AEG owned hockey team wins league championship

You might be able to spot Dustin Brown, Anze Kopitar and Mike Richards in the above picture. Yet, those certainly aren’t the jerseys you’re used to seeing them play in.
They’re the sweaters normally worn by the Eisbaren Berlin Polar Bears, a team owned by Philip Anschutz (of Anschutz Entertainment Group, parent company to the Kings).

10 Tidbits from LA Kings practice – April 24, 2012

We’re going to resurrect an old favorite here at MayorsManor, the ’10 Tidbits’ theme for quick articles. With the Kings returning to practice today for the first time since ousting the Canucks on Sunday, things were pretty much business as usual.

VIDEO: Blues players talk about facing Kings in 2nd round

Following the Kings win last night vs. Vancouver, they now advance to the second round for the first time in over a decade.

Jarret Stoll remains focused, confident and humble

As noted during last night’s MayorsManor post-game show, you have to hand it to Jarret Stoll. He went from playing top-six minutes and being a big part of the Kings power play over the last few years to essentially a role player. Sure, he spent some time at wing this season – not his natural position [...]

Quick notes from Monday call with Jarret Stoll (part one)

Although today was a (well deserved) day off for the LA Kings, the team’s media department was kind enough to pull together a conference call with Jarret Stoll. Here are some of the highlights…

Contest: First Goal – 4/23/2012 playoff games

Another day, more NHL playoff games…
So, the playoff edition of our First Goal Contest (announced last weekend) keeps going.
We’ve noted this several times, but will do so again just for good measure - this is a different version than the traditional MayorsManor First Goal Contest (that runs exclusively during LA Kings games).  Here, you’re competing in [...]

POLL: LA Kings 3-stars and first round MVP

Anze Kopitar [...]
