Congratulations to the LA Kings 2018-19 Player of the Year, Alex Iafallo! 

Iafallo is no stranger to accolades this season, as he was voted Player of the Month in both October and December.

In his sophomore year, the forward has been a bright spot in an otherwise lackluster season. 

After scoring 25 points (9-16=25) in 75 games in his rookie season, he proved he could add to the Kings top line, and racked up 32 points (15-17=32) this year. 

"Always pretty easy playing with those guys," Iafallo said. "I just have to drive the net and put it in. I'm just going to keep trying to get to those areas and keep trying to help the team produce and get some wins."

Iafallo tallied nine points in the last 10 games of December, with seven of those points coming in seven consecutive games. 

"He's playing with a little bit more consistency in his game compared to last year," Dustin Brown said to The Daily News. "As a younger guy, first year in the league, I think he learned a lot. He has open eyes and open ears and absorbs a lot."

"It's paying off for him now and, hopefully, he can keep it going."
