It’s been three years since he last wore a Los Angeles Kings jersey in an NHL game. Yet, for much of the seven years prior, that’s all he knew.
His journey to the NHL wasn’t an easy one either. Originally drafted by the Islanders in 1992, he only played parts of two seasons there before signing with [...]

Mayor's Manor Videos

Late last week the Stanley Cup traveled to London, Ontario – a place Drew Doughty has often described as ‘The best place on Earth.’
Festivities began with Doughty and Carter as the guests of honor in a parade through town.  Then, each player was given his full day with the Cup. We already posted video of Doughty’s events here.  And [...]

It’s always great to catch up with Jim Fox and last night was no exception. He was one of the first guests we ever had on MayorsManor many years ago and he’s been back dozens of time since, even serving as our unofficial correspondent when the Kings are on the road. We’ve featured him in text articles, on [...]

Less than 20,000 people were in the building the night the Kings won the Stanley Cup. Yet, much like the ‘Miracle on Manchester’ stories told decades later, thousands more will likely claim they were there in the years to come. When Eric Stonestreet shares his memories though, he’ll be telling the truth.
A star on ABC [...]

While video of the party isn’t expected to made public, here’s what the Cup was up [...]

The Evil Genius, Deano, the Man with the Plan – call him what you will. Yet the fact remains, Dean Lombardi accomplished something no other General Manager was ever able to do in Los Angeles. So, he probably prefers you preface his introduction with ‘GM of the Stanley Cup Champion LA Kings.’
Here are some video [...]

Besides matching shirts, the theme of this summer’s Stanley Cup parties seems to be for former teammates and other NHL players to join in on all the fun the Kings are having.
Above, Eric Cole (of the Montreal Canadiens) helps Willie Mitchell drink from the Cup. As previously reported, Justin Williams had the Bruins’ Dennis Seidenberg [...]

Former Kings prospect Ray Kaunisto is in transition. After playing in Manchester for the past two seasons, his contract wasn’t renewed and he’s currently in search of a team – a process he talked with us about a few weeks ago here.
For the early part of the summer he shut down his twitter account, much [...]
