Kings' Clifford Set To Play Thursday

News: Kyle Clifford (illness) is set to play Thursday against the Senators, Jon Rosen of LA Kings Insider reports.
Analysis: Kyle Clifford resumed practicing Wednesday and departed with the rest of the team after Thursday's morning skate while Jordan Nolan remained on the ice for extra work, signaling that Clifford will draw back into the lineup. He's expected to skate at left wing on the Kings' fourth line, joining Dwight King and Mike Richards.

Kings' Clifford Likely Out Tuesday

News: Kyle Clifford (flu) appears unlikely to play Tuesday against the Sabres, Jon Rosen of LA Kings Insider reports.
Analysis: Kyle Clifford looks to be just about recovered from the illness, but was skating as an extra at the Kings' morning skate, a sign he's not quite ready to go. Marian Gaborik (upper body) will return from a multi-game absence to take Clifford's spot in the lineup.

Kings' Clifford Has The Flu

News: Kings' head coach Darryl Sutter announced Sunday that Kyle Clifford has been dealing with the flu, Lisa Dillman of the LA Times reports.
Analysis: The Kings don't play until Tuesday so Kyle Clifford's status for that game is still uncertain at this point. The 23-year-old winger has one goal and five assists through 27 games played this season.

Kings' Clifford Picks Up Two Points

News: Kyle Clifford assisted on two scores in Saturday's loss to the Stars.
Analysis: The 23-year-old still has only five points in 21 games this season, making it tough to get excited about Saturday's showing. He's worth a look in specialty formats only for those fishing for hits and PIM help.

Kings' Clifford Finds First Twine Of Season

News: Kyle Clifford scored his first goal of the year Tuesday, wrapping up the scoring with a tip-in of a Trevor Lewis shot in a 3-1 win over Dallas.
Analysis: Kyle Clifford's calling card is his toughness, not his scoring ability, but he actually has some underrated skills around the net. Still, he sees few opportunities in his fourth-line role.

Kings' Clifford Recovering From Wrist Surgery

News: Kyle Clifford underwent successful surgery after the Stanley Cup Finals to repair a small fracture in one of his wrists, LA Kings Insider reports.
Analysis: Kyle Clifford reportedly underwent the procedure June 24 and was given a six-to-eight week recovery timetable, which should put him on track to return in time for training camp. He totaled eight points in 24 playoff games, and is slated to serve in a bottom-six capacity during the upcoming campaign.

Kings' Clifford Has Two Points In Game 1

News: Kyle Clifford opened the scoring for the Kings with his first goal of the playoffs -- and his first postseason goal since 2011 -- then added an assist on Drew Doughty's game-tying tally in Wednesday's Game 1 win over the Rangers.
Analysis: Rare though it may be, the goal came on a beautiful sharp-angle shot. Kyle Clifford collected a total of just three points in the Kings' first three playoff series, so this is quite the explosion for him, and it came in his typically limited fourth-line role -- in fact, he played the fewest minutes of any Kings skater.

Clifford On Kings' Scoresheet

News: Kyle Clifford assisted on two of the Kings' six goals in Friday's series-clinching win over Anaheim, giving him three points in the postseason.
Analysis: Kyle Clifford has been in and out of the lineup the last series and remains one of the team's more important checking forwards. Any offense from him can be considered a bonus for Clifford, who has more value to the Kings than to most playoff pools.

Kings' Clifford Giving Way To Nolan For Game 5

News: Kyle Clifford has been replaced by Jordan Nolan in the Kings' lineup for Monday's Game 5 against the Ducks, TSN's Mark Masters reports.
Analysis: Kyle Clifford played in 10 of the Kings' first 11 playoff games, tallying one point while typically logging about 10 minutes of ice time per game.

No Points Since December For Kings' Clifford

News: Kyle Clifford hasn't collected a point for the Kings since Dec. 11 against the Maple Leafs.
Analysis: That's a span of 25 games. Kyle Clifford is nobody's idea of a dependable scorer, but he did manage to provide five points in his first 24 games. He's at least staying physical on the defensive end throughout the season, racking up 137 hits and 63 penalty minutes.

Kings' Clifford Grabs Two Helpers

News: Kyle Clifford picked up his first two assists of the season in Tuesday's win over the Canadiens.
Analysis: He hadn't found the score sheet since scoring a goal Nov. 25. Kyle Clifford's better known for his contributions in PIM and hits; any points he throws onto the pile are just gravy.

Kings' Clifford Returns From Head Injury

News: Kyle Clifford (head) logged 11:36 of ice time in his return to the lineup Saturday.

News: Kyle Clifford (head) returned to practice Friday morning as a full participant, Jon Rosen of LAKingsInsider.com reports.
Analysis: Though Kyle Clifford remains on injured reserve, coach Darryl Sutter reiterated Clifford was "day-to-day" with an upper-body injury, which is suspected to be a concussion. While it appears Clifford could be close to returning, he'll likely be evaluated for a few more practices before he's activated from IR.

Kings' Clifford Returns To Ice For Morning Skate

News: Kyle Clifford (head) was on the ice near the end of Tuesday's morning skate, Jon Rosen of LA Kings Insider reports.
Analysis: Though he won't suit up Tuesday against the Lightning, Kyle Clifford has now been on the ice for two straight days and could be primed for a return sooner or later. The Kings will probably wait and see how he looks in a full-contact practice or two before considering activating him from IR.

Kings' Clifford Sidelined With Head Injury

News: Kyle Clifford (head) isn't expected to accompany the team on its upcoming four-game road trip, the Los Angeles Times reports.

Clifford Nets First Goal For Kings

News: Kyle Clifford scored his first goal of the season in a 5-2 win over Dallas on Saturday.
Analysis: Kyle Clifford hadn't registered a point so far this season and hadn't been collecting any PIMs lately either despite being a regular fixture in the Kings' lineup this season.

Kings' Clifford Agrees To Two-Year Extension

News: Kyle Clifford agreed to a two-year contract with the Kings on Friday.
Analysis: His offensive numbers aren't eye-popping (40 points in 205 career games), but Kyle Clifford provides toughness along the wing for Los Angeles. Still just 22 years old, Clifford will look to take another step forward next season after posting a career-best plus-1 rating in 48 games last year.

News: Kyle Clifford (undisclosed) is not playing in Thursday's Game 2 against the Sharks, LAKingsInsider.com reports.
