POLL: Who was the Kings Player of the Month for January?

With the All-Star break now behind us, it’s time to look ahead towards February – when the Kings return to the ice tomorrow night vs. the Columbus Blue Jackets. However, before we do, let’s first open up the polls to determine who was the Kings Player of the Month for January.

Overall, the Kings went 5-2-4 in 11 games last month, including a 3-2-3 record at home and 2-0-1 on the road. As for individual stats, try these brain teasers out to get the juices flowing…

- Which King led the team in shots on goal? No, he wasn’t a center. Justin Williams paced the team with 39 SOG, eight more than Koptiar.

- Which player on the second line had the most goals – Dustin Penner, Mike Richards or Jarret Stoll? None, or all, depending on how you look at it. They each had one goal. Penner led the way with 21 shots (and played one fewer game than his linemates).

- Kyle Clifford had the second most penalty minutes in January (30). Who had the most? Richards with 31. And who was third? Drew Doughty with 20. Not what you want to see from two of your best players.

OK, enough is enough. How about some nominees for the Kings’ January Player of the Month…

Dustin Brown – tied for the team goal lead (4) and produced the most hits (41) in January

Drew Doughty – led all defensemen with six assists and was a team best plus-7

Jack Johnson – most goals by a defensemen (3) and only one back from the team lead, led all d-men in shots (26), had only four penalty minutes and a plus-1 rating

Anze Kopitar – tied for the team goal lead (4) and was second in points (9)

Jonathan Quick – started ten of the team’s 11 games, posting a 4-2-4 record with one shutout and five games where he only gave up one goal – giving him a goals-against average well under 2.00

Justin Williams – Led the team in assists (7), points (10), power play goals (3) and shots (39), was also tied for second in goals (3), just one back of Brown and Kopitar


Poll closes Wednesday 2/1 at 5pm PST.
