2010 Eddie Joyal Award – gm3 leaderboard update

After the Kings lost to the Coyotes by a cumulative score of 5-2 tonight, some people may be asking ‘Where is the offense?’

Fear not, it’s preseason. Not only does it not mean much in the big picture, but the games are being somewhat watered down due to the Kings setting an NHL record by inviting 427 people to training camp this year. In fact, the rumor I heard was that next year they plan on trumping their own ‘super camp’ idea by being the first team to ever play three preseason games simultaneously.

My understanding is they’ll be hosting a game at Staples, while also playing games in Anaheim and San Jose. Should be a good time.

That’s next year though…back to the updates on this preseason…

Tonight in Los Angeles the Kings had one goal, from Brayden Schenn (his first of the preseason, assisted by Dustin Brown and Jack Johnson). Over in the desert, Poni Boy (Alex Ponikarovsky) picked up an unassisted goal.

Thus, after three games we have a three-way tie for this year’s Eddie Joyal Award:

2 pts Williams (1g, 1a)
2pts  Ponikarovsky (1g, 1a)
2 pts Stoll (2a)

Last year’s winner, Anze Kopitar, has yet to register a point.  Shocking.

Equally as perplexing, Kevin Westgarth is not looking like a good bet at his opening odds of 19-1.

The Kings players won’t get another crack at a the leaderboard until Tuesday night, when the Ducks visit Staples Center.  Roster cuts are set to begin soon, so the game night line-up will look a little different by then.  Meaning, perhaps – perhaps – the offense will show up and the battle for the award will finally start to heat up.

We’re half way there.  Three games down, three games to go.
