LA Kings Training Camp 2011 – Player Groups A, B and C

Saturday morning at 8:30 am the Los Angeles Kings – well, about one-third of them – will take the ice in El Segundo for the opening of the team’s main training camp.

Over two dozen of the participants have been in Rookie Camp for the last week or so and the majority of other players and have been around the training facility, working out on a volunteer basis, for the last few weeks as well.

Now, it’s all for real.

Saturday’s schedule:

Group A – Practice – 8:30 – 10:00 a.m.
Group A – Practice – 10:20 – 11:00 a.m.
Group A – Skate – 11:05 – 11:30 a.m.

Group B – Practice – 11:20 – 12:50 p.m.
Group B – Practice – 1:10 – 1:50 p.m.
Group B – Skate – 1:55 – 2:20 p.m.

Group C – Practice – 2:10 – 3:40 p.m.
Group C – Practice – 4:00 – 4:40 p.m.
Group C – Skate – 4:45 – 5:10 p.m.

Practice is on the main ice, skate sessions are on the Olympic rink.  Sunday’s schedule will be group B, C, then A.  Monday will be C, A, B.

The entire training camp roster has been divided as follows:

GROUP A

Goalies – Jonathan Bernier, Michael Morrison

Defensemen – Andrew Campbell, Nicolas Deslauriers, Thomas Hickey, Jack Johnson, Ray Macias, Rob Scuderi, Teigan Zahn

Forwards – Justin Azevedo, Dustin Brown, Taylor Carnevale, Simon Gagne, Justin Johnson, Dwight King, Trevor Lewis, Mike Richards, Brad Richardson, CJ Stretch, Tyler Toffoli, Kevin Westgarth

[who knows why they felt the need to put Jack Johnson and Justin Johnson in the same pool of players]

GROUP B

Goalies – Christopher Gibson, Jonathan Quick

Defensemen – Drew Doughty (arrival still TBD), Shaun Heshka, David Kolomatis, Willie Mitchell, Patrick Mullen, Jake Muzzin, Alex Roach

Forwards – Trent Hunter, Anze Kopitar, Brandon Kozun, Andrei Loktionov, Ethan Moreau, Jordan Nolan, Cam Paddock, Dustin Pennner, Michael Schumacher, Linden Vey, JD Watt, Justin Williams

GROUP C

Goalies – Martin Jones, Jeff Zatkoff

Defensemen – Michal Cajkovsky, Davis Drewiske, Pierre Durepos, Matt Greene, Alec Martinez, Colin Miller, Viatcheslav Voynov

Forwards – Andy Andreoff, Michael Cantor, Marc-Andre Cliche, Kyle Clifford, Rich Clune, Robert Czarnik, Ray Kaunisto, David Meckler, Rob Mignardi, Scott Parse, Jarret Stoll, Jordan Weal

NOTE: Goalie JF Berube is also in camp – however, he’s not expected to be ready for full contact (hip surgery) for about two more weeks

Obviously, the main roster players are pretty much the same as last season – with three major exceptions: the additions of Gagne, Richards and Moreau.
