ESPN.com is reporting that Los Angeles Kings defenseman Willie Mitchell will not play this season due to a knee injury.

Mitchell had surgery on his knee in the offseason and re-injured it during the lockout. He had been trying to rehabilitate his leg during the season, but ESPN's report states that Mitchell had arthroscopic surgery on the injured knee and will miss the remainder of the season.

The veteran blueliner had career-bests of five goals and 24 points in 76 games last season, and was a plus-7 in helping the Kings win the first Stanley Cup in franchise history.

Quote of the Day

If you want to prove people wrong, you've just got to go out and do it. Yeah, we blew 3-2 series leads the last two years, but no one is going remember that if we go out there on Saturday night and beat these guys and go play in the Stanley Cup Final. We need to get back to work and we'll start to do that tomorrow.
