If there is one thing synonymous with the LA Kings, it would have to be Bob Miller – the voice of the team for nearly 40 years. Fittingly, he’ll oversee tomorrow’s press conference where Darryl Sutter will be officially announced as the Kings new head coach by GM Dean Lombardi.
Today is an off day for the team, as they returned home late last night from a week-long road trip that saw them go 2-2 (with victories over Columbus and Toronto). Sutter will ‘coach’ the team at practice tomorrow morning, just prior to the news conference.
As a reminder, all Kings practices are free and open to the public at their training facility in El Segundo. The on-ice workout is scheduled to begin at 10:30am and probably last about one hour.
Sutter’s press conference will be for media only. However, the event will be streamed live on LAKings.com at 1pm PST.
For those unfamiliar with the 53-year-old Sutter, he’s previously been the head coach in Chicago, San Jose and Calgary. He helped lead the Flames to the Stanley Cup Finals in 2004 and his career record behind the bench is 409-320-131 in 860 regular season games.
He will make his official debut as the Kings’ coach on Thursday when the team hosts the Anaheim Ducks at Staples Center.
