Kings Sign Gaborik To Seven-Year Deal

News: Marian Gaborik has agreed to a seven-year deal -- reportedly with an average annual value of $4.9 million -- to stay with the Kings, TSN.ca reports.
Analysis: Marian Gaborik, who the Kings acquired from the Blue Jackets at the NHL trade deadline, recorded 30 points in 41 regular season games split between Columbus and Los Angeles in 2013-14, but he really turned things up a notch during the Kings' Stanley Cup run, racking up a league-high 14 postseason goals (and 22 points) in 26 games. Re-signing the winger was obviously a priority for the Kings and it took a lengthy commitment to retain the 32-year-old, who missed 17 games this past season with a sprained knee and 22 games with a broken collarbone.

Gaborik Bolsters Kings' Cup Win

News: Marian Gaborik scored his playoff-leading 14th goal in Friday's Cup-clinching Game 5 victory over the Rangers, tying up the game on a third-period power play.
Analysis: Following a deadline day deal to Los Angeles, Marian Gaborik has made Kings GM Dean Lombardi look rather prescient as the utterly skilled Slovakian winger led the playoffs in goals with 14. Whether Gaborik remains in Los Angeles will be discussed in the coming weeks, but he has developed outstanding chemistry with center Anze Kopitar and complements the grit and physicality of the Kings forwards nicely with his skill.

News: Marian Gaborik scored his 12th goal of the postseason in Sunday's Game 7 win over the Blackhawks.

Kings' Gaborik Stays Hot

News: Marian Gaborik collected a goal and an assist in Wednesday's Game 5 loss to the Blackhawks.
Analysis: Marian Gaborik still leads the league with 11 playoff goals, and ranks third overall with 18 points. He and Anze Kopitar have given the Hawks trouble all series, and should wreak havoc again in Game 6 at home where Darryl Sutter can pick who they match up against.

Goals Rolling In For LA's Gaborik

News: Marian Gaborik produced a goal and an assist in Friday's Game 7 win over Anaheim in the Pacific Division finals, giving him six points in the last five games.
Analysis: Marian Gaborik is making the Los Angeles front office look like prescient geniuses with their acquisition of the utterly talented winger at the trade deadline. The mercurial forward has 15 points through 14 games and remains one of the team's biggest scoring threats.

Kings' Gaborik Scores Twice

News: Marian Gaborik notched two goals, including a power-play tally, on seven shots on net in Monday's Game 6 loss to the Ducks.
Analysis: Marian Gaborik has a league leading eight goals in this postseason, but the Kings are now one game away from elimination.

Kings' Gaborik Lights The Lamp

News: Marian Gaborik scored a goal against the Ducks in Monday's Game 2 win for the Kings.
Analysis: That's four points for Marian Gaborik in the two games in this series, and he now has six goals in nine games this postseason, which leads the league.

Gaborik King For Night, Two Goals Including Winner

News: Marian Gaborik scored the game-tying goal and game-winning goal in overtime Saturday to lift the Kings to a 3-2 victory over the Ducks. He also had an assist.
Analysis: All eight of Gabby's points this postseason have come in the last six games. And he has five goals in that span. He's fitting it quite well on the Kings and will be a key cog in their success in the playoffs.

Gaborik Scores Two In Game 4

News: Marian Gaborik's two goals Thursday helped the Kings avoid a four-game sweep with a 6-3 victory over San Jose.
Analysis: After going scoreless in the two road games to open the series, Gabby's come alive with three goals in the Kings' two home draws. The Kings have a big hole to climb out of, so they'll need him to keep it going as the series heads back to San Jose for Game 5.

Gaborik's Three Points Carry Kings

News: Marian Gaborik scored a pair of goals and assisted on Anze Kopitar's tally in Thursday's 3-0 win over Edmonton.
Analysis: The whole Los Angeles offense ran through Marian Gaborik on this night, giving him points in three straight and eight of his last nine. Gabby's been a new man as a King, showing great chemistry with star center Anze Kopitar, and they have to be hoping to carry that into the playoffs.

Gaborik Sees Point Streak End In Kings' Loss

News: Marian Gaborik saw his five-game point streak come to an end Thursday against the Sharks.
Analysis: Marian Gaborik had racked up six points (one goal, five assists) in his previous five games, including two points on the power play. He's playing well alongside Anze Kopitar, and you can expect that trend to continue in the final week of the season.

Kings' Gaborik Logs Pair Of Assists Saturday

News: Marian Gaborik assisted on both of Anze Kopitar's goals in Saturday's 4-2 triumph over the Jets.
Analysis: Don't look now, but the oft-injured Slovakian sniper appears to have finally hit his stride with his new team. Marian Gaborik now has four points in the last three games and looks as dynamic as ever playing with the offensively-gifted Kopitar. No matter what, his season will regarded largely as a disaster since injuries have limited him to 22 points in 34 games, but it's looking like Gabby is ready to partially redeem himself for fantasy owners that hung onto him. Make sure he's active.

Gaborik Scores In Kings' Win

News: Marian Gaborik netted his third goal in his last seven games in Tuesday's win over Washington.
Analysis: Marian Gaborik still has just five points in ten games since joining the Kings but is getting more looks at the net lately.

Gaborik Notches First Goal, Assist With Kings

News: Marian Gaborik picked up his first points since joining the Kings in Thursday's loss to Toronto, opening the scoring with an early-first-period goal and adding a power-play assist.
Analysis: Gabby had failed to make it onto the scoresheet in his first three games with the Kings, so it's nice to see him break the ice. He's going to continue seeing major minutes -- power-play time included -- and offers solid upside down the stretch, though he's surely owned in most competitive formats.

Kings Acquire Gaborik From Blue Jackets

News: Marian Gaborik was traded to the Kings on Wednesday in exchange for forward Matt Frattin and two draft picks, TSN.ca reports.
Analysis: Marian Gaborik will join his third team in less than a calendar year as the Kings look to beef up their offense. The 32-year-old is an offense-first player who wouldn't seem to fit the two-way ethic coach Darryl Sutter demands from his players, but he'll give a needed jolt to an attack that has mostly struggled to find the net the past two months. Gaborik has proven himself healthy after returning from a collarbone injury Feb. 27, logging a goal and an assist in his four games out of the Olympic break.

Jackets' Gaborik Set For Fourth-Line Duty Thursday

News: Marian Gaborik (collarbone) will play on the fourth line in his return to the ice Thursday against the Devils, Aaron Portzline of the Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: With Marian Gaborik suiting up for the first time since Dec. 21, coach Todd Richards will limit his ice time in his return to action. Richards noted that Gaborik will gradually have the opportunity to climb into a top-six role if his play dictates it, but it may take a few games for the forward to get back up to full speed. Fantasy owners who still have Gaborik stashed on IR may want to keep him there a little while longer until he starts seeing increased minutes.

Blue Jackets' Gaborik Activated From IR

News: Marian Gaborik (collarbone) was activated from injured reserve Wednesday.
Analysis: After returning to practice last week following the Olympic break, Marian Gaborik indicated he would be available for the Jackets' first game of the second half against the Devils on Thursday, and this transaction would seem to confirm as much. Horrible luck with injuries have limited Gaborik to just 18 games this season, and the speedy winger has mostly underachieved in those contests with five goals and seven assists. At 32 years old, Gaborik's numbers may only fall further over the seasons to come.

Blue Jackets' Gaborik Expected To Return Thursday

News: Marian Gaborik (collarbone) will be activated before Thursday's game against New Jersey, Aaron Portzline of the Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: Injuries have limited Marian Gaborik to just 18 games this season, but his return should provide a nice boost for the Blue Jackets up front as they ponder other moves ahead of the upcoming trade deadline.

Jackets' Gaborik Skating In Full

News: Marian Gaborik (collarbone) has been cleared for contact and was skating at full strength during Wednesday's practice, Aaron Portzline of the Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: Marian Gaborik narrowly missed out on suiting up for Slovakia in the Olympics, so it stands to reason that he's probably getting close to full health after taking the last two weeks to rest up. The Blue Jackets will monitor him carefully during upcoming practices to avoid any setbacks, but the expectation is that he'll be available when the team resumes play after the break.

Jackets' Gaborik Ruled Out For Olympics

News: Marian Gaborik (collarbone) will not play for Slovakia in the upcoming Winter Olympics after failing to receive medical clearance Thursday.
Analysis: Marian Gaborik's agent said earlier in the week that is was looking highly doubtful that the forward would be available for the Sochi games, and Thursday's news merely confirms as much. On a more positive note, the Blue Jackets are still hopeful that he'll be fully recovered and ready to go shortly after the break. At that point, he will be a week past the initial six-to-eight week timetable carved out for him.

Jackets' Gaborik Returns To Practice

News: Marian Gaborik (broken collarbone) was back on the ice during Monday's practice wearing a red no-contact jersey, the Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: The Blue Jackets' medical staff will take a look at his progress at the end of the team's current road trip to determine whether or not he can play for the Slovakian team at the Olympics. Whether he's cleared or not, don't expect to see him back in a Jackets uniform until after the break.

Jackets' Gaborik 'Long Shot' For Sochi

News: Marian Gaborik's (collarbone) agent said his client is a "long shot" to play for Slovakia during the Winter Olympics, Aaron Portzline of the Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: Marian Gaborik had already been considered doubtful to play before the break in the NHL schedule, and it now looks like he won't be ready to go for the Olympics at all, barring tremendous strides in his recovery over the next week. He was wearing a non-contact jersey and was a light participant in Monday's gameday skate.

Blue Jackets' Gaborik Out Until Olympics

News: Marian Gaborik (broken collarbone) will not return before the Olympics and may not be able to play for Slovakia in Sochi, NHL.com reports.
Analysis: Marian Gaborik is five weeks into a 6-8 week timetable, so he could conceivably play for Slovakia. He seems to be making progress, as he reportedly took the ice for the Blue Jackets' morning skate Saturday and was able to do some light shooting. From a fantasy owner's perspective, it's probably best if Gaborik doesn't participate in the Olympics, but his presence (or lack thereof) is crucial for a Slovakian team that isn't exactly littered with NHL talent.

Blue Jackets' Gaborik Does Light Shooting Saturday

News: Marian Gaborik (collarbone) was on the ice for the team's morning skate Saturday and did some light shooting, Shawn Mitchell of the Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: Marian Gaborik is still on the 6-8 week timetable originally given back in late December, but the fact that he's doing some light shooting work and is traveling with the team is a good sign. He has still not been cleared for contact drills though. He is scheduled to visit the doctor in a few days for a re-evaluation.

Jackets' Gaborik Skates Lightly Thursday

News: Marian Gaborik (collarbone) skated lightly on his own Thursday, Shawn Mitchell of the Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: It was Marian Gaborik's first time on the ice since breaking his collarbone, but fantasy owners shouldn't make too much of it since it was a solo session and he wasn't wearing his full equipment. He's scheduled to visit a doctor within a few days and could receive clearance for more activities at that time.
