NewsTyler Toffoli has moved up to the top line, alongside Jeff Carter and Anze Kopitar.
ImpactNormally this would be outstanding news and a boost for his fantasy value but the Kings have scored only three times in their last six games so no one outside of Kopitar, who has all three markers, has fantasy value.

Some guys get to go to the end of the bench. There's not much I can do about it." Toffoli still has a lot of upside and it shouldn't be too long before he returns to Los Angeles.

ImpactToffoli is also mired in a 10 game pointless streak. He has nine goals and 17 points in 32 games and is a plus-14 this season. It was quite a streak by the rookie as far as plus/minus is concerned. He is worth looking at in deeper pools as he should break out shortly.

ImpactToffoli is neutral more often than not, but he has slowly climbed to plus-13 in 24 games. He's only averaging 12:60 minutes per contest, but he's often been paired up with Mike Richards. That pairing is one of the big reasons why Toffoli has nine goals and 17 points in 24 games in 2013-14.

| 11/15/2013 3:37 PM
NewsTyler Toffoli is making the most of his opportunity since being called up to the big leagues.
ImpactToffoli has posted seven points in five contests since joining the Kings on Nov. 1. The Kings have been bitten by the injury bug as of late which resulted in Toffoli being called up from the minors. During the last two weeks, he's appearing in 46 percent of the Kings' power-play opportunities while averaging three shots per contest. Toffoli essentially has been attached to the hip of Mike Richards as he's spent 81.4 percent of his shifts alongside the veteran and as long as he continues to receive that type of ice-time, his fantasy value will continue to skyrocket. At just 14 percent Yahoo! owned, he's a huge bargain bin pickup at the moment.

NewsTyler Toffoli skated on the Los Angeles' Kings top line in a scrimmage Saturday, taking the place of injured Dustin Brown alongside Anze Kopitar and Justin Williams.
ImpactThe slight injury Brown suffered during an on-ice drill Thursday is located in his hamstring and shouldn't have a major impact in preparations for the season, coach Darryl Sutter told LA Kings Insider.

NewsTyler Toffoli isn't a lock to make the Los Angeles Kings' roster out of training camp, according to coach Darryl Sutter.

He had 28 goals and 51 points in 58 AHL games last season and another five points in 10 contests with the Los Angeles Kings. He also held his own during the Kings playoffs run and is projected to be one of the NHL's top rookies in 2013-14.
Kings coach changes mind on Tyler Toffoli | 09/07/2013 11:03 AM
NewsAlthough Coach Darryl Sutter said last season he wanted right wing Tyler Toffoli to be prepared to play left wing this season in order to boost the team's scoring from that side, Sutter seems to have had a change of heart. He might now leave Toffoli alone rather than complicate the gifted scorer's thinking processes.
Los Angeles Times
ImpactHe might now leave Toffoli alone rather than complicate the gifted scorer's thinking processes. "I don't want to set Tyler back. That's my thinking," Sutter said Friday. "I'm not going to spend a lot of time. If he's way better on the right than he is on the left, that's the best chance. I'm really cautious about that one, because he's never played it and he's a good player. We'll see. He's done a lot with it this summer. Quite honestly I haven't put a whole lot into that."
Kings want to see what Toffoli can bring | 06/12/2013 1:38 PM
NewsTyler Toffoli may get a better chance to playing in Los Angeles' top-six forward group if he can adapt to playing left wing.
ImpactToffoli said the decision is up to the team and he'll play wherever he's needed. Coach Darryl Sutter wasn't prepared to commit to anything. "Plan is to get him stronger first. Then see if he's a good winger in the American Hockey League or a winger in the National Hockey League," Sutter said. "That will be the first step." Sutter wants to see if Toffoli can handle playing a full 82-game schedule, so look for 21-year-old to try to bulk up over the summer. Toffoli feels like he's up for the challenge.
Justin Williams lauds Tyler Toffoli's future | 06/04/2013 9:34 AM
NewsJustin Williams had nothing but praise for Tyler Toffoli after Sunday's Game 2.

ImpactToffoli jumped up to the Kings' second line with Mike Richards (upper body) out of the lineup and had a goal and an assist playing with Williams and Jeff Carter. "I think Tyler is going to be a phenomenal NHL player, for a long time," Williams said Sunday night. Toffoli has two goals and four points in nine games this postseason, which is nearly identical to his regular-season performance of two goals and five points in 10 games. If Richards is out for Tuesday's Game 3, it's highly possible Toffoli will find himself with Carter and Williams again.

I had goosebumps. It was a great feeling." Toffoli had 52 goals and 100 points in the OHL last season and the Kings are looking for him to be a top-six forward.
