A frustrated Rob Scuderi looking to take people out in the corners

Rob Scuderi Movember NHLPA MayorsManor LA KingsLast night, about two dozen NHL players skated in a charity game at Toyota Sports Center in El Segundo. We have plenty of post-game quotes and pictures from the game that we’ll be posting throughout the weekend. Let’s start with Kings defenseman Rob Scuderi

On the physical play that took place in the game – “Every once and a while when you get in the corner with somebody you have to take ’em out.”

Who he was targeting while he was on the ice – “Stollie (Jarret Stoll) was really flying out there. So, I tried to slow him down a little bit. Cliffy (Kyle Clifford), I just tried to get out of his way. He was going a little too hard.”

On Clifford, who scored the first goal of the game – “Nice move! It’s not under the ideal conditions. But, it was still a nice move. You still have to beat the goalie one-on-one.”

On the latest news coming out of this week’s CBA talks – “It’s not great. Obviously, we’re on one side of the equation and we feel that we’d like to give a little bit on some things. But, we’re hoping even the status quo would remain on some other topics. But, that doesn’t seem to be the case. It’s frustrating. You want to play the game. I know players want to play. But, what can you do? You try to be patient and you try to take it day by day and not get too frustrated. But, it does weigh on you.”

On the possibility of playing in Europe if the lockout continues – “I would consider it as time goes on. Me being an older guy and having a family here and kinda being part of a bigger community, I’m not so sure if it’s in the cards for me. But, maybe it this pushes to later on, then maybe I’ll look into something.”

On the mustache he’s growing for Movmeber (pictured above) – “It’s a little creepy right now. They wouldn’t let me bring my kids to school. But, it’s coming along.”
