Los Angeles Teams

In Tobias Rieder, the Los Angeles Kings are getting a speedy winger having a curiously underwhelming season, despite being in a contract year and headed to restricted free agency. His 5-on-5 point production (0.259 per game), possession metrics and high-danger chances are all down. As Arizona Coyotes coach Rick Tocchet said earlier this month, via ArizonaSports.com: "He's got to get inside the dots. He just hasn't really done much." That said, the Kings didn't give up much here in goalie Darcy Kuemper, getting Rieder and goalie Scott Wedgewood in return; with Arizona retaining 15 percent of his contract, it's worth the chance that Rieder rebounds on a clear playoff contender.

Dave Roberts on the pressure of repeating the success of 2017 and expectations of managing in Los Angeles: "It comes with the job. In our market to be under the microscope and have high expectations — that's the way it should be. It holds everyone accountable to understand each day is important."
