LA Kings’ Jarret Stoll explains the art of tucking

On most successful teams every guy knows his role.  For the Kings, their on-ice roles are simple to understand. Top-line players know they need to score goals and fourth line guys are well aware of the energy and toughness they’re expected to add. Guys like Colin Fraser even embrace it.

However, off the ice, things don’t change much either. While the personalities and job responsibilities might be divided up a little differently, each player still has a role to fulfill.  Dustin Penner is the team’s DJ and controls the locker room ipod.  Brad Richardson, resident golf pro. Dustin Brown is the self-proclaimed care taker of Drew Doughty when the team is traveling. Willie Mitchell, well, he just gives advice on any topic you need help with.

Then there’s Jarret Stoll. He’s the fashionista of the team.

Nobody has better threads or a better sense of style – no, not even you Matt Greene.

If you want to know what’s cool, just ask Stoll.

Which is why it’s so hard to understand what’s going on in the photo on the left (above).

And we weren’t the only ones who noticed.

Jeff Carter and Trevor Lewis both joked about it during recent appearances on the MayorsManor show.

So, we had to find out, what’s up with tucking the jersey?

“I had the front side tucked in, not the back side though,” Stoll began – like that somehow made it OK.

“A little bit of tuck, as long as it’s like that (holding his hands about eight inches apart),” he continued.

Wait a minute, there’s a maximum amount of jersey tuck that’s allowed in the style guide?

“You can’t go full tuck (in the front). That’s like a mullet then almost. You can’t do that, but you can do a little bit.”

As hard as he was trying to sell it, we’re still not convinced of the legality here. Last we heard, jersey tucking was a major foul.

Moving on though – let’s transition to the photo on the right, taken at a recent World Series game up in San Francisco.

“That sweater is fashionable!” Stoll was quick to blurt out.

Meaning the rest of us haven’t caught on to the impending cardigan craze then?

“I think so,” he said. “Those are coming in. They’ll be in stores near you soon!”

Hmmm.   Digging into the memory bank here, former King Alexander Frolov was a big sweater guy.  Maybe he played a hand in part of this?

“No, not Frolov. He was a big sweater guy though. It’s cold in Russia, so they’re all about sweaters and furs over there. But, it wasn’t from Frolov. It was from Target,” he said with a huge laugh.

We’ll get to that Giants hat in a later post, don’t worry!

For now, be sure to check out the replays of several recent MayorsManor shows linked below.
