Gaborik Injures Foot in Team Europe's Win Over Sweden

Yesterday was a great day for Europe-Other-Than-Sweden-Finland-And-The-Czech-Republic. It was not a great day for Marian Gaborik, although he scored the first goal in Team Europe's semifinal victory over Sweden. The injury to Gaborik reportedly took place in the second period, which is interesting because (1) he might have scored AFTER taking that puck to the foot and (2) took regular shifts throughout the third period and overtime. Any optimism from those two facts should be tempered by the fact that he left the arena on crutches. More info once it's available. UPDATE: Once again, via Helene Elliott: Dean Lombardi has said that Gaborik is expected to miss eight weeks. So who wants to play with Kopitar?

Kings Go On Road Trip, Lewis Stays Back

lakingsinsider.com

As shared by Jon Rosen earlier this morning, Trevor Lewis did not travel with the Los Angeles Kings as they began their road trip. Lisa Dillman notes that the team intended to bring Lewis along, but "plans changed"; whether that means Lewis is more seriously hurt than originally thought or if they're just trying not to rush him back, we don't know. The use of the phrase "dinged up" has some speculating concussion, but we're gonna stick with "upper body injury" for now. Lewis may still play later in the road trip.

[UPDATED] Tanner Pearson Fractures Left Fibula

Really bad news from the Kings' 5-4 loss to Winnipeg on Saturday night. Tanner Pearson left Saturday's loss in the second period after going hard into the end boards, legs first. Pearson left the ice unable to put any weight on his left leg. Via Steph, you can see a GIF of the play; it's not graphic, but it looks painful. The Kings are now missing two of their top four goalscorers for the foreseeable future. UPDATE, SUNDAY, 12:45 PM: The exact injury is a broken lower left fibula.
