Kings place Marian Gaborik on IR

The Los Angeles Kings placed right wing Marian Gaborik on injured reserve Saturday with a lower-body injury.

Gaborik left Friday's game against the Rangers in the first period and did not return after colliding with New York's Dominic Moore.

The Kings, who play at New Jersey on Sunday afternoon, sent Gaborik back to Los Angeles on Saturday for further examination.

Gaborik, who turns 34 on Sunday, has 12 goals and 10 assists in 54 games this season.
