Muzzin (undisclosed) is expected to rejoin the lineup Thursday against the Penguins, Jon Rosen of LA Kings Insider reports.

EDGE Analysis

Muzzin's absence dates back to Jan. 4 against the Flames, after which he was later deemed "a little banged up" with an injury that has kept him out since. The blueliner appears to be on the cusp of a return after missing three games over a two-week span. Upon his return, he should retake his role on the man advantage and will attempt to continue his successful start tot he campaign, owning 23 points (three goals, 20 assists) and a plus-9 rating through 41 games played this season.

EDGE Analysis

Muzzin remains on injured reserve and will miss his third straight outing due to his undisclosed ailment. Christian Folin will continue to deputize in the 28-year-old's stead, although Derek Forbort could also see an uptick in ice time.

Muzzin was back on the ice at the end of morning skate Saturday, but Kings coach John Stevens has deemed the two-way defenseman "doubtful" for Saturday's home game against the Ducks, Jon Rosen of Fox Sports West reports.

EDGE Analysis

Muzzin remains on injured reserve and there's nothing to suggest that he'll have that designation lifted in time to play Saturday. Besides, with a 10:30 p.m. ET start time, most daily fantasy lineups will lock before then. We implore you to line up alternatives in the likely event that Muzzin sits out for a second consecutive game. Oscar Fantenberg and Christian Folin should see an uptick in minutes until the former is ready to return.

Muzzin was placed on injured reserve Saturday, Jon Rosen of LA Kings Insider reports.

EDGE Analysis

Muzzin was considered a game-time call for Saturday's contest and he's believed to be dealing with a minor issue. The team thus placed him on IR with a bye week ahead for the club, allowing the blueliner to rejoin the action for Los Angeles' next contest Jan. 13 against the Ducks. Christian Folin (lower body) was activated off injured reserve Saturday and should replace him in the lineup.

Muzzin generated a power-play assist and was whistled for a minor penalty in Tuesday night's 5-0 road win over the Oilers.

EDGE Analysis

The Kings flat out embarrassed the Oilers at Rogers Place, and Muzzin wasn't about to be excluded from the fun. Amazingly, the mobile defenseman is just six points shy of matching his point total of 28 from last season, when he covered the entire schedule. It gets better: Muzzin's collected 99 hits and 80 blocked shots for those of you involved in fantasy leagues that count defensive values.

Muzzin scored his third goal of the season and added a helper in 25:12 of ice time Tuesday against Minnesota.

EDGE Analysis

Muzzin's terrific campaign continues, as the workhorse now has 18 points in 29 games on the season. He isn't as valuable as his partner Drew Doughty, but Muzzin logs monstrous minutes and plays on the power play, making him a steady source of offensive production. The heavy hit totals and plus-8 rating are a nice bonus, so make sure you get the two-way stud in your lineup.

Muzzin recorded two assists and a plus-2 rating through 23:07 of ice time (3:19 with the man advantage) during Friday's 4-1 win over St. Louis.

EDGE Analysis

After recording two goals and six assists over the first seven games of the campaign, Muzzin had just six helpers through the next 19 outings entering Friday, so this was a welcomed multi-point showing for fantasy owners. Muzzin's go-to role and cross-category profile make him a solid asset in the majority of settings. However, he still owns the upside to be a more consistent scorer and go-to contributor.

Muzzin garnered an assist in Tuesday's 4-1 victory over the Red Wings.

EDGE Analysis

Unfortunately for Muzzin, he was still unable to find the back of the net, extending his goalless streak to 18 games. With a half dozen helpers over that stretch, the blueliner is finding ways to contribute offensively while averaging over 22 minutes of ice time. Considering the 28-year-old has reached the 10-goal threshold just once in his career, fantasy owners should probably temper any expectations they had of him becoming a consistent goal scorer.

Muzzin scored his second goal of the season and added two assists in Saturday's win over Columbus.

EDGE Analysis

Muzzin has been rolling this season, sporting a five-game point streak and playing a key role with the man advantage. After a down year offensively in 2016-17, Muzzin is setting himself up for a terrific bounce-back campaign this time around. Muzzin has hit the 40-point barrier twice in his career, so with the Kings remaining unbeaten in regulation this season, he's a very solid fantasy play right now.
