Player Notes

  • De La Rose skates between Drouin, Galchenyuk
    Jacob De La Rose skated between Jonathan Drouin and Alex Galchenyuk on Tuesday at practice.

    Advice: "De La Rose is a guy who grew up being an offensive player and when he turned pro at a young age back home (in Sweden) they made him a defensive player," coach Claude Julien said. "We're hoping he can discover that (offense) a little bit." The trio may play in Wednesday's game against Boston as a combination, but Julien wouldn't confirm that would be the case. 14 minutes ago

  • Mikkel Boedker snaps goal scoring drought
    Mikkel Boedker ended a 12-game goal scoring drought on Monday.

    Advice: Boedker had actually gone longer without a goal than it sounds because he also missed seven consecutive contests due to a lower-body injury in the middle of that slump. As a result, Monday's goal was his first since Nov. 24. He has four markers and 11 points in 34 games this season. Today, 6:05 am

    Advice: It will be Coleman's first game as a healthy scratch this season. He has five goals and 11 points in 42 contests in 2017-18. Today, 5:36 am
  • Jonny Brodzinski took positives from AHL time
    Jonny Brodzinski saw his week in AHL Ontario as a positive.

    Advice: Brodzinski was sent to the minors for the Kings' bye week and then recalled ahead of Sunday's game, though he was ultimately a healthy scratch for the Kings' contest. "Hey, I took it as a good thing," said Brodzinski of his time in the AHL. "It’s kind of tough playing not a lot of minutes, but that’s the role I have to play in. But I want more of a role here and I think that just comes with playing a lot better and going down to Ontario, I was the guy." He has six goals and 14 points in 11 AHL contests this season. With the Los Angeles Kings, he's been limited to two goals and no assists, but that lack of offense is understandable given that he's averaging just 9:36 minutes per game. His small role with the Kings robs him of any potential fantasy value, but he has shown that there's some offensive upside there. Today, 5:30 am
