Marian Gaborik Dual Jersey Card

The Los Angeles Kings (9-2-1, 1st in Pacific Division) are doing fine without him, but Marian Gaborik has yet to play a single game so far this year. As a matter of fact, he hasn't played a full 82-game season since 2011-12 while with the New York Rangers. Which is also the only time he played in every single game.

The three-time 40-goal scorer's best in L.A. is the 27-goal, 20-assist, 47-point performance in 69 games with the Kings in 2014-15, but he had been terrific with a 22-point Spring during the previous postseason.

He scored at least 30 goals five times while with the Minnesota Wild, 40 twice in New York, and appeared in two Olympics with Team Slovakia, including a fourth-place finish in 2010; he's known success in so many places it's hard to remember his time with the Columbus Blue Jackets as anything other than a blur.

In fact, he spent just about a calendar year in Ohio, with middling results:

But playing in Columbus produced this great-looking card:
That's card #FA-MG from Upper Deck's 2013-14 Artifacts set and Frozen Artifacts sub-set. It features two differently-coloured game-worn jersey swatches.

There is no clear timetable for his return this season.
