Los Angeles Kings


Kings goaltender Jonathan Quick turned in a solid performance between the pipes Thursday night, stopping 27 of 30 shots faced in the Kings 3-2 loss to the Oilers.

Fantasy Impact: Quick has now allowed three goals in four of his last five games in net for Los Angeles, posting a 3.25 goals against average and .912 save percentage in that span. The veteran netminder has been the victim of lack of offensive support this season, as he has posted a .908 save percentage and 2.67 goals against average in 39 games (17-13-9) between the pipes this season.

The goalkeeper was perfect until 6:29 into the second period where he surrendered his first goal of the game to Daniel Sprong. Peterson held the crease down for the rest of the game until Morgan Geekie snuck one by with just four seconds left in regulation. The Kings got the victory by a score of 4-2.

Fantasy Impact: Peterson stopped 23-of-25 shots-on-goal for a .920 save-percentage. The win puts him at 18-10-1 on the season.

Adrian Kempe contributed two of L.A.'s four goals and kicked in a primary assist for Anze Kopitar's score during their 4-1 win over Anaheim.

Fantasy Impact: All of Kempe's contributions came in the second period. He has eight points in his last four games as he and Kopitar seem to have developed a productive rapport. The 25-year-old also has 144 shots on goal, 57 hits, and 11 blocks on the year.

Fantasy Impact: Iafallo has seven points in his last seven games. He seems to be a consistent option at this point and fantasy managers should enjoy it while it lasts.

Sean Durzi provided secondary assists to Dustin Brown and Anze Kopitar before lighting the lamp himself during the Kings' 6-2 win over the Penguins.

Fantasy Impact: Durzi had his best game of his career to reach the 10-point plateau. It is encouraging to see him score a point on the power play as well. He could be a productive add in fantasy as well as a sneaky value play in DFS.

Garret Sparks blocked 33 of 35 shots in Los Angeles's 3-2 win against Washington.

Fantasy Impact: Sparks is filling in for Cal Petersen while the latter is out due to Covid-19 protocols. He has played sparsely for the past three years and is matchup-dependent for fantasy purposes.

Arthur Kaliyev scored a goal as the L.A. Kings downed the Florida Panthers on Thursday night. He tallied a goal, a plus-1 rating, four shots and one hit.

Fantasy Impact: The Kings were making a quick breakout with three stacked on the side. The puck bounced around and was carried into the Florida zone. Kaliyev came in slightly late and cruised into the slot. He found a good screen and shot it past Sergei Bobrovsky. He has six goals and nine points so far this season.

Olli Maatta finally found the scoresheet in L.A.'s 4-1 victory over the Panthers in Florida. He tallied a point, a plus-3 rating, four shots and two blocks through 20:13 TOI.

Fantasy Impact: Maatta and the Kinds were pressuring and he slid into the corner to open up a passing lane. He found a teammate and sent it but the Florida defender redirected the puck in his own net and that would be his first of 2021.

Dustin Brown scores vs Florida

Dustin Brown buried a goal in Los Angeles' 4-1 victory over the Florida Panthers on Thursday. He finished the game with a point, an even-rating, two shots and one hit.

Fantasy Impact: The goal was a great effort by the seasoned forward as he bullied his way through the neutral zone and two defenders to get to the goalie and tucked in a backhand. The goal is the fourth of the season and 11th point.

Alexander Edler scored his first goal of the season (and 100th of his career) late in the second period but the Kings would not score another in their 3-2 loss.

Fantasy Impact: Edler remains on the second line but does not see much power play time at all. He is a solid +7 on the year with 37 hits and 38 blocked shots. He doesn't score many points but contributes to the other categories consistently.

Brendan Lemieux will miss the next five games without pay for biting Brady Tkachuk of the Ottawa Senators on Nov 27th. He will forfeit $38,750 in pay.

Fantasy Impact: Lemieux will be allowed to return to the ice come December 11th. He has registered four goals and one assist so far this season but carries value if you need hits.

Matt Roy gets two helpers

By Fox Wihlborg

Roy notched two assists in Tuesday's shootout loss to Anaheim

Fantasy Impact: Roy is already not much of an offensive piece, so the return of Doughty and emergence of Sean Durzi will leave him not much of a fantasy option.

Athanasiou scores in Kings win

Tue, Nov 9th 12:08am EST
By Jeremy Farr

Andreas Athanasiou potted a goal a helper to help lift LA over the Maple Leafs to a 5-1 road win on Monday. He finished the game with two points, a plus-3 rating, three shots and one block.

Fantasy Impact: Athanasiou made a nice recovery in the neutral zone and corralled the puck with his skate to get it to his stick. He got around the defense to find himself in the slot all alone and tucked the puck in the seven-hole. It's his first goal of the season.

Carl Grundstrom scored the game-winning goal at the 5:08 minute mark of the third period during the Kings' 2-1 victory versus Minnesota. The goal was his only shot attempt in 12:38 minutes of ice time.

Fantasy Impact: The goal was his second of the season in five games played. He typically plays on the Kings' fourth line with Mike Amadio and Trevor Moore so don't expect a whole lot of scoring out of him this season. Grundstrom came to the Kings in the Toronto trade that sent Jake Muzzin to the Maple Leafs in 2019 and is one of the many prospects on Los Angeles that will be competing for an important role moving forward for the rebuilding franchise. Last season in 13 games played he didn't score a goal but had four assists.
