Doesn’t look like That 70s Line will be skating together anytime soon.

With Tanner Pearson sidelined (and facing surgery) for a broken fibula, the Kings will now reportedly also be without Tyler Toffoli for the next 3-4 weeks as he deals with mononucleosis, per LA Kings Insider.

Toffoli, 22, sits third on the team in scoring this season with 27 points through 41 games, but has missed the last two while dealing with the illness. Per Kings Insider, he skated for 10 minutes this morning for the second straight day and wasn’t feeling any “major effects” from mono.

That said, it’s clear Toffoli won’t be rushed back into action.
