TEAM NOTES

  • The Kings were assessed a season low four penalty minutes against Detroit on Sunday night (Oct. 14).

PLAYER NOTES

  • Although the season is just six games old, Michael Cammalleri is on pace to shatter his career high for most goals in one season, established last year when the 25-year-old recorded 34 goals and a team-leading 80 points with the Kings. Cammalleri, who enters play tied for first among NHL goal scorers, has six goals and eight points (6-2=8) through six games this season and he leads the Kings with three multi-point games. By way of comparision, Cammalleri had three goals and four points (3-1=4) in his first six games last season.
  • Cammalleri still has a long way to go before he challenges the Kings team record for fastest 20 goals in one season. The record is shared by Bernie Nicholls, who recorded 20 goals in his first 19 games in 1988-89, and Marcel Dionne, who scored 20 goals in his first 19 games in 1981-82. Nicholls went on to score 70 goals in 1988-89. Dionne finished with 50 goals in 1981-82.
  • Defenseman Rob Blake led the Kings with five blocked shots on Sunday, and Raitis Ivanans led the Kings with seven hits.
  • Jean-Sebastien Aubin, who was activated from the IR, is 1 game away from 200 in the NHL.
  • Scott Thornton is 2 games away from 900 in the NHL.
  • Defensemen Jaroslav Modry (19:19) and Jack Johnson (23:03) registered season highs for time-on-ice vs. the Red Wings and Johnson's TOI led the team.
