Depressing, sounds like the end of the road for Willie.
According to the LA Times, it sounds like just the knee,6516115.story

He just had a second surgery to clean up the knee. So, Lombardi was likely talking about just the issues that popped up to cause him to have a second surgery on it.

Veteran Kings defenseman Willie Mitchell, who has been out all season, required a second surgery this week on his injured knee, according to his agent Mike Liut.

The procedure was designed to clean up "some debris" in the knee, Luit said. Previously, Mitchell tried at least one round of platelet-rich plasma therapy.

Mitchell, a big piece of the Kings' run to the Stanley Cup, injured his knee during the lockout and had surgery to remove some cartilage.

He reinjured the knee during his rehabilitation, pushing too hard too soon before training camp. At times, he appeared close to coming back to action once the season started but spoke of swelling in the knee in late January.
