Hagelin dished out an assist and was plus-2 in Monday's win over the Blues.

EDGE Analysis

Hagelin broke his nine-game pointless streak by notching his first point for Los Angeles with an assist on the Matt Luff's game-winning goal. He's averaging over 15 minutes per game and gets work on the penalty kill, and the 32-year-old will look to build on his success Wednesday versus the Avalanche.

Hagelin will make his Kings debut against the Predators on Saturday evening.

EDGE Analysis

Following morning skate, Hagelin told reporters what fans in Los Angeles can expect from him. "I'm a two-way player," he said. "I like to create offense using my speed, getting to pucks, and do my thing below the goal line... then, work hard all over the ice." The veteran winger also has two Stanley Cup wins with Pittsburgh (2016, 2017) on his NHL resume, but he could experience a bit of culture shock moving from a perennial contender to a Kings squad with the fewest amount of points (13) in the league standings.

Hagelin was acquired by the Kings in exchange for Tanner Pearson on Monday, Bob McKenzie of TSN reports.

EDGE Analysis

Both Hagelin and Pearson play a similar style of game, but have struggled to produce to start the year. The 30-year-old Hagelin will be a free agent after the season, which will potentially save the Kings $4 million in cap space heading into 2019-20. Where the Swede fits into the LA lineup remains to be seen, possibly a top-six role with Anze Kopitar and Jeff Carter.

Hagelin failed to register a point in Thursday's 9-1 victory over the Flames.

EDGE Analysis

Hagelin was one of just three Penguin skaters who failed to register a point in Thursday's blowout victory, despite playing on the second line alongside Evgeni Malkin and Phil Kessel. The speedy Hagelin has just two points through eight games and may find himself bumped from his top-six role if he can't start producing.

Hagelin has yet to tally a point in the opening two contests, despite playing on a line with Evgeni Malkin and Phil Kessel.

EDGE Analysis

Even with the slow start, if Hagelin continues to play with Malkin and Kessel, it's hard to imagine he won't reach the 30-point mark for the fifth time in his career. If, however, the winger gets bumped down to a bottom-six role, it could impact his point production to the point he becomes fantasy irrelevant.

After recording just 22 points last year, Hagelin surpassed the 30-point threshold this season for the fifth time in his career.

EDGE Analysis

Hagelin primary asset is his speed, which he uses to aggressively forecheck and create turnovers in the offensive zone. While this won't always show up on the scoresheet, it should allow the winger to consistently put up 30-plus points a year. The question facing the Swede is whether he will be back with the Penguins for the 2018-19 campaign. Hagelin will be under contract with a $4 million cap hit, but has often been the subject of trade rumors -- not to mention general manager Jim Rutherford, who is always open to making moves, was very clear about the team giving a spot to Daniel Sprong on the 23-man roster.

Hagelin logged 16:11 of ice time with two shots on goal in his return to the ice against the Capitals on Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

While Hagelin wasn't able to find the back of the net, his insertion into the lineup gives the Pens a significant uptick in speed and work rate. Fantasy owners shouldn't be surprised to see the winger start Game 5 on Evgeni Malkin's line, considering how well the two seemed to compliment each other during the regular season.

Hagelin (upper body) participated in line rushes during pregame warmups, indicating he'll return to the lineup for Thursday's Game 4 against the Capitals, Jason Mackey of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

EDGE Analysis

Hagelin will wear a protective shield during Thursday's contest to guard his face, so he's clearly still dealing with the upper-body injury that has held him out of the Penguins' last three games to some extent. The 29-year-old winger, who's notched two goals and three points in six games this postseason, will slot into a bottom-six role for Game 4, skating with Riley Sheahan and Phil Kessel on Pittsburgh's third line.

Hagelin (upper body) will be a game-time decision for Thursday's Game 4 clash with Washington, Sam Kasan of Pens Inside Scoop reports.

EDGE Analysis

It's certainly an encouraging sign that Hagelin continues to make strides in his recovery, but the fact that he was unable to take contact doesn't seem too positive. The winger's status should be more clear following the game-day skate, although coach Mike Sullivan will no doubt once again call the Swede a game-time call.

Hagelin (upper body) was missing from warmups and won't play Game 3 against the Capitals on Tuesday, Jason Mackey of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

EDGE Analysis

After notching two goals and a helper in the opening series against Philly, Hagelin will miss his third straight game in the conference semifinals. The Penguins dropped last game 4-1, and they could surely use a physical edge and aggressive forecheck -- two things Hagelin does well. His next chance to return to the lineup will be Thursday for Game 4.
