Kopitar injury update

Anze Kopitar is scheduled to undergo surgery on his right ankle/leg on Wednesday and, almost certainly, will not be able to return to the ice this season regardless of how deep the Kings might go in the playoffs. There is ligament damage involved — torn ligaments caused by a high ankle sprain — that is causing the bulk of the problem, but Kopitar is expected to make a full recovery, according to the report released by the Kings.
