From the moment LA Kings center Anze Kopitar joined younger brother Gasper and Mora IK in Sweden last month, MayorsManor has been giving you non-stop coverage – starting with the photos we posted just minutes after he took the ice for warm-ups in first game. Now that’s real-time, wouldn’t you say? They were up before the action even started…from a game halfway around the world!
Since then, we’ve had an endless stream of photos, video highlights and quotes about his performance over there.
Well, now comes the motherload. This is the FULL video of his debut vs. Djurgården on September 22, it has everything – including on-ice player introductions and all the fun from the opening faceoff through the final horn.
You’d figure it out quick enough anyway, but just to get you started – Anze is wearing #11 in red, Gasper is #22.
For photos and quotes from Kopitar’s most recent game, click here. As an added bonus, that article also includes photos and post-game notes from the debut of Alec Martinez with TPS Turku (Finland) on Tuesday.
Plus, have you seen the Kopitar brothers on the Swedish version of ‘Cribs’ yet? If not, be sure to click here – don’t worry, it’s in English.
Finally, for more Kopitar family fun, here’s our exlcusive on-ice video interview with Anze and his father just moments after the Kings won the Stanley Cup.
Special thanks to (and a stick-tap for) Evanna Grey, who contacted us all the way from Slovenia with a heads up that the above video was now available. Thanks!
