Anze Kopitar News
Los Angeles Kings center Anze Kopitar has signed a two-year extension with the team. The Slovenian star was set to become an unrestricted free agent next summer, but the new deal now has him tied down until the end of the 2025-26 NHL season. The contract is worth $14 million and comes with a cap hit of $7 million. Kopitar's current cap hit stands at $10 million, so the Kings will open up a nice chunk of money next year with his new contract. The team captain will be turning 36 in August, but Kopitar has still been producing at a very high level and finished last season with 28 goals and 74 points in 82 games. Kopitar has spent all of his career in L.A. and is sitting third on the Kings' all-time scoring list with 1,141 points.
Los Angeles Kings center Anze Kopitar factored in all of the team's goals in Monday's 4-3 Game 1 victory over Edmonton. The Kings captain pushed the game into overtime with a late power-play goal and tallied three assists during the contest. Kopitar became the eighth player in Stanley Cup Playoffs history to factor on both a game-tying goal in the final minute of regulation and the overtime winner. Only three players in Kings history have managed more than four points in a playoff game. Kopitar has been on fire lately and this likely won't be the last big performance from him during the postseason.
Los Angeles Kings center Anze Kopitar finished Thursday's 5-2 victory over Colorado with three assists. Adrian Kempe benefited twice from his work and Kopitar also set up Gabriel Vilardi for his 22nd marker of the season. The Kings captain was all about playmaking here, finishing without a single shot on goal in 21:47 of ice time. As a true veteran, Kopitar has gotten better with each passing week in 2022-23, scoring over half (32) of his points (61) in 26 games since the turn of the year. With him now sitting on 61 points through 66 games, Kopitar has given himself an excellent chance to average at least a point per game for only the second time in his 17-year career.
Los Angeles Kings center Anze Kopitar scored four goals in Tuesday's 6-5 shootout victory against the Jets. It is the second four-goal game of Kopitar's NHL career, as the Kings captain completed a hat trick in the second period to lead the team to a comeback victory and achieve the four-goal mark in a single game for the first time since 2018. Kopitar closed out the month of February with his best performance of the season, as he finished with totals of eight goals and 14 points through nine games in the month. Kopitar's big night brings his season total to 24 goals and 57 points through 62 games to rank second on the team in both categories, while the veteran center remains a quality option across all fantasy formats.
