Marian Gaborik has missed all but nine games of the 2016-17 season due to injury.

On Sunday when the Kings visited the Boston Bruins he was out of the lineup for a very different reason: A healthy scratch.

Given Gaborik’s ice time in recent games it should be obvious that coach Daryl Sutter is seeing something that he doesn’t particularly like. He played just 11:05 on Friday in Pittsburgh and just 13:47 the game before.

He has one goal and three assists this season but has not recorded a point in three consecutive games.

Along with Gaborik the Kings were also without Dustin Brown who is considered day-to-day with an unspecified injury.
