Kopitar extended his point streak to eight games against Anaheim (four goals, 10 assists), becoming the first NHL player to have at least three eight-game point streaks against the Ducks.

  • Kings' Anze Kopitar: Two tallies Saturday

    Kopitar scored a pair of goals on three shots, blocked three shots, added two PIM and went minus-2 in Saturday's 6-5 shootout loss to the Hurricanes.

  • Kings' Anze Kopitar: Slides helper in loss

    Kopitar notched an assist and two shots on goal in Wednesday's 5-2 loss to the Avalanche.

    Kopitar set up Quinton Byfield's goal late in the second period to cut the deficit to 3-2. Now in his 18th season, Kopitar is still the Kings' top-line center. He's produced at least 60 points in every full-length season since 2017-18, and he's shown few signs of slowing down. The 36-year-old signed a two-year extension with the Kings in the offseason, so it's safe to assume he'll remain a prominent part of the team's lineup this season.

  • Kings' Anze Kopitar: Locked up through 2025-26

    Kopitar inked a two-year, $14 million contract extension with LA on Thursday.

    Kopitar has one season left on his eight-year, $80 million contract, so he's now locked up through 2025-26. He had 28 goals and 74 points in 82 contests last season, making it the 14th time in his 17-campaign career in which he's finished with at least 60 points. Kopitar will turn 36 years old in August, so the Kings are taking a bit of a risk by committing to him at a high cap hit for the next three seasons, but the signing will also provide LA with continuity since Kopitar has spent his entire NHL career with the Kings and is now likely to retire wearing the team's jersey.

  • Kings' Anze Kopitar: Posts assist in loss

    Kopitar notched an assist and four hits in Tuesday's 6-3 loss to the Oilers in Game 5.

    Kopitar has two goals and five helpers through five playoff contests, but the Kings are now behind 3-2 in the series. The 35-year-old was reunited with winger Alex Iafallo after Quinton Byfield was demoted to the third line mid-game. Kopitar is talented enough to be productive regardless of linemates, but he should benefit from some familiarity if that change sticks.
