by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kupari scored a goal on two shots and added two hits in Saturday's 3-2 loss to the Avalanche.

A first-round pick from 2018, the Finn will likely be in the mix for a full-time role during training camp ahead of the 2021-22 campaign.

Kings' Rasmus Kupari: Shuffles to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kupari was assigned to AHL Ontario on Tuesday, John Hoven of SiriusXM NHL Network Radio reports.

Kupari didn't make his NHL debut during a two-week stint on the taxi squad. His development will benefit more from handling top-six minutes in the AHL than simply practicing with the big club. The 2018 first-round pick (20th overall) has been quite impressive in the AHL this year, providing eight points through seven games.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kings' Rasmus Kupari: Given green light
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kupari (knee) has been cleared for contact and should be ready for training camp, Arthur Staple of The Athletic reports.

Kupari tore the ACL in his left knee last December, and after more than a year of recovery, he's ready to return to action. The 2018 first-round pick (20th overall) played eight games with AHL Ontario last season and posted six goals and two assists. It may take the 20-year-old a bit to get back to full speed, however, so he'll likely start the season in the minors.

Kings' Rasmus Kupari: Done for season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kupari is expected to undergo surgery to repair a torn ACL in his left knee, sidelining him for the remainder of the season, Jack Harris of the Los Angeles Times reports.

A secondary MRI confirmed that the Finn suffered a torn ACL while representing his country in the World Junior Championship last week. The 20th overall pick in the 2018 NHL Draft had accumulated eight points in 27 AHL games this year in his first season in North America. The hope for the 19-year-old is that he'll be healthy in time to participate in Kings training camp ahead of the 2020-21 campaign.

Kings' Rasmus Kupari: Suffers knee injury Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kings' Rasmus Kupari: Gets Finland call
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kupari has been invited to join the Finnish national team for a tournament in February, Corey Pronman of The Athletic reports.

The Kings made Kupari the 20th overall pick in the 2018 NHL Draft. This call from his national team is certainly an encouraging sign, although of course the Finnish players actually in the NHL weren't able to take invites for this tournament. Los Angeles certainly feels like a team that could be in line for a rebuild soon, and when that happens, Kupari could be one of their first calls. Fans of the Kings may want to keep their eyes on this tournament to see how the speedy Finn does.
