Alexander Edler News
Los Angeles Kings defenseman Alexander Edler (lower body) is expected back in the lineup Thursday as his team hosts the San Jose Sharks. The 35-year-old blueliner has been sidelined since December 11 when he sustained an injury against the Minnesota Wild. Edler has just 11 points (one goal, 10 assists) through 26 games played this season but also has a plus-8 rating. He is projected to skate with Sean Durzi as the Kings' second defensive pair.
Los Angeles Kings defenseman Alexander Edler (ankle) has been played on Long-Term Injured Reserve. The veteran rearguard has already missed four games and is set for a lengthy spell on the sidelines. Edler fractured his left ankle on Dec. 11, so he'll indeed need quite some time to get healthy again. The Swede has done a good job for the Kings this season with 11 points, 43 hits and 42 blocks in 26 games. The Kings also moved Sean Walker (knee) on Long-Term Injured Reserve, and he's already ruled out for the season.
Los Angeles Kings defenseman Olli Maatta will enter the lineup on Tuesday against Tampa, replacing Alexander Edler (lower body) on the second defensive pairing. The Swedish blue-liner was injured early in Saturday's 2-1 win over Minnesota, and the team has placed him on Injured Reserve. Maatta has been a healthy scratch for six consecutive games. He's notched two points in 15 games with 10 shots, 12 hits and 25 blocks. The 27-year-old will have an opportunity to impress, but he's not a guy fantasy managers should look at.
Los Angeles Kings defenseman Alexander Edler broke into the goal column on Thursday night against the Calgary Flames. Edler, in his younger days, was like a Swiss-Army knife when it came to padding fantasy hockey stat categories. Thursday night turned the clock back a little bit. Edler scored with less than two minutes left in the second period and added an assist in the first period, which opened the scoring. He had two shots on goal, four hits, and a blocked shot on goal. Edler now has 10 points in 22 games, making last season appear to be more of an outlier.
