NHL - US Sports: Kings a tough challenge says Arvidsson

Forward Viktor Arvidsson scored twice to help the Los Angeles Kings beat the Arizona Coyotes 3-2 on Wednesday before stating the in-form Kings are a challenge for other teams to compete with.

 

Los Angeles, 35/1 to win the Stanley Cup in 2021/22, have won three in a row, are 7-02 in their past nine away games, and 7-1-2 in the last ten games overall.

Off-season arrival

Arvidsson was acquired by the Kings from the Nashville Predators in the off-season and has contributed 34 points (15 goals, 19 assists) in 44 games in his debut season.

In his past seven games, the Swedish winger has amassed nine points (five goals, four assists) helping the Kings move up to third place and a playoff position in the Pacific Division (27-17-7).

Over 429 games with the Kings and Predators, the 28-year-old has scored 273 points (142 goals, 131 assists). In the playoffs, he has 27 points (12 goals, 15 assists) in 61 appearances.

Tougher prospect

Centreman Trevor Moore assisted each of Arvidsson's goals against the Coyotes, and the Swede praised his line-mate after the game labelling him an "elite player" who he has built "good chemistry" with.
 
Arvidsson commented to the media: "I think we're really hard to play against, we're on the puck all time and that frustrates the other team. I think that's our strength.

"We take pucks to the net and we create offensive chances and play really solid defensively."
