Report: Kopitar to have tests on injured knee
The agent for Anze Kopitar said the Los Angeles Kings forward will have tests on an injured knee but it is "nothing to be alarmed with," the Los Angeles Times reported Saturday.

The agent for Anze Kopitar said the Los Angeles Kings forward will have tests on an injured right knee but "it's nothing to be alarmed with," the Los Angeles Times reported Saturday.

Helene Elliott reported via Twitter that agent Pat Brisson said Kopitar would have tests in the next day or two but the player doesn't believe the situation to be serious.

"It’s very minor," Brisson told the newspaper. "Whether that means [he's out] a week, two weeks or 10 days, I don’t know."

Kopitar, playing for Mora in Sweden, reportedly left Saturday's game with the injury.

Kopitar had 25 goals and 51 assists (76 points) in 82 regular-season games for the Kings last season. He led all players in the Stanley Cup Playoffs with eight goals, 12 assists and a plus-16 rating as the Kings won their first championship.

Quote of the Day

He's only 17 but he can see the ice so well and he moves the puck and goes to the open ice all the time, so I just think he's a player that is ready to play in the NHL. I'm really looking forward to coaching someone like this.

— U.S. National Junior Team coach Ron Wilson on Auston Matthews, the projected No. 1 pick of the 2016 NHL Draft
