POLL: LA Kings Player of the Month – December 2011

Last December, Dustin Brown was voted the Kings’ Player of the Month – topping Anze Kopitar and Jonathan Quick in the voting.  This time around, two of those three will almost surly be the two vote-getters and Brown may even repeat as winner. We shall see.

Overall, the team went 7-6-2, which isn’t that dissimilar to their 6-5-2 record in November.  However, it was really the tale of two halves, as the Kings were 5-0-2 in the final seven games of December. Oh, and after beating the Canucks on New Year’s Eve, they found themselves in first place in the Pacific Division.

As for individual performances, here’s an overview of the most worthy candidates from last month – listed in alphabetical order…

Dustin Brown – five goals, three game-winning goals, led the team in hits (73) and shots on goal (63)

Drew Doughty – led all defensemen in points with eight assists, including six helpers during a personal best five game points streak in late December and led the team in minutes played nearly every game

Jonathan Quick – posted a 7-4-1 record with one shutout, including going 5-0-1 in his last six games with a 1.44 GAA and .951 save percentage

Honorable Mention: Willie Mitchell (major contributor to the Kings killing off the last 26 straight penalties…and the team record was glaring when he was in the line-up: 6-1-2 with him, 1-5-0 without him), Jarret Stoll (two goals, two assists, master of face offs) and Justin Williams (three goals, five assists, plus-2 rating).

Who gets your vote?

Polls closes Wednesday at 10am PST.

For the record, last month’s winner was Mike Richards. He captured 80% of the votes, the most ever in one of our ‘Player of the Month’ polls. Full results are available here.
