Recommendation: Kopitar echoed the sentiments of his general manager, adding "I want to play the rest of the season. I don't want to force it now. I'd rather make it 100% now and play for the rest of the season and be ready for the playoffs as opposed to forcing it now and having a major setback a little later on." Kopitar continues to make steady progress but expect the Kings to make sure he's ready before inserting him back into the lineup.
