One positive to come from the Los Angeles Kings’ recent injury crisis, is an increase in chances for young players. This has been seen in many areas, including on defense and in Arthur Kaliyev being moved into the top six. It can also be seen in the team’s new third line, nicknamed the Champagne line
The Los Angeles Kings were dealt another serious blow on Saturday, as they announced forward Andreas Athanasiou joined Viktor Arvidsson, Brendan Lemieux, and Mikey Anderson on the injured reserve list. After discussing some options for replacing Lemieux and Arvidsson earlier in the week, it appears the Kings need to find yet another replacement at forward.
