL campaign. The 25-year-old averaged 1:38 of power-play time with the Kings a year ago and appears to be part of the team's future. Expect the two parties to iron out a deal before the arbitration hearing.
Iafallo was given a qualifying offer by the Kings on Sunday, Curtis Zupke of the Los Angeles Times reports.
The 25-year-old will receive a base salary of $832,500 if he signs the offer. Iafallo saw an uptick in points in his second full year in the league last season, potting 15 goals and 33 points in 82 games. The move is likely precautionary in order to avoid losing the winger in free agency while the two sides work out a more permanent deal.
Iafallo dished a pair of helpers in Thursday's 4-2 win over the Sharks.
Iafallo hadn't etched his name on a scoresheet since Feb. 26, but he, Anze Kopitar and Dustin Brown each contributed a pair of points in the comeback win. The second-year winger is up to a career-high 30 points in 73 games, and his 16 assists match his mark from last season. He's in a position to succeed, skating mostly on the top line this season, although the Kings' 30th-ranked offense (2.36 goals per game) has limited that favorable deployment.
Iafallo scored his 13th goal of the season on four shots in a 3-2 loss to the Capitals on Monday.
Iafallo has goals in consecutive games. He also delivered two hits in the contest. Iafallo averages just under two shots a game and has recorded five of his 26 points on the power play, making him worth a look in deeper formats.
Iafallo's goal in a 4-2 loss to the Bruins on Saturday gave him 25 points on the season.
Iafallo needed 75 games last year to reach that mark, but has done so in only 58 games this year. The undrafted 26-year-old has been a pleasant surprise this season, but playing for the Kings has pegged him with a minus-10 rating, and he doesn't record enough hits (under one per game) to justify much fantasy attention.
Iafallo scored a power-play goal in Saturday's 5-4 overtime loss to the Bruins.
He got the Kings on the board in the second period with his 11th goal of the season, but his first in nine games. Iafallo's 24 points in 55 games won't land him on the fantasy radar in most formats, but his role with the man advantage does make him a potential DFS flier in the right matchup.
Iafallo netted a goal versus Pittsburgh on Saturday.
Iafallo ended a six-game pointless streak and eight-game goal drought with his tally. The 24-year-old needs just three more points to best his 25 from his rookie campaign.
Iafallo scored a goal and an assist, the latter coming on the power play, in Saturday's 3-2 overtime win over the Sharks.
The 25-year-old is dialed in at the moment, marking the scoresheet in six straight games and totaling three goals and eight points during that stretch. Iafallo is looking comfortable in a top-line role, and while eight goals and 20 points in 36 games isn't an elite scoring pace, it's a big improvement on what he produced as a rookie last season.
Iafallo scored a power-play goal and added an assist at even strength in Saturday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Penguins.
He's now hit the scoresheet in four straight games, although the goal was Iafallo's first in 10 contests. The 24-year-old now has six goals and 16 points through 34 games, and with his power-play time increasing, his fantasy value is also on the upswing.
Iafallo delivered a primary assist in Monday's 3-1 road loss to the Red Wings.
Iafallo slid the puck right at Jimmy Howard for a soft shot, but Detroit's goalie was unable to cover it up before Kings captain Anze Kopitar scored on the rebound. Iafallo continues to skate on the top line, but the second-year forward has only five goals and seven assists through 31 games this season. No team averages fewer goals than Los Angeles at 2.2 per game, and it's mind blogging to think that there is any first-line skater who doesn't warrant universal ownership in fantasy leagues, but Iafallo just may be an exception unless your pool has extremely deep rosters.
Iafallo scored twice -- including an empty-net dagger -- as the Kings skated off with a 4-2 home win over the Red Wings on Sunday.
A strong two-way player, Iafallo has crafted a tidy plus-4 rating to complement three points through his first pair of regular-season games this season. The Kings will continue icing him for approximately 15 minutes per game, though he could exceed that benchmark whenever LA is particularly busy on the penalty kill.
Iafallo registered an even-strength assist over 13:13 of ice time in Friday's 3-2 overtime home loss to the Sharks.
Don't let the top-six assignment fool you; Iafallo hardly sees the ice with the extra man. However, the New York native plays a sound two-way game, and there's a lot to like about how he performs in 5-on-5 situations, having delivered nine goals and 14 assists at even strength as a rookie.
Iafallo opened the scoring for the Kings in Sunday's Game 3 loss to the Golden Knights.
The rookie went top shelf for his first career playoff goal. Iafallo carried an upper-body injury designation late in the regular season, but he hasn't missed a beat in the playoffs and is even getting some rink run alongside captain Anze Kopitar. However, the Kings face a must-win Game 4 on Tuesday.
Iafallo (upper body) is on the ice for warmups ahead of Game 1, indicating he will play, Steve Carp of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.
Iafallo's presence in the rushes at morning skate suggested this would be the case, but it can now be considered official. He's slated to skate on the top line for the Kings alongside Anze Kopitar and Dustin Brown, but his absence from the power play limits the winger's upside in postseason pools.
Iafallo (upper body) is feeling better and could be ready for Wednesday's Game 1 against Vegas, Curtis Zupke of the Los Angeles Times reports.
After having missed the final four games of the regular season due to the injury, Iafallo would be a welcome addition to the lineup if healthy. In 75 games this season, the 24-year-old forward recorded nine goals and 25 points while logging just over 15 minutes of ice time per contest. Look for the Kings to offer additional information regarding Iafallo ahead of Wednesday's contest.
Iafallo (upper body) won't be in the lineup for Thursday's game against Minnesota.
Iafallo resumed skating Monday, so he's definitely trending in the right direction, but the Kings have yet to release any details regarding a potential timeline for his return to game action. Tanner Pearson will likely continue to skate on LA's top line until Iafallo is given the green light to return.
Iafallo (upper body) won't play Monday against Colorado, Jon Rosen of Fox Sports West reports.
Over Iafallo's last 10 games he's only notched one assist, so perhaps he's been dealing with a lingering issue, as it's currently the second coldest stretch of his entire season. The 24-year-old did partially skate on his own after the morning practice Monday, so Thursday against Minnesota is certainly a possible return date. While he remains out, Tanner Pearson should continue to skate on the first line.
Iafallo is day-to-day with an upper-body injury, Helene Elliott of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Curtis Zupke of the LA Times posted the Kings' lines for Friday night's road game against the Ducks, with Iafallo omitted from his usual spot on the top-line left wing. It looks like Tanner Pearson will play in that spot instead, so adjust your fantasy lineups accordingly.
Iafallo scored twice in Thursday's win over Columbus.
It was the first goal in 12 games for Iafallo, who is up to 23 points in 63 contests on the season. The 24-year-old is valuable in fantasy due to his top-line role, but he isn't seeing power-play time and the goal scoring has been really inconsistent. If he can become more consistent, Iafallo has the talent to be worth an add in a deeper league.
