Joining us on today’s show is Kings’ defenseman Alec Martinez. The 25-year-old Michigan native has secured his spot on the LA blueline over the past two seasons and can now call himself a Stanley Cup Champion. We’ll talk with him anout how that experience may have shaped most of his summer and dig into a few of the festivities he’s participated in with the Cup.
We’ll also ask Martinez about several of his teammates – including Dustin Brown, Drew Doughty, Trevor Lewis and Dustin Penner. Plus, we’ll throw out some of these topics and see where it takes us:
- His plans during the lockout – Is he staying home or going to Europe?
- His recent use of twitter
- Dodgers, Tigers and Blue Jays baseball
- His heritage and speaking Spanish
- The three most important elements used by the Kings to win the Cup
- Interaction with his fans this summer
- Part of his Cup day being cancelled
- The best and worst NHL jerseys
- Music, movies, golf and much more
Give it a listen down below.
