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.
Insight: He did skate before Game 6, but didn't play. Mitchell isn't a big scorer (1 G, 11 A), but he plays solid defense (+14). Still, it's not enough production for most fantasy owners. He has one point in six playoff contests.

Insight: Mitchell's 2009-10 season was cut short to 48 games because of a concussion. There are still lingering concerns about his condition, but Mitchell will be a top-4 defenseman for the Kings when healthy. He won't put up major point totals, but he will be an effective shutdown defenseman for Kings' goaltending.
