LA Kings players on the teammate they’re most thankful for

Throughout the U.S. today, people are supposed to be spending time with friends and family, celebrating the things they’re thankful for.

Inside the Kings locker room, here’s what a few of the players had to say when asked which teammate they were most thankful for this year – and why…

Drew Doughty – “Greener (Matt Greene) because my first year here he kind of took me under his wing, let me move in with him. I lived with him that whole first year. Then, ever since, he’s always helped me with any little thing I need.”

Kevin Westgarth – “I’d say Rob Scuderi because you can always depend on him.”

Alec Martinez – “Mike Richards. Coming in here, I can’t imagine it’s very easy getting used to a new system and playing with new guys. But, obviously, he’s done really well. He’s scored some big goals for us. He also does a lot of things that go unnoticed too – maybe not by us, but maybe they’re kinda easy to lose track of during a fast paced game. So, I’d definitely say Mike Richards. He’s a great player, but he’s a good guy in the locker room too.”

Jonathan Bernier – “I’ll say Marty (Alec Martinez) because he was my roommate and he was a good roommate last year. I need to thank him for that. It wasn’t easy, my girlfriend (now fiance) was here too. So, thanks to him.”

Jarret Stoll – “Jonathan Quick because he saves my ass out there sometimes when I make a mistake.”

Mike Richards – “Penner because he brings a lot of laughter. He has different stories every day that are pretty funny.”

For me, I’d like to say a special thanks to Jeff Moeller, Mike Kalinowski, Jeremy Zager and everyone in the Kings Communications Department for all their help. Much of what you see here on MayorsManor wouldn’t be possible without the updates and access they provide.
