Kings' Viktor Arvidsson: Set for back surgery

Arvidsson is expected to undergo surgery for a herniated disc Tuesday and is slated to miss 3-5 months, Lisa Dillman of The Athletic reports. Based on the recovery timeline, Arvidsson could be cleared in time for the start of training camp but certainly won't be able to put together a full offseason training program. As such, fantasy players may want to anticipate a slow start to the 2022-23 campaign for the winger. Despite being limited to just 66 games this year, the Swede still notched 20 goals and 45-plus points, his fourth time reaching both of those thresholds in his career.

Viktor Arvidsson is quietly having his best season in years

The acquisition of Viktor Arvidsson elevated the LA Kings out of the rebuild, and the Swedish forward is enjoying a terrific season. Last year with Nashville, Viktor Arvidsson played in 50 games and had 10 goals and 15 assists for 25 points. In fear of losing him for nothing to Seattle in the expansion draft, the Predators traded him to the LA Kings for two draft picks, a second-rounder in 2021 and a third-rounder in 2022.
