LA Kings season high/low with Kopitar, Stoll, Williams, etc.

Jarret Stoll LA Kings MayorsManor

Continuing with the series that we kicked off a few days ago, here are a few more LA Kings players sharing their personal high and low points from this year’s regular season…

Anze Kopitar – “The high point has been the last couple of weeks. Personally, I’ve been playing pretty good hockey lately. It’s been working good for me and I feel confident on the ice. The low point was when I didn’t score for about 15 games in a row. We weren’t scoring much as a team (either) and we weren’t playing well as a team.”

Jarret Stoll – “My high point is probably the last month or maybe two months. We’ve really come together as a group and we’re playing the right way. We’re playing more of a 60-minute game and putting ourselves into a good situation (most nights). The low point would be goals. I want to chip in more and help out more offensively.”

Dustin Penner – “The high point is right now and the low point? Everything before!”

Willie Mitchell – “The high point for me would be winning the division…The story hasn’t unfolded for me though, how’s that for an answer? The book’s not written yet. It’s starting to be written. But we have a lot of work to do to finish our last little chapter.”

Brad Richardson – “The low point would be sitting out of the line-up and watching. But, I don’t think I’ve hit the high point yet. I’m starting to feel better the last few games. But, still, I feel like there’s more. It’s fun playing with Kopi and Brownie though. Actually, that’s the hockey I’ve been used to playing my whole life – offensive minded hockey, moving the puck and making plays. It’s a lot more fun, that’s for sure, playing with higher end guys.”

Justin Williams – “Obviously, the low point was December and going through it all, having to fire our coach. That’s always the lowest point. The highest point is going to be in the next little while I assume, when we go out and play a good game and hopefully get the seeding that we want.”

Finally, a few weeks ago Drew Doughty told us his hatred for the Canucks was a 10 on a scale of 1-to-10. Asked where his hatred for the Sharks was, Williams had this to say – “I think I hate 29 other teams when they try to take two points from us every night. I don’t discriminate among my hate.”
