Kings will be without Anze Kopitar (upper body) against Jets

1 Comment

The Los Angeles Kings will look to snap their two-game losing streak when they take on the Winnipeg Jets on Sunday, but they’ll have to do so without captain Anze Kopitar.

Kopitar suffered an upper-body injury late in the third period of their last game against the Ottawa Senators and is considered day-to-day.

Look for Trevor Lewis to take Kopitar’s spot on the top line with Tanner Pearson and Teddy Purcell.

In other injury news, backup goalie Jeff Zatkoff is also on the shelf this afternoon.

Zatkoff was pitching a shutout in Friday’s game when he went down with a groin injury.

Jack Campbell, who was recalled from the AHL on an emergency basis, will serve as Peter Budaj‘s backup today.
