Walker scored his third goal of the season in Monday's 3-2 loss to the Jets.
Walker found himself in the press box for three straight games recently, but has responded in his second game back in the lineup with the goal. He has eight points in 32 games in his rookie year, firing 44 shots on goal and collecting 35 hits as well. The third-pairing defenseman has yet to make a significant splash for fantasy purposes.
Walker (face) will play Thursday against the Predators, Curtis Zupke of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Walker will return after missing the past two games with his facial injury. The rookie has been a healthy spectator for his fair share of contests, but he's known as a fiery competitor with a willingness to improve his game, so expect him to steadily build upon the four points that he's garnered through 22 contests with the parent club this season.

Walker has missed two games after taking a puck to the face on Feb. 14. It's unclear how long he'll be out, but after Monday, the Kings are off until Thursday in Nashville.
Walker (face) isn't in the projected lineup for Saturday's game against the Bruins, NHL.com's Dan Greenspan reports.
Walker is still recovering after taking a puck to the face during Thursday's 4-3 loss to the Canucks, so Matt Roy will draw into the lineup and make his NHL debut against Boston. The 24-year-old blueliner will hope to heal up in time for Monday's matchup with Washington.
Walker took a puck to the face during Thursday's game against Vancouver and some swelling has led to questions about his status Saturday against the Bruins, Jon Rosen of Fox Sports West reports.
Fortunately, the Kings have ruled out a concussion from the incident, but he's not out of the woods just yet. The team will reevaluate Walker after another night of rest, so a definitive word on his status won't arrive until game day.
Walker was promoted to the Kings on Thursday.
Since tallying an assist in his first NHL game, back on Oct. 23, Walker has managed just a pair of points in his subsequent 18 appearances. He doesn't belong on any fantasy radar at this point in his career.
The Kings assigned Walker to AHL Ontario on Tuesday.
The Kings are off until Feb. 2 due to the NHL's All-Star break, so Walker will head to the minors so he can continue to play during the big club's hiatus. The 24-year-old forward has notched three points in 19 NHL appearances this season.
Walker was promoted from the minors Thursday, Curtis Zupke of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Walker has been back and forth between leagues, as this is the fifth time in December that Walker has been promoted/demoted. The blueliner will likely see some ice time against the Coyotes on Thursday and should continue to play until Alec Martinez (upper body) or Dion Phaneuf (upper body) is given the all-clear to return.
Walker was sent down to AHL Ontario on Monday.
Walker was called up earlier this month and appeared in six games. He picked up zero points and put six shots on net. That being said, due to injuries on the Los Angeles blue line, Walker could find himself called back up again soon.
Walker was recalled from AHL Ontario on Friday.
Walker -- who was sent down ahead of the roster freeze -- should jump back into the lineup with both Dion Phaneuf (upper body) and Alec Martinez (upper body) dealing with injuries. In his previous eight outings, the 23-year-old Walker logged a mere 12:48 of ice time per game, which limits his opportunities and fantasy value.
The Kings assigned Walker to AHL Ontario on Wednesday, Curtis Zupke of the Los Angeles Times reports.
LA decided to demote Walker, Austin Wagner and Michael Amadio to the minors in advance of the upcoming holiday roster freeze, but all three players could be back with the big club ahead of Saturday's game against the Sharks.
Walker was called up from AHL Ontario on Monday, Lisa Dillman of The Athletic reports.
Alec Martinez is out for a week at least with an upper-body issue, which is the reason for Walker's call-up. The 23-year-old may not get a lot of playing time, though, as he will be fighting with Paul LaDue to replace Martinez in Los Angeles' lineup.
The Kings reassigned Walker to AHL Ontario on Saturday, Curtis Zupke of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Walker has averaged just 7:22 of ice time over the Kings' last two contests, so this move doesn't come as much of a surprise. The 23-year-old blueliner will return to a prominent role with AHL Ontario, where he's racked up three goals and six points in seven appearances this season.
Walker was recalled from AHL Ontario ahead of Thursday's game against the Flyers.
The move comes only a day after Walker was sent down to AHL Ontario, having notched an assist in three games with the big club. Back up with Los Angeles, it's possible Walker draws into Thursday night's lineup with Paul LaDue (undisclosed) battling injury.
Walker was sent back to AHL Ontario on Wednesday.
Walker tallied an assist and five shots on goal over three games with the big club, adding a hit and two blocked shots to the mix. The 23-year-old blueliner will now return to AHL Ontario, where he owns six points -- three goals and three assists -- over seven contests this season, but he should remain near the top of the pile to rejoin the Kings should injuries arise along the blue line.
Walker is likely to be promoted to the Kings on Monday, Jon Rosen of Fox Sports West reports.
Walker was a nice offensive weapon last year with AHL Ontario and has picked up where he left off, posting six points in seven contests with the Reign. The 23-year-old could be a solid contributor in Los Angeles and would make sense as a flier in dynasty leagues.
Walker signed a two-year, entry-level contract with the Kings on Tuesday.
Walker clearly impressed team brass with AHL Ontario last season, in which he registered seven goals, 21 assists and a plus-17 rating in 64 contests. Undrafted out of Bowling Green State University, the blueliner will likely continue developing his game in the minors for the duration of his new contract.
