Kings’ Blake Lizotte Has Been a Force Versus Oilers

Blake Lizotte has gone from being undrafted to becoming a crucial piece of the Los Angeles Kings’ playoff lineup. The 24-year-old played college hockey with St. Cloud State before being signed as a free agent by LA in 2019. Coming in at just 5-foot-9, 170 pounds, it’s easy to understand why he may have been overlooked at the draft. However, over the past three seasons, he has developed into an incredibly effective player who has played a key role in his team’s first-round series versus the Edmonton Oilers.

Kings' Blake Lizotte: Sends assist

Lizotte posted an assist and two shots on goal in Saturday's 2-1 win over the Blue Jackets.

Kings' Blake Lizotte: Pots pair in Tuesday's win

Lizotte scored two goals in Tuesday's 5-2 win over the Blackhawks. Lizotte gave the Kings a 3-1 lead late in the second period with what later turned into the game-winning goal when Chicago scored again in the third. Chicago cutting the deficit to 4-2 late in the third helped Lizotte in more ways than one, as that goal prompted the Blackhawks to pull their goalie in an attempt to extend the comeback, which set the stage for Lizotte's empty-netter with 1:36 to go. The pair of tallies ended a 10-game goal drought for Lizotte and raised his season goal total to 10.
