Kings' Gabriel Vilardi: Demoted to AHL
Vilardi was sent down to AHL Ontario on Monday.
Vilardi recorded a goal and an assist in his NHL debut and was held scoreless in his next two games. The 20-year-old forward will return to AHL Ontario, where he's recorded 25 points in 32 games.... See More ... See Less
Kings' Alex Iafallo: Records power-play helper
Iafallo notched a power-play assist and two shots on goal in Sunday's 4-2 loss to the Oilers.
Iafallo found Anze Kopitar for the goal at 18:39 of the second period. With five assists in his last six games, Iafallo has only modestly cooled since he posted nine points in 10 outings in January. For the season, the 26-year-old has 37 points, 128 shots and a minus-2 rating in 63 appearances.... See More ... See Less
Kings' Adrian Kempe: Slides pair of helpers
Kempe had two assists (one on the power play) and three shots on goal in Sunday's 4-2 loss to the Oilers.
Kempe has six assists in his last nine games, but he hasn't scored a goal of his own since he potted a pair versus the Golden Knights on Jan. 9. The Swede is up to 28 points in 62 contests, which matches his production from 81 outings last year. He's added 132 shots, 65 hits, 27 PIM and a minus-11 rating.... See More ... See Less
Kings' Dustin Brown: Adds goal to comeback effort
Brown scored a goal on five shots, dished four hits and added two PIM in Sunday's 4-2 loss to the Oilers.
Brown's third-period tally brought the Kings within a goal, but they couldn't find an equalizer. The 35-year-old winger now has 13 markers, 28 points, 143 shots and 120 hits through 59 contests this season. With Tyler Toffoli traded to Vancouver, Brown has retaken the right wing spot on Anze Kopitar's line, which could give him a bit more fantasy value.... See More ... See Less
Kings' Anze Kopitar: Nets tally on power play
Kopitar scored a power-play goal on three shots, blocked four shots and dished two hits in Sunday's 4-2 loss to the Oilers.
Kopitar snapped a 13-game goal drought with his goal. It wasn't all bad during that span -- the Slovenian had 12 helpers between goals. He's up to 56 points (18 scores, 38 assists), 121 shots and a minus-1 rating in 63 appearances this season. Kopitar has a realistic shot at recording his eighth 70-point campaign.... See More ...

Kings' Cal Petersen: Decent effort in loss
Petersen yielded three goals on 30 shots in a 4-2 loss to the Oilers on Sunday.
Petersen was the unlucky goalie tasked with stopping Connor McDavid in the latter's return from a quadriceps injury. The 25-year-old goalie wasn't quite up to task. He dropped to 1-3-0 with a 3.53 GAA and an .897 save percentage in his first four starts this year. Those numbers aren't likely to improve much behind a poor Kings team -- only fantasy owners in deep formats will have much interest in acquiring Petersen.... See More ... See Less
Kings' Ben Hutton: Out sick Sunday
Hutton (illness) will not suit up for Sunday's tilt against the Oilers, Jon Rosen of Fox Sports West reports.
Hutton has four goals and 11 points this season while spending most of his time on the second pairing. The 26-year-old will likely be good to go for Wednesday's contest against Pittsburgh, but Joakim Ryan will fill in while he's out.... See More ... See Less
Kings' Cal Petersen: Guarding crease Sunday
Petersen will start Sunday's home contest against Edmonton, Dennis Bernstein of NHL Network reports.
Petersen was roughed up in his last outing, yielding five goals on 34 shots in a Feb. 18 loss to the Jets. The 25-year-old has allowed 11 goals in three starts since being recalled earlier this month. A matchup against Connor McDavid and the Oilers won't make things much easier for Petersen....

Kings' Tim Schaller: Hits waiver wire
The Kings placed Schaller on waivers Sunday, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports.
Schaller was recently acquired from the Canucks on Monday in a deal that saw Tyler Toffoli head to Vancouver. Schaller suited up in two games with his new club, going pointless across 8:01 of average ice time. He'll likely head to the AHL ranks should he go unclaimed off waivers.... See More ... See Less
Kings' Austin Wagner: Converts penalty shot
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.... See More ... See Less
Kings' Jonathan Quick: Tastes defeat in shootout
Quick allowed only one goal on 31 shots in Saturday's 2-1 shootout loss to the Avalanche.
Quick couldn't make a 1-0 lead from Austin Wagner's penalty shot tally stand, as Ryan Graves tied the game in the second period. Joonas Donskoi then completed the Avalanche's comeback with the lone goal in the shootout. Quick slipped to 13-22-4 despite the good showing. He's got a 2.96 GAA and an .899 save percentage through 39 starts this year. Cal Petersen will likely start Sunday's game against the Oilers to finish off the back-to-back situation.... See More ...

Kings' Jonathan Quick: Starting versus Avs
Quick will start Saturday's game against the Avalanche.
Quick has won his last two starts, and he will face an Avalanche team missing three of its top forwards. Quick will still likely struggle against Nathan MacKinnon and Co. in the contest -- the 34-year-old has an 897 save percentage this season.... See More ... See Less
Kings' Jeff Carter: Will sit for two more games
Jack Harris of the Los Angeles Times reports that Carter (lower body) will miss Saturday's game versus the Avalanche and won't play Sunday, either.
The news means Carter will miss a minimum of three games, already having missed one. According to head coach Todd McLellan, the veteran's status for Wednesday's game remains up in the air, so consider Carter questionable for his team's clash with the Penguins.... See More ... See Less
Kings' Martin Frk: Inks two-year extension
Frk signed a two-year, one-way extension worth $725,000 AAV on Saturday.
Frk has been excellent in his short NHL stint so far, as he's accrued five goals and a helper across eight games. The 26-year-old is in the Kings' plans moving forward, and he'll likely finish the season with the big club.... See More ... See Less
Kings' Kevin Poulin: Signs with Kings
Poulin signed a contract with the Kings on Saturday, Zach Dooley of LAKingsInsider.com reports.
Poulin was on a professional tryout agreement with AHL Ontario, and he's been signed to an NHL deal for the rest of the year. He's currently on the Kings' roster, but he's been placed on waivers. Poulin is expected to clear and finish the season with Ontario.... See More ... See Less
