Muzzin (upper-body) is doubtful for the Kings’ season opener.
Muzzin has been dealing with an upper-body injury throughout the preseason but returned to practice on Monday. Despite returning to the team session, coach Darryl Sutter called Muzzin “doubtful” for Wednesday’s game against the Sharks.
Muzzin (upper-body) has been cleared to play on Thursday.
This is great news for the Kings' and perfect timing following the indefinite suspension of Slava Voynov. Muzzin is the 'cross darling' and will be back on the top-pair with Drew Doughty and should be a rock solid fantasy defenseman this season.
Muzzin (upper-body) will meet with doctors today, optimistic about playing on Thursday.
Muzzin has yet to play this season, but is nearing a return. He said he will not rush back just because of Slava Voynov's arrest, but he still feels like he is ready to make his season debut on Thursday.
Muzzin hasn’t played since suffering an injury in the preseason game against the Avalanche in Colorado Springs on October 2. Though he has been practicing with the team, he hasn’t been cleared to return to game action. Muzzin is expected to get an X-ray on October 23rd, which is three weeks from the day he was injured, a decision on his status should be made after that.
The Kings have signed Jake Muzzin to a five-year deal worth $20 million.
The Kings will pay Muzzin an average of $4 million per year, which is a very reasonable cap-hit for your number-2 defenseman. Muzzin has not played yet this season but is coming off of a 24-point (5G / 19A) year and is just 25-years-old. He has an absolute cannon from the point and that cannon will be on the Kings blueline for five more years.
Muzzin (undisclosed) is doubtful for Tuesday's game.
Muzzin has yet to be medically cleared to play on Tuesday and he expressed doubt over his availability for tomorrow. It sounds like the most likely scenario is for Muzzin to return this weekend when the Kings take on the Stars on Saturday.
Muzzin (undisclosed) says he will miss a few more games.
Muzzin was on the ice for Kings practice this afternoon, but apparently the injury won't stop him from skating and he may even take warmups, but he will miss a couple more games. Muzzin's fill-in Brayden McNabb was a minus-1 with no shots in 23:27 TOI.
Muzzin (undisclosed) is questionable for tonight's season opener vs. San Jose.
There was no report of an injury to Muzzin until this morning. If he plays he will line up in his usual spot with Drew Doughty, but if he is unable to play, Doughty will play with Brayden McNabb. With only a few games tonight you won't get burned by having him in your lineup in daily leagues.
Kings D pairs: Regehr-Doughty, Scuderi-Voynov, Muzzin-Greene.
Muzzin who was scratched in Game 2 will return to the blueline for Game 3. He has three assists and is a minus-2 in 14 games this post-season. He is averaging the fifth most time on ice of all the Kings defenseman with 15:43 per game.
