POLL: LA Kings Player of the Month – November 2011

Time for some more house cleaning. Sure, this poll should have gone up on Thursday morning. Life happens. And yes, this poll is for the month of November. So, it does not take into account anything that occurred Thursday night vs. Florida or Saturday afternoon vs. Montreal.

Here we go…

First, a look back at the team as a whole. In the month of November, the Kings were 6-5-2, a little worse off than their 6-3-2 record in October. Their 28 points were second best in the division (behind Dallas, 29) and placed them sixth in the Western Conference. LA is also 6-1-2 vs. Pacific division opponents.

The power play, which had been converting at 23.1% in October, had fallen to 17.4% at the end of the NHL’s second month. On the penalty kill, things had dropped a few points as well, going from 86.1% down to 84.4%.

Individually, here are your nominations for Player of the Month, November 2011:

{listed in alphabetical order)

Simon Gagne – four goals, four assists

Anze Kopitar – four goals, six assists, still leads the team in points

Jonathan Quick – 4-5-2 record, .924 save percentage, one shutout

Mike Richards – nine goals, one assist, moved into team goal scoring lead

Slava Voynov – one goal, one assist, 10 shots on goal in seven games since being called up

Who gets your vote?



Vote now, poll ends Wednesday morning at 11am PST.

For the record, last month’s winner was Jonathan Quick. He captured 63% of the votes, the most ever in one of our ‘Player of the Month’ polls. Full results are available here.
