Los Angeles Kings head coach Darryl Sutter revealed that the lower-body injury that's kept defenseman Robyn Regehr sidelined since Game 1 of their 2nd round series against the Anaheim Ducks is a knee injury. He has yet to resume skating with the team.

Fellow defenseman Willie Mitchell had been watching the action from a distance as well after suffering a leg injury in Game 6 against the San Jose Sharks, but returned to the action at the start of the Western Conference Final against the Blackhawks.

But it looks like Regehr will have to sit for a bit longer.

"When Robyn's ready to skate, he'll skate," Sutter told reporters at the team's practice facility in El Segundo. "It's a knee injury and he'll make that decision. If he could play on one leg, he would. He showed it to us last year in the playoffs (when he played with an elbow injury) and I've seen enough of him in his career. … If there's a way to skate, he'd be playing."
