What I’ve learned so far… by Kings forward Ethan Moreau

It’s a new season and there are a few new faces around the Kings locker room. Prior to leaving for their extended road trip a few weeks ago, several of the players talked about using the time away from LA to bond.

As such, over the next few days, we’ll be posting a special series titled ‘What I’ve learned so far’ – which will include comments from various members of the Kings about their teammates.

First up, wiley veteran Ethan Moreau. You may recall, MayorsManor first broke news of his signing back in late August. Since then, we’ve had him on several times – where he’s largely poked fun at Dustin Penner, Matt Greene and a few others he knew from back in Edmonton.

Here, we went after some names he may not know as well and tried to find out what he’s learned so far…

On Jack Johnson – “He’s a hell of a player. He’s probably underrated. Playing against him I could appreciate because I was killing penalties against him and had a lot of ice time against him. So, I realized how good he was. But, he’s just an immense talent and he’s going to be a high-end D for a long time.”

On Kyle Clifford – “Cliffy’s really confident for his age. He fits in well with the guys on and off the ice. He’s just a good teammate. He plays the game the way it’s supposed to be played. For the age he is, he has a lot of self-assurance. He’s really confident in who he is as a player – which is hard to do at that age.”

On Kevin Westgarth – “He just does his job. He’s a great teammate who’s always looking to make an impression on the game. He knows his role and wants to do it. For those guys, it’s a tough job for those guys mentally and physically, and it’s a long year. So, I always have respect for those guys.”

On Willie Mitchell – “I sit beside Mitchy on the back of the bus, so I think I know pretty much everything about him that there is to know. (after some laughing from Justin Williams and Jarret Stoll sitting nearby, he resumed…) He’s similar to my age, so we’ve both played a long time. We appreciate the careers that each other have had to this point. We’ve played with a lot of different names and have a lot of mutual friends. It’s cool to have somebody who’s in that same generation, where you can still talk about the mid to late-90’s and they know who you’re talking about.”

More in this series coming up soon. In the meantime, there are some related articles below. Be sure to check them out and/or leave a comment.
