Anze Kopitar Shining For Kings Amid Los Angeles’ Red-Hot Start

Anze Kopitar is playing like a captain should.

The Los Angeles Kings center is off to a strong start to the season, with seven goals and five assists through the first 10 games of the 2017-18 campaign.

Kopitar’s play has helped vault the Kings to an 8-1-1 record entering Saturday’s matchup against the Boston Bruins at TD Garden. Additionally, L.A. currently is tied for second in the NHL in points with 17.
