04:09 PM ET 04.04 | Los Angeles Kings defenseman Willie Mitchell might miss the entirety of the 2013-14 regular season due to continued issues with his knee. Mitchell underwent surgery earlier in the year and recently required another surgery. This surgery might impact his ability to play next season, according to general manager Dean Lombardi. Lombardi states that the information is still being gathered, but there is some indication that Mitchell might miss next season as well as this season. Mitchell is currently signed to a two-year, $7 million contract that carries an annual average value of $3.5 million against the salary cap. Los Angeles will be limited in how they handle the deal, as Mitchell was over-35 when he signed the contract. If they need to, they can place him on long-term injured reserve.

When I first looked at the picture I though he was riding a Harley Chopper but, it's only Logan Couture. :-)

Rumors also flying that Sid might be out with another concussion. He had another dental procedure, but no one has said anything about a concussion.

I wonder how long Sid will have to eat from a straw......he will be too skinny to play, when healed.

There's no way in hell anybody will keep him from playing in the playoffs if he's not concussed. He's got 3 weeks plus get there.

I don't know. That's a pretty serious injury even without being concussed. Not being able to eat solid food, and out from practice for a few weeks or more may make it tough. I don't wish his luck these days on anybody .
