Brendan Lemieux netted his fourth goal of the season in the Kings' 2-1 loss to the Coyotes.

Fantasy Impact: Lemieux is up to five points with 33 hits in 12 games. He is only averaging 10 minutes of ice time on Los Angeles's fourth line so he isn't much fantasy help at this point.

Drew Doughty is skating with his team on Friday which is ahead of his original schedule. He has been in a non-contact jersey but him being out there is a good sign for the Kings and fantasy managers rostering him. He's been out since Oct 22nd with a knee injury.

Fantasy Impact: Check back shortly for the fantasy impact.

Anze Kopitar scored his eighth goal of the year in Thursday's 2-0 win over the Senators.

Fantasy Impact: It was a power play goal for Kopitar, who's been a top-10 fantasy forward this season. He's now up to 16 points (8 goals, 8 assists) through the Kings' first 14 games. As great as he's been, it's hard to envision him maintaining this goal scoring pace, so it might be a good time to sell-high.

Alex Iafallo helped assist two of the fives goals in the Kings win over Toronto on Monday.

Fantasy Impact: Iafallo has been far more productive than we saw early in the season. With the two assists on Monday it marks 6 game straight with at least one point. It appears Alex has broken out of his early season slump and shows he, and his 12 points, belong on starting rosters.

Dustin Brown setup Adrian Kempe in the third period of the Kings' win over the Maple Leafs.

Fantasy Impact: The veteran now has five assists and two goals on the season. Brown hit a five game drought without a point in October and has only one point thus far in November. Keep an eye on Brown but for now he isn't trustworthy enough to start and forget.

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.

Phillip Danault scored two goals and added an assist in Los Angeles' 5-1 road win over the Toronto Maple Leafs on Monday. He finished the game with three points, a plus-3 rating, seven shots, one hit and one block.

Fantasy Impact: Danault made his presence felt in this one by finding the back of the net twice and assisted on Andreas Athanasiou's marker. He saw time on the power play and on the penalty kill, and also won 64 percent of the faceoffs he took. The Kings just opened up their road trip and will see MTL, OTT, and WPG before weeks end. If you need some starts at center this week, he's a good option as LA has won five in a row.

Cal Peterson grabbed his third win of the 2021-22 season by virtue of a 3-2 overtime victory over the visiting Devils.

Fantasy Impact: Peterson has had a better season thus far than his statistics might imply—he's had quality starts in all but one, a disastrous performance against the Blues in which he surrendered seven goals on 40 shots. Peterson is probably best left on the wire for now, but he's a decent option if you're thin at goaltender.

Kaliyev scored the Kings' first goal to tie the game in the third period. He also contributed a shootout goal to help Los Angeles beat St. Louis.

Fantasy Impact: While he plays on L.A.'s fourth line, he does get additional ice time with the team's top PP attack. He has current value only in the deepest of leagues.

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.

Fantasy Impact: Forbort still has some time to be ready for Wednesday's game, but if he is not present in Tuesday's practice, his chances of suiting up will be very slim. He has zero goals, one assist, and a minus-one rating in six games since making his 2019-20 debut on Jan.6.
