  • Kings' Austin Wagner: Finishes in single digits

    Wagner managed just eight points in the shortened season, posting four goals and four assists.

    Wagner still has time to improve his offensive capabilities and get back to the level of his 20-point rookie season, but he's certainly trending in the wrong direction. He's not likely to attract a lot of fantasy attention next season.

  • Kings' Austin Wagner: Snipes on breakaway

    Wagner scored on his lone shot and added two hits in Saturday's 4-3 overtime loss to Minnesota.

    Wagner blocked a shot in the defensive zone to spring himself on a breakaway, then muscled a shot through netminder Kaapo Kahkonen to pull the Kings to within 3-2 in the second period. It was the third goal of the year for Wagner, who entered the night stuck in a six-game goal rut.

  • Kings' Austin Wagner: Posts assist in win

    Wagner notched an assist and four hits in Wednesday's 2-1 win over the Blues.

    Wagner set up Andreas Athanasiou for what was the game-winning goal late in the second period. The helper snapped a four-game point drought for Wagner.

  • Kings' Austin Wagner: Lights lamp Thursday

    Wagner scored a goal on four shots, doled out two hits and added two PIM in Thursday's 6-2 win over the Sharks.

    Wagner's first-period tally, on a feed from rookie blueliner Tobias Bjornfot, stood as the game-winner Thursday. Wagner has two goals and an assist in his last four games, although he saw less than 10 minutes for the second consecutive outing. The limited usage puts a dent in Wagner's fantasy appeal, but the 23-year-old has four points, 19 hits and 20 shots on net in nine contests.

  • Kings' Austin Wagner: Points in consecutive games

    Wagner posted an assist and a team-high five hits in Sunday's 4-3 loss to the Golden Knights.

    Wagner had the secondary helper on Jaret Anderson-Dolan's second-period goal. Two of Wagner's three points this year have come in the last two games. The 23-year-old has added 16 hits, 16 shots on goal and a minus-4 rating through seven contests.

  • Kings' Austin Wagner: Finds twine Friday

    Wagner scored a goal on a team-high six shots and added four hits in Friday's 5-2 loss to the Golden Knights.

    Wagner spoiled Marc-Andre Fleury's shutout bid at 7:47 of the third period. In recent games, the Kings have attempted to get Wagner more offense-friendly assignments. It's encouraging to see the 23-year-old lead the team in shots. Wagner only has two points to go with 15 shots, 11 hits and a minus-5 rating through six appearances this season. While he operates in the top six, Wagner hasn't produced enough to pique the interest of most fantasy managers.

  • Kings' Austin Wagner: Expected to take larger role

    Wagner will likely get more opportunities on the Kings' second line over a long-term period, Zach Dooley of reports.

    So far, the Kings haven't stuck to that, as Wagner has averaged just 9:35 of ice time in games against Minnesota and Anaheim, but it's possible they're bringing him along slowly. He's only appeared in five games this season, and Los Angeles isn't in any rush. Given that he wasn't a big scorer at the AHL level, he's probably not going to be much help in most formats, but the opportunities he projects to have make him worth monitoring in case things change.

  • Kings' Austin Wagner: Pens three-year extension

    Wagner signed a three-year, $3.4 million contract extension with the Kings on Tuesday.

    Wagner has appeared in 127 games over the past two campaigns with the Kings, notching 18 goals and 32 points while racking up 55 PIM over that span. The 2015 fourth-round pick will likely continue to skate in a bottom-six role for the duration of his extension, which will prevent him from attaining fantasy relevancy in the majority of formats.

  • Kings' Austin Wagner: Scraps prior to hiatus

    Wagner received a five-minute fighting major in the final game prior to the NHL's pause.

    Wagner's season before the hiatus didn't really have much in the way of positives, as he notched just 11 points and saw his goal numbers cut in half. He's not fantasy relevant at this time.

  • Kings' Austin Wagner: Buries sixth goal

    Wagner netted a goal on two shots and added two hits in Monday's 3-1 win over the Avalanche.

    Wagner snapped a six-game point drought with his tally. He's up to 11 points, 124 shots and 144 hits through 64 contests. The 22-year-old winger is stuck in a bottom-six role, which has led to a limited ability to produce offense this season.

  • Kings' Austin Wagner: Getting inconsistent ice time

    Wagner's ice time was less than 11 minutes for the third time in five games Sunday in a 4-1 win over Vegas.

    Wagner has yo-yo'ed between getting quality ice time and barely registering 10 minutes over the past five games, in part because he's young and the Kings are experimenting to see how much he can help their rebuild. He's not really a scorer, though, so he's not going to be much help in daily leagues unless you play in a format that counts hits, where he leads the Kings with 139.

  • 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.
