Alex Iafallo continues his excellent play on the ice as he earns the Player of the Month award for the second time this season. 

We may be in a new year, but Alex Iafallo continues his 2019 ways, filling the stat sheet on a nightly basis as he beat out Anze Kopitar, Jonathan Quick and Sean Walker for the award. 

The left-winger recorded a personal best nine-game point streak that led into January, scoring 10 points (4-6-10) during that span.

He recorded his first-ever career hat trick on January 30 against the Arizona Coyotes, scoring the Kings' only three goals in their 3-2 overtime win.

If that wasn't enough, in the nine games in January, Iafallo was a team-best plus-one and led the team in shooting percentage (22.2%). 

The third-year New York native tallied nine points (7-2=9) in January and will look to keep his hot streak going as we move into February.
