Forward sustained a knee injury against Rangers @NHLdotcom

Los Angeles Kings forward Marian Gaborik was placed on injured reserve Saturday.

Gaborik is returning to Los Angeles to be evaluated after he left the Kings' game Friday against the New York Rangers in the first period with a knee injury and did not return, according to LA Kings Insider.

Gaborik scored his 12th goal of the season in the 5-4 overtime win. He has 22 points in 54 games this season. 

The Kings are 2-1-0 on a seven-game road trip that continues Sunday against the New Jersey Devils (12:30 p.m. ET; SN360, FS-W, MSG+, NHL.TV). Los Angeles is carrying extra forwards Kyle Clifford and Andy Andreoff, and has not yet made any call ups from the American Hockey League.

Goaltender Jonathan Quick, who didn't dress against the Rangers or New York Islanders on Thursday, remains day-to-day with an undisclosed injury. Jhonas Enroth started the 5-2 loss to the Islanders and Peter Budaj picked up his first NHL win since the 2013-14 season against the Rangers.
