News: Pearson (leg) won't play in either of the Kings' final two games of the regular season, Jon Rosen of LA Kings Insider reports.
Impact: The news doesn't come as a surprise after an X-ray last week showed that Pearson's leg hadn't healed as quickly as he had hoped. While Pearson still seems to be ahead of schedule in his recovery, he'll still require another X-ray next week before proceeding with the next step of his rehab. If the Kings qualify for the playoffs, Pearson could still be available at some point in the first round.
