REVIEW: The draft, the game and a new goalie?

Before you get ready for your big Saturday night, here are three quick Kings related notes…

* Hockey’s Future reviews the Kings’ 2010 NHL draft.  They think the Kings picked up one player who can quarterback the offense, another who has limited offensive upside and a third with an “almost comical skating style.”  The article also says that Tyler Toffoli (Kings’ 2nd rounder) has “top-six potential” – continuing a theme, with many experts thinking he may be one of the steals in this year’s draft.

* Following up on yesterday’s articles re: the Kings-Dodgers “partnership” over the last few years, they ran their joint record to a perfect 5-0 last night when the Dodgers beat the Cubs.  I hope McChris is making plans right now to have Ethier, Kemp, Loney, Billingsley, Blake, Martin, Kershaw, etc. ALL drop the puck at Kings home games this season…on separate nights of course.  Fittingly – Dodger catcher (a Canadian and a hockey fan) Russell Martin blasted a 3-run homer last night.  A full game recap is available here.

* Dustin Brown and Martin also played a little hockey in the dugout prior to DLO throwing out the first pitch.  To see the video click here.
