Kevin Fiala is only four months into his first season with the Kings, but the former Wild forward feels like he's been there for years. Since his first game against the Wild on Oct. 15, a 7-6 win for the Kings that included a goal and two assists for Fiala, the 26-year-old has become even more of a catalyst for Los Angeles offense. "His skill set's as good as anybody's," Los Angeles coach Todd McLellan said. "That's what I want to improve, especially this season after last season," said Fiala, who signed a seven-year, $55.125 million contract with the Kings after the trade. Injury updateMarcus Foligno skated Monday and Tuesday, but the Wild winger remained out against Los Angeles.
