Though forward Andreas Athanasiou has finally come off the NHL’s COVID-19 protocols, he will miss his ninth straight game tonight as the Los Angeles Kings take on the Arizona Coyotes. They’ll also be without the services of forward Jaret Anderson-Dolan, who sustained a lower body injury in Thursday’s 3-2 shootout win over the Coyotes.
On the Coyotes’ side, forward Drake Caggiula is expected to return after missing five straight games due to a lower body injury. After backing up Darcy Kuemper on Thursday, goaltender Antti Raanta is considered day-to-day and will not be in the lineup.
