Description: Kings winger Justin Williams should get the cushy spot on the first line with left winger Marian Gaborik and center Anze Kopitar.
Insight: Williams played like an elite winger in the playoffs (9 goals, 16 assists), now fantasy owners want to see that same level of production in the regular season. He posted 19 goals, 24 assists and 239 shots on goal in 2013-14. Nice, but we need more and our projection have him reaching the 60-point mark for the first time with Los Angeles.
Marian Gaborik, RW9/26/2014 1:24:00 PM
Description: Kings left winger Marian Gaborik could be in for a very good season on a line with Anze Kopitar and Justin Williams.
Insight: Gaborik showed what he could do for LA in the postseason posting 14 goals and 22 points in 26 games. Now if he can just stay healthy and play a full season, he played 41 last year, the sky's the limit. TSN's projection have him scoring 32 times for 54 points.
Anze Kopitar, C9/26/2014 1:20:00 PM
Description: Kings center Anze Kopitar will play between Marian Gaborik and Justin Williams this season which could help him break into the next level.
Insight: Kopitar scored 29 goals and 70 points in 82 games last season and has scored at least 61 points in every full season. But he's only cracked 80 points one time. The addition of Gaborik might change that.
Anze Kopitar, C9/19/2014 9:49:00 PM
Description: Kings head coach Darryl Sutter believes that center Anze Kopitar does not get the recognition for his offensive game according to the Orange County Register.
Insight: Kopitar scored 29 goals and 70 points in 82 games last season. He also led the Stanley Cup playoffs in points. The center will certainly draw attention in standard fantasy leagues as he should go pretty early.
Marian Gaborik, RW6/25/2014 3:03:00 PM
Description: Marian Gaborik has re-signed with the Kings for seven years.
Insight: Los Angeles hit the jackpot in its deadline acquisition of Gaborik for Matt Frattin and two draft picks. He had five goals and 11 assists in 19 regular season games and led the NHL with 14 goals in the Stanley Cup Playoffs to help the Kings win their second title in three years. This is still a risky signing, however, because Gaborik is 32 years old and missed 41 games last season.
Jonathan Quick, G6/24/2014 8:02:00 PM

Insight: If Quick was injured during the playoffs, he sure didn't play like it (16-10, 2.58 GAA in 26 games). The two-time Stanley Cup champion should be ready for the start of the season.
Justin Williams, RWHot6/14/2014 5:12:00 PM
Description: Kings winger Justin Williams took home the Conn Smythe trophy for the 2014 Stanley Cup Playoffs.
Insight: Williams produced nine goals and 25 points in 26 postseason games for the Stanley Cup champions after putting up 19 goals, 24 assists and 239 shots on goal in the regular season. In the seven games in which the Kings faced elimination this postseason, Williams had six goals and five assists.

Description: With the Kings down 2-1 going into the third period and facing a 2-0 series deficit in the Western Conference Finals versus Chicago, Jeff Carter suddenly came to life. He had a hat trick in the final period and L.A. walked away with a 6-2 win.
Insight: The Kings scored the final six goals of the game, five in the third period. The veteran has had an outstanding postseason, putting up 16 points (seven goals) in 16 games.

Description: Los Angeles Kings defenseman Willie Mitchell is questionable for Game 7 of the Western Conference Semifinals Saturday against Anaheim with an upper body injury.
