The Sudbury Wolves alum has been largely ineffective at the NHL level this season. Although he’s recorded three assists, Byfield has posted a 40.0% Corsi rating at five-on-five, the worst on the team. Further, he’s been a defensive liability, giving up more high-danger and scoring chances than he’s created, despite starting 55.6% of his shifts in the offensive zone.
The emergence of Rasmus Kupari has rendered Byfield expendable. Kupari has appeared in five games, recording one goal, one assist, and a 54.8% Corsi rating.
The Kings are currently third Pacific Division standings and looking to make the postseason for the second straight season. They are +3500 on the Stanley Cup futures board at FanDuel Sportsbook.
