Top Viktor Arvidsson News

  • Kings' Viktor Arvidsson: Lands on IR

    Arvidsson (lower body) was placed on injured reserve Thursday, Russell Morgan of Hockey Royalty reports.

    Arvidsson is considered week-to-week with the lower-body injury he sustained during Tuesday's game versus the Blue Jackets, so this move doesn't come as a surprise. The 30-year-old winger made his season debut last Thursday against New Jersey after missing the first 50 games of the campaign while recovering from back surgery, but it isn't clear if this latest issue is related to that injury. Morgan believes Arvidsson could eventually land on long-term injured reserve, so it seems like he's probably facing another extended absence.

  • Kings' Viktor Arvidsson: Labeled week-to-week

    Arvidsson (lower body) is out week-to-week, Kevin Weekes of ESPN reports.

    Arvidsson was hurt on his first shift in Tuesday's game versus the Blue Jackets. The 30-year-old winger was playing in his fourth game of the season, though it's unclear if his current lower-body injury is at all connected to the back surgery that kept him out for the first four months of the campaign.

  • Kings' Viktor Arvidsson: Hurt early in Tuesday's game

    Arvidsson (lower body) won't return to Tuesday's game versus the Blue Jackets.

    Arvidsson was injured on his first shift, and he appeared to have trouble putting weight on his left leg as he exited the ice. This was just his fourth game of the season after undergoing back surgery. It's unclear if he'll be able to play against the Predators on Thursday -- if not, Jaret Anderson-Dolan would likely join the lineup.

  • Kings' Viktor Arvidsson: Collects second helper

    Arvidsson posted an assist, four shots on goal and two blocked shots in Sunday's 2-1 win over the Penguins.

    Arvidsson was scoreless in his season debut Thursday, but he's logged a helper in each of the last two games. It's encouraging that he played in both halves of this weekend's back-to-back, suggesting that his previous back injury is unlikely to negatively impact his playing time down the stretch. Arvidsson has immediately returned to a second-line role and should have some fantasy value in standard formats if his offense is steady.

  • Kings' Viktor Arvidsson: Ready for season debut

    Arvidsson (back) has been activated off long-term injured reserve ahead of Thursday's game versus the Devils.

    Arvidsson, who racked up 26 goals and 59 points through 77 contests last year, has yet to play this campaign due to a back injury, but he's expected to slot into a prominent role for his season debut, skating on the second line and No. 2 power-play unit against New Jersey.

  • Kings' Viktor Arvidsson: Sheds non-contact jersey

    Arvidsson (back) is practicing in a regular jersey Thursday, Russell Morgan of HockeyRoyalty reports.

    Arvidsson has yet to play this season, as the 30-year-old underwent back surgery at the start of the 2023-24 campaign. Arvidsson was stellar last season, scoring 26 goals and adding 33 assists in 77 appearances. Look for Arvidsson to start as a middle-six forward, before making his way back to a top-six role, likely alongside Phillip Danault.

  • Kings' Viktor Arvidsson: Back on the ice

    Arvidsson (back) skated before practice Thursday in a non-contact jersey, according to Russell Morgan of HockeyRoyalty.

    The Kings are hoping that Arvidsson will be able to return by mid-February. The 30-year-old winger had a very good season in 2022-23, scoring 26 times while adding 33 assists in 77 games while playing as a top-six forward. He was expected to return to the same role this season, but he suffered a back injury in training camp and has yet to see any action in 2023-24. Upon his return, look for Arvidsson to eventually make his way back to the second line alongside Phillip Danault.

  • Kings' Viktor Arvidsson: Plans to resume skating shortly

    Arvidsson (back) plans to begin skating soon with an eye toward a potential return in mid-February, John Hoven of Mayor's Manor reports Saturday.

    Arvidsson recorded 26 goals and 59 points in 77 contests with LA during the 2022-23 campaign. He hasn't played yet this season due to the injury. When Arvidsson is ready to return, he'll likely serve in a middle-six capacity and could see time on the power play.

  • Kings' Viktor Arvidsson: Now considered month-to-month

    Arvidsson is considered month-to-month with a back injury, Austin Stanovich of The Hockey News reports.

    Per John Hoven of SiriusXM NHL Network Radio, Arvidsson will require surgery. Arvidsson's injury was initially classified as a lower-body issue. He is already on long-term injured reserve, which will keep him out until at least Nov. 8, but it appears the winger could be in for a long recovery. With Arvidsson out, Carl Grundstrom and Alex Laferriere have received middle-six opportunities.

  • Kings' Viktor Arvidsson: On LTIR

    Arvidsson (lower body) was put on the long-term injured reserve list Thursday.

    Arvidsson is eligible to return for the Kings' game against Vegas on Nov. 8, provided he's recovered from his lower-body injury by that date. He had 26 goals and 59 points in 77 contests last season. Arvidsson should serve in a top-six role once he's healthy.

  • Kings' Viktor Arvidsson: Set to miss additional time

    Arvidsson will not be back for "a while" according to head coach Todd McLellan, John Hoven of SiriusXM NHL Network Radio reports.

    Arvidsson was revealed to be questionable for Wednesday's season opener, which he ended up sitting out. Now it appears the winger could miss additional time going forward. Alex Laferriere got the first chance to replace Arvidsson in the lineup, and McLellan indicated he'd be happy to keep Laferriere up with the big club moving forward.

  • Kings' Viktor Arvidsson: Ruled out against Avs

    Arvidsson (lower body) will not be available to face Colorado on Wednesday, Zach Dooley of the Kings' official site reports.

    Arvidsson's spot in the lineup will go to Trevor Lewis while the team will play a man down due to the Kings' cap concerns. If Arvidsson still isn't ready to play versus Carolina on Saturday, LA should be able to make an emergency recall to add a 12th forward to the lineup. For Wednesday's contest, fantasy players should probably expect significant minutes for the Kings' top six.

  • Kings' Viktor Arvidsson: Iffy for opener

    Arvidsson (lower body) is considered questionable for Wednesday's season opener versus Colorado, Russell Morgan of Hockey Royalty reports.

    Arvidsson is considered day-to-day with his lower-body issue, so even if he's forced to miss Wednesday's contest, he likely won't be sidelined for long. More information regarding Arvidsson's status against the Avalanche could surface following Wednesday's morning skate.
