    Kopitar was out Saturday while dealing with what turned out to be a minor injury. The star center has racked up 26 goals and 70 points through 79 games this season, with 15 of those coming in his last 12 contests. He'll skate on the top line as usual Monday.

    Lizotte managed an assist, two hits and a plus-2 rating in Saturday's 3-1 win over the Ducks.

    Lizotte has two helpers over seven contests in April. The 26-year-old remains a steady presence as a bottom-six forward in the Kings' lineup. He's produced 14 points, 74 shots on net, 61 hits and a plus-12 rating through 60 appearances, a down year compared to the 34-point campaign he put together in 2022-23.

  • Kings' Trevor Lewis: Picks up assist Saturday

    Lewis notched an assist and went plus-2 in Saturday's 3-1 win over the Ducks.

    Lewis set up a Kevin Fiala tally in the third period. The 37-year-old Lewis has two helpers over his last three contests, though he's gone 12 games without a goal. The veteran forward has 16 points, 129 shots on net, 89 hits, 61 blocked shots and a plus-7 rating through 80 appearances as a fixture in the Kings' bottom six.

  • Kings' Akil Thomas: Records first assist

    Thomas registered an assist and two PIM in Saturday's 3-1 win over the Ducks.

    Thomas continues to impress in limited minutes with three goals and an assist over six contests. The 24-year-old has exceeded 10 minutes of ice time just twice. He's added nine shots on net, seven hits and a plus-2 rating. Until the Kings are at full health, Thomas is just about guaranteed a place in the lineup, but it's unclear if that will carry over into the playoffs.

  • Kings' Drew Doughty: Delivers assist Saturday

    Doughty notched an assist and two PIM in Saturday's 3-1 win over the Ducks.

    Doughty has earned a goal and five helpers over his last eight contests. The 34-year-old defenseman is up to 50 points for the season, his second year in a row at that level. He's also reached that milestone five times in his career. Doughty has added 131 shots on net, 140 blocked shots, 108 hits, 44 PIM and a plus-14 rating through 80 appearances in 2023-24.

  • Kings' Viktor Arvidsson: Collects power-play assist

    Arvidsson has earned three goals and four helpers over seven games in April. The 31-year-old winger's numbers are down only because he missed most of the campaign due to injuries. He's at 12 points, 52 shots on net and a plus-3 rating through 16 contests this season -- that's a 60-point pace over a full campaign. Arvidsson could be a useful streaming option with games Monday versus the Wild and Thursday against the Blackhawks to close out the regular season.

Roy has five goals, 25 points, 132 shots on net, 152 hits, 194 blocked shots and a plus-21 rating through 79 appearances this season, putting him one point shy of matching his career-best scoring total from last season.

The 25-year-old center is up to 16 tallies, 40 points, 146 shots on net, 95 hits, 70 PIM and a minus-9 rating through 80 appearances. He's significantly down from his 63 points in 2022-23, but it hasn't helped that the Kings forward spent the vast majority of the campaign on the third line.

  • Kings' Kevin Fiala: Nets insurance tally

    Fiala scored a goal on five shots in Saturday's 3-1 win over the Ducks.
