  • Kings' David Rittich: Handed loss Monday

    Rittich allowed four goals on 31 shots in Monday's 4-2 loss to Edmonton.

    Rittich played with a lead for over half of the contest, but the Oilers scored three unanswered goals starting with Leon Draisaitl's power-play marker late in the second. The Oilers got stronger as the game progressed, firing 23 shots in the final 2 frames and Rittich ultimately ended up with an .871 save percentage in the contest. In his last six games, the 31-year old netminder has gone 3-3-0 with 18 goals allowed. Rittich's upside is capped compared to true starting goalies as the Kings have been very inconsistent this season.

  • Kings' David Rittich: First off Monday

    Rittich was the first goalie off the ice at the morning skate, Zach Dooley of LA Kings Insider reports, indicating he will defend the road net Monday against Edmonton.

    Rittich is coming off a 22-save performance in Saturday's 3-2 shootout win over Anaheim. He also earned a 26-save shutout victory against the Oilers on Feb. 10. Over 17 appearances this campaign, Rittich has compiled a 9-3-3 record with a 2.21 GAA and a .917 save percentage. Edmonton sits fifth in the league this season with 3.55 goals per game.

  • Kings' David Rittich: Wins in shootout

    Rittich stopped 22 of 24 shots in Saturday's 3-2 shootout win over the Ducks.

    Rittich stopped all of the Ducks' even-strength shots, as both of his goals allowed were on special teams -- one shorthanded and the other on the power play. The Kings' stout defense allowed only 13 shots in the final two frames and none in the extra period. This was Rittich's fifth win in his past seven games dating back to Jan. 31. Rittich is a risky but potentially rewarding fantasy netminder who works best as a streaming option against weaker opponents.

  • Kings' Drew Doughty: Scores on power play

    Doughty picked up one goal and one assist in a 3-2 shootout win over Anaheim on Saturday.

    Doughty produced both points on the power play, including the game-tying goal in the second period. It was another workhorse effort for him, as he was on the ice for a whopping 27:34 of ice time. Over his past eight games, Doughty has produced two goals and four assists. His recent form and the Kings' strong play make him a valuable defenseman with the potential for continued point production.

  • Kings' Kevin Fiala: Two points in win

    Fiala scored a goal on five shots and added an assist in Saturday's 3-2 shootout win over the Ducks.

    After the Ducks scored on the power play in the first period, Fiala answered with one of his own for his 16th on the year. He added a secondary assist in the second period on a Drew Doughty goal, which also came on the man advantage. Fiala has found the back of the net in three straight outings following a five-game pointless skid out of the All-Star break. Fantasy managers should be encouraged by his recent scoring surge, hoping for a second-half run of points.

  • Kings' Adrian Kempe: Plucks pair of apples

    Kempe produced two assists in Saturday's 3-2 shootout win over the Ducks.

    The Kings scored only twice during regulation, and Kempe assisted on both of them. He also added five shots, a hit and a minus-1 rating in 20:40 of ice time. Kempe is on a four-game point streak, providing two goals, four assists and 19 shots during that span. His recent performance serves as a reminder of his clutch scoring ability and offensive potential -- he collected 41 goals last season. With the playoffs approaching, his presence on the Kings' top line bodes well for his future fantasy production.

  • Kings' Mikey Anderson: Out week-to-week

    Anderson suffered an upper-body injury Thursday against Nashville and is week-to-week, Dennis Bernstein of The Fourth Period reports.

    Anderson will not accompany the team for their upcoming three game road trip to Western Canada. He has a goal, 14 assists, 104 blocked shots and 91 hits in 55 games this season. The Kings recalled Jordan Spence on Saturday to replace Anderson in the lineup.

  • Kings' David Rittich: Expected to start vs. Ducks

    Rittich will guard the home net Saturday versus Anaheim, Zach Dooley of the Kings' official site reports.

    It'll be the second straight start for Rittich after he allowed two goals on 19 shots in a loss to Nashville. The 31-year-old netminder is 8-3-3 on the season with a .918 save percentage and a 2.24 GAA. The Ducks are averaging 2.61 goals per game, the fourth-lowest mark in the league.

  • Kings' Viktor Arvidsson: Shifts to LTIR

    Arvidsson (lower body) was put on long-term injured reserve Saturday.

    Arvidsson won't be eligible to play until at least March 16 against Dallas. He has supplied two assists, 12 shots on goal and four blocked shots while being limited to just four appearances this season. In a corresponding move, Jordan Spence was recalled from AHL Ontarioo.

  • Kings' Jordan Spence: Back in NHL

    Spence was recalled from AHL Ontario on Saturday, per the NHL media site.

    Spence was sent down to the minors Wednesday and played that night versus Abbotsford, putting two shots on net and picking up a minor penalty in a 2-1 shootout loss. He has 16 assists, 46 hits and 35 blocked shots in 44 NHL games this season. It's unclear at this time if Spence will play Saturday versus the Ducks.

  • Kings' Adrian Kempe: Helps out on power play

    Kempe logged a power-play assist, seven shots on goal, two PIM and a minus-2 rating in Thursday's 4-1 loss to the Predators.

    Kempe has remained a steady scorer in February with two goals and four assists over seven appearances this month. The 27-year-old forward is up to 49 points (15 on the power play), 172 shots on net, 79 hits, 50 PIM and a plus-9 rating through 55 outings. Kempe was back on the top line Thursday after moving around when Viktor Arvidsson (lower body) was briefly in the lineup earlier in the month. Kempe should continue to be a solid source of points and grit.

  • Kings' Anze Kopitar: Produces power-play helper

    Kopitar notched a power-play assist and went minus-2 in Thursday's 4-1 loss to the Predators.

    Kopitar has gotten on the scoresheet in five of seven games in February. The center has two goals and three helpers this month, though he's also gone minus-4, an unusual lack of defensive success for the two-way star. He's racked up 46 points (16 on the power play), 96 shots on net, 46 blocked shots and a plus-8 rating through 55 outings.

  • Kings' Kevin Fiala: Scores against former team

    Fiala scored a power-play goal on two shots and added two PIM in Thursday's 4-1 loss to the Predators.

    Fiala has two goals and one assist over three games versus his former team this season, but he was the only King to score Thursday. The 27-year-old has tallied in consecutive contests following his five-game slump coming out of the All-Star break. The winger is up to 15 goals, 30 helpers, 143 shots on net and 52 PIM through 55 appearances in a top-six role.

  • Kings' David Rittich: Loses to Nashville

    Rittich stopped 17 of 19 shots in Thursday's 4-1 loss to the Predators. The last two goals were empty-netters.

    It was a close game for most of the time until Colton Sissons and Jeremy Lauzon stretched the lead with empty-netters in the third period. Rittich has won four of his last six outings, but his performance has been all over the place in that stretch. He's at 8-3-3 with a 2.24 GAA and a .918 save percentage through 16 appearances. With Cam Talbot improving in recent games, Rittich may soon find himself in a split for playing time.
