LA Kings final roster, scratches and line combos for home opener

Final rosters were due to the NHL this afternoon. It has now been confirmed, Anze Kopitar and Willie Mitchell will start the year as injured non-roster players..

That leaves the Kings initial 23-man roster as follows:

Forwards – Dustin Brown, Jeff Carter, Kyle Clifford, Colin Fraser, Simon Gagne. Dwight King, Trevor Lewis, Jordan Nolan, Dustin Penner, Mike Richards, Brad Richardson, Anthony Stewart, Jarret Stoll, Justin Williams

Defensemen – Drew Doughty, Davis Drewiske, Matt Greene, Alec Martinez, Jake Muzzin, Rob Scuderi and Slava Voynov

Goaltenders – Jonathan Quick and Jonathan Bernier

Injured – Kopitar and Mitchell (Just to clarify the situation – they are not going on injured reserve. So, as injured non-roster players, they are eligible to play when ready. However, the team would need to remove one player from the 23-man roster for each player returning to the line-up.)

Barring a last minute change by coach Darryl Sutter, these are the expected line combos:

Penner-Carter-Williams

Gagne-Richards-Brown

King-Stoll-Lewis

Clifford-Fraser-Nolan

Scuderi-Doughty

Martinez-Voynov

Drewiske-Greene

Healthy Scratches: Muzzin, Richardson, Stewart

We’ll have more with Mitchell up on the site later tonight.  He gave a full interview after skating and testing his knee earlier today.
