Marian Gaborik RW LA 1 Month

Gaborik (undisclosed) isn't expected to resume skating until early next week, Jon Rosen of LAKingsInsider.com reports.

Gaborik hasn't played since Oct. 12 while dealing with the mystery injury, and it sounds like at the very least, the forward could miss an additional handful of games. While getting on the ice would mark a positive step for Gaborik, coach Darryl Sutter wasn't willing to speculate if the forward would be available for the Kings' five-game road trip that runs from Oct. 28 to Nov. 4. Fantasy owners likely drafted Gaborik with the knowledge that his shaky health would make him a huge risk, but it wasn't believed that he'd miss this much action so early in the campaign.

Gaborik attempted two shots but was otherwise absent on the score sheet in Wednesday's shutout loss to the Sharks.

Since he's far from a physical payer on defense and doesn't normally play huge minutes, Gaborik's fantasy value lies almost exclusively in his ability to collect points. It makes Gaborik somewhat of a liability in leagues that count specialty categories, but if he can score at close to point-per-game clip this season, he'll likely be forgiven by his fantasy owners.

Marian Gaborik's new contract is reportedly worth about $34.3 million over seven years.

In other words, Gaborik will come with a $4.9 million annual cap hit. Although the length of his contract has to be concerning from the Kings' perspective, they did a good job keeping his cap hit down. Gaborik could have likely gotten a meaningfully higher annual salary on the open market, but he likely settle for less for a longer contract and the knowledge that he'll be playing for a competitive squad.
