Kings in “wait and see” mode re: personnel; line rushes

The Los Angeles Kings are playing “wait-and-see” in regards to their personnel options in the wake of Anze Kopitar’s injury, hockey operations told LA Kings Insider.

Tyler Toffoli, on whether he is playing best stretch of hockey as a professional: I felt, obviously there were stretches when I was in Manchester, but the beginning of this year feels really good.
