Dustin Penner wants to answer your questions – live on Tuesday

Dustin Penner with Stanley Cup LA Kings MayorsManorBy now, most hockey fans know that Dustin Penner has an incredible personality off the ice. He can be engaging, sarcastic, witty and downright funny. And here’s your chance to interact with him…

Tomorrow afternoon at 3pm PST he’ll join us live on the MayorsManor show and we’ll be taking your calls!

So clear your schedule, make sure you’re available.  You won’t want to miss out on this one-of-a-kind opportunity.

While we don’t have any specific rules for the questions – he didn’t get all diva on us and request the air conditioning be set to exactly 74.5 degrees or only to be served blue M&Ms and imported bottle water – we do have one small request. Please try to be more original that asking him what he thinks about the lockout. After speaking with dozens of players over the last few months, we can assure you they’re all pretty much saying the same thing – just like you, they want a deal to get done sooner rather than later. They miss playing hockey as much as you miss watching it.

So, with that in mind, here are a few topics to help kick start your creative juices…

– Penner’s a big fan of professional wrestling. Here’s an article we once did with him where he re-imagined his Kings teammates as classic ring warriors.

– He’s also a big movie guy. If you follow him on twitter, you know all about his love for the Avengers, Batman movies… and of course, The Big Lebowski.

– On the smaller screen, apparently he watches Sons of Anarchy and Homland.

– Are you a gamer? Penner seems to favor the older, classic game consoles (like Coleco Vision and N64) according to his tweets. He’s also known to brag about his high scores on Golden Tee.

– He’s a self-proclaimed ‘comedic enthusiast.’  So, maybe you want to pick his brain about a few of the stand-up comedians he favors.

– He’s a golfer.

– For reasons we can’t figure out, the 6-foot-4 forward is really into electronic dance music.

– And, oh yeah, he hurt himself eating pancakes.

– If you’re going the hockey route, he played at the University of Maine, went undrafted, was assigned to the AHL after signing with the Ducks, eventually came to Anaheim (where he won a Stanley Cup in 2007), signed an RFA contract with the Oilers and was traded to LA in a huge deal right before the Trade Deadline in 2011.  After some less than memorable stretches over the next 18 months, he eventually scored one of the biggest goals in Kings history (vs. the Coyotes in the 2012 Western Conference Finals).  This summer he resigned for one more year in LA because, in part, he wanted to enjoy the defense of his second Stanley Cup.

– Earlier this summer he had wrist surgery, something he first discussed with us here.  Will he be ready when the NHL season finally gets underway?  Ask him.

– A few weeks ago he turned 30, something that seems to have bummed him out a little.

    My question for Dustin: You seem to take on the big brother role of protecting/coming to the defense of a lot of your teammates in games. Who do you view as a little brother on the team and take under your wing?

  2. Ask him is who is he close with off the ice? Former or current team mates. I see pictures of him and Ducks all the time…

  3. Question for DP: If LA Kings players were to participate in “Dancing With The Stars”, which of your teammates would be eliminated from the competition first? And, which teammate would win the Mirror Ball trophy?
