Marian Gaborik won't be back in the Los Angeles Kings' lineup any time soon.

Head coach Darryl Sutter said the veteran forward will be out "long term, for sure," according to Lisa Dillman of The Los Angeles Times.

Sutter added that the club hopes Gaborik is able to return in time for the postseason, which begins in mid-April.

The 34-year-old winger was hurt in a knee-on-knee collision with New York Rangers forward Dominic Moore on Friday night. The Kings placed Gaborik on injured reserve one day later.
