Player Notes

  • On 10-game scoring drought
    Walker has been held off the scoresheet in his last 10 contests.

    Advice: Walker does have 13 hits and 19 blocks over that 10-game span though, which gives him two goals, nine points, 52 hits and 65 blocks in 46 contests this season. He's averaging just 15:05 of ice time this season, which is down from 18:33 over 123 contests from 2019-20 through 2021-22. Although he should continue to make regular contributions in terms of hits and blocks, his scoring pace isn't likely to increase meaningfully unless his role with the Kings grows. 41 minutes ago
