Marian Gaborik To Start On Kings’ Top Line Tonight Vs. Winnipeg

Gaborik

Marian Gaborik, acquired from Columbus at yesterday’s trade deadline, skated on L.A.’s No. 1 unit alongside Anze Kopitar and Justin Williams, according to LA Kings Insider.

Gaborik, 32, was acquired in the hopes of sparking a lifeless L.A. offense.

The Kings sit 27th in the NHL in goals per game (2.32) and haven’t gotten much scoring from their wingers this season, so the hope is that Gaborik can find some of the form that saw him score 41 with the Rangers during the 2011-12 campaign.
