Top Blake Lizotte News

  • Kings' Blake Lizotte: Good to return Thursday

    Lizotte (lower body) is expected to be activated off the long-term injured reserve list and play Thursday versus Nashville, Zach Dooley of the Kings' official site reports.

    Lizotte, who was last in the lineup Jan. 15, has five goals and nine points in 34 outings in 2023-24. He's expected to play on the third line alongside Pierre-Luc Dubois and Quinton Byfield against the Predators.

  • Kings' Blake Lizotte: Shifts to LTIR

    Lizotte (lower body) was moved from injured reserve to long-term injured reserve Thursday.

    Lizotte has already missed 10 games and more than 24 days of action, so he'll be eligible to be activated whenever he's healthy enough to play. He's picked up only nine points through 34 contests this season, so fantasy managers shouldn't need to track Lizotte's status.

  • Kings' Blake Lizotte: On injured reserve

    Lizotte (lower body) was placed on injured reserve Thursday.

    Lizotte has five goals and nine points in 34 games this season. He was already projected to be out until after the All-Star break, per Dennis Bernstein of The Fourth Period on Tuesday, so putting him on IR doesn't alter his timetable. Jaret Anderson-Dolan might play more regularly during Lizotte's absence.

  • Kings' Blake Lizotte: Likely out through All-Star break

    Lizotte (lower body) will likely be out through the All-Star break, according to Dennis Bernstein of The Fourth Period.

    That would sideline Lizotte, who was injured Monday versus Carolina, until at least Feb. 10 against Edmonton. Per Russell Morgan of Hockey Royalty, Lizotte is scheduled to undergo an MRI on Wednesday, which could provide a better timeline for his return. The 26-year-old forward has nine points, 46 shots on goal and 26 hits in 34 contests this campaign.

  • Kings' Blake Lizotte: Unlikely to play Tuesday

    Lizotte (lower body) was deemed "doubtful" to face Dallas on Tuesday, coach Todd McLellan told Zach Dooley of the Kings' official site.

    Lizotte looks set to miss out versus the Stars, his second stint in the infirmary this season. Considering the 26-year-old center is stuck in an 11-game pointless streak and has scored just once in his last 18 games, few fantasy players figure to be impacted by his absence. Arthur Kaliyev figures to rejoin the lineup with Lizotte sidelined, though the recently recalled Samuel Fagemo could also be an option.

  • Kings' Blake Lizotte: Won't return Monday

    Lizotte (lower body) won't return to Monday's contest against Carolina.

    Lizotte logged just 2:49 of ice time prior to leaving the game. He entered Monday's action with nine points, 46 shots on goal and 26 hits in 33 outings this season.

  • Kings' Blake Lizotte: Capitalizes on turnover

    Lizotte scored a shorthanded goal on three shots in Wednesday's 2-1 loss to the Kraken.

    Lizotte got the puck on a turnover in the Kraken's zone and had plenty of net to hit. The 26-year-old snapped a goal drought dating back to Nov. 18 versus the Blues, which was a game in which he got hurt and missed the next six contests. Through 23 outings this season, Lizotte has five goals, four helpers, 30 shots on net and a plus-8 rating. He's earned three of his nine points while on the penalty kill.

  • Kings' Blake Lizotte: Earns helper Tuesday

    Lizotte logged a shorthanded assist in Tuesday's 4-1 win over the Sharks.

    Lizotte set up Trevor Lewis for an empty-net goal late in the third period. The helper ended a five-game point drought for Lizotte -- he hadn't gotten on the scoresheet since his return from an undisclosed injury that cost him six contests. The 26-year-old forward remains in a fourth-line role, where he's accumulated eight points (two shorthanded), 27 shots on net, 16 hits and a plus-7 rating over 22 appearances.

  • Kings' Blake Lizotte: Ready to play

    Lizotte (undisclosed) is set to return to the lineup Thursday versus the Canadiens, Zach Dooley of the Kings' official site reports.

    Lizotte missed six games with the injury. The 25-year-old will return to the fourth-line center role he's filled for much of the campaign. He had just two goals over his last six games before the injury, so fantasy managers shouldn't expect much offense out of him.

  • Kings' Blake Lizotte: Getting closer

    Lizotte (undisclosed) won't play Tuesday versus Columbus, according to Zach Dooley of the Kings' official site.

    Lizotte will miss his sixth straight contest, but he's inching his way toward a potential return. The Kings will see how he feels after Wednesday's practice before determining if he can play Thursday against the Canadiens. Lizotte has generated seven points, 20 shots on goal and 12 hits over 16 appearances this season.

    Lizotte (undisclosed) won't play Saturday versus the Canadiens, per Zach Dooley of the Kings' official site.

  • Kings' Blake Lizotte: Out Friday

    Lizotte (undisclosed) isn't expected to play Friday versus Anaheim, according to Zach Dooley of the Kings' official site.

  • Kings' Blake Lizotte: Sidelined with undisclosed issue

    Lizotte is dealing with an undisclosed injury and won't be available versus Arizona on Monday, Zach Dooley of the Kings' official site reports.

    Head coach Todd McLellan isn't sure if Lizotte is closer to the day-to-day or 7-10 day range in terms of his recovery, but either way, the 25-year-old forward isn't expected to be sidelined long term. Lizotte has picked up four goals and seven points through 16 contests this campaign. It's expected Jaret Anderson-Dolan will slot into the lineup versus the Coyotes on Monday, likely taking over Lizotte's spot as the fourth-line center.

  • Kings' Blake Lizotte: Nets game-winning goal Saturday

    Lizotte scored a goal on two shots in Saturday's 5-1 win over the Blues.

    Lizotte snapped a four-game point drought with the tally, which came 19 seconds after Quinton Byfield opened the scoring on the power play. Lizotte's goal ended up being the game-winner. The 25-year-old is up to four markers, three helpers, 20 shots on net, 12 hits and a plus-7 rating through 16 outings. He has carved out some solid production for a fourth-liner.

  • Kings' Blake Lizotte: Garners helper in shootout loss

    Lizotte recorded an assist in Saturday's 4-3 shootout loss to the Golden Knights.

    Lizotte has gotten on the scoresheet in every other game this season. The 25-year-old delivered a secondary helper on Trevor Lewis' second-period tally Saturday. Lizotte has two goals, three assists, seven shots on net, five hits and a plus-5 rating through eight contests. He sees virtually no power-play time and works in a fourth-line role at even strength, but there's enough offense to go around on a Kings team that is getting production from virtually every spot in the lineup.

  • Kings' Blake Lizotte: Goal, assist in win

    Lizotte scored a goal, dished an assist, logged two hits and went plus-2 in Tuesday's 6-3 win over the Coyotes.

    Lizotte's second-period tally held as the game-winner. He also set up a Trevor Lewis goal in the first. While he's primarily been the fourth-line center this season, Lizotte has two goals, two assists, five shots on net and a plus-4 rating through six contests. His 12:16 of ice time Tuesday was a season-high, so it may be difficult for him to be a steady contributor on offense without an increased role.

  • Kings' Blake Lizotte: Nabs assist Saturday

    Lizotte produced an assist and two shots on goal in Saturday's 6-5 shootout loss to the Hurricanes.

    Lizotte helped out on a Vladislav Gavrikov goal in the third period. The helper was Lizotte's first point in two games this season, and he's added three shots on net. He's seeing fourth-line usage so far, but with the Kings opening the season with a pair of losses, it's possible he could be bumped up into a middle-six role at some point in the near future. Lizotte had 34 points and averaged 12:57 of ice time per game over 81 outings in 2022-23.

  • Kings' Blake Lizotte: Set to return

    Lizotte (lower body) is expected to play in Saturday's Game 6 versus the Oilers, Zach Dooley of the Kings' official site reports.

    Lizotte missed the last three games with the injury. He'll return to a fourth-line role, centering Carl Grundstrom and Rasmus Kupari in a must-win game for the Kings. Lizotte had three shots on goal and four hits without recording a point in the first two contests of the playoffs.

  • Kings' Blake Lizotte: Practicing Thursday

    Lizotte (lower body) is practicing in a regular jersey Thursday, Dennis Bernstein of The Fourth Period reports.

    Lizotte was injured in Game 2 and has missed the last three games. Gabriel Vilardi has played as the third line center and has two goals and an assist since Lizotte's injury. Consider Lizotte a game-time decision in Game 6 on Saturday.
