Young Forward To Return To Los Angeles Kings Lineup For Game Two

The Los Angeles Kings picked up a crucial come from behind victory in Game One of their first round series against the Edmonton Oilers, and in the hours before Game Two, they've got some fantastic injury news.

It has now been revealed that young forward Gabriel Vilardi will be in the lineup for Game Two, and after the team struggled to score early in the first matchup, this will be a much needed shot in the arm for the Kings offence as they look to go 2-0 up in the series. 

In 2022/23, Vilardi played in 63 games, racking up 23 goals and 18 assists for a total of 41 points, and while the 23-year old hasn't blossomed into the star many expected, he is steadily improving, and will be a good boost for the Kings in the playoffs.
