Colin Fraser bringing the Canucks hate, even on his birthday

For his 28th birthday Colin Fraser gets to play the Vancouver Canucks at Staples Center.

“Just another game day,” he said with a chuckle. “I don’t think there’s anything special about the 28th, maybe I’ll get something special on my 30th birthday.”

Then, in typical Fraser fashion, he was quick to give a shoutout to others.

“I’ve had a couple ‘happy birthdays’ today, it’s nice to get acknowledged,” he said. “Mitchie (Willie Mitchell), he knows it all and he seems to keep tabs on the guys. It’s always the stats guys. Guys that are always reading the stats.”

As for the game itself, he had a few thoughts on tonight’s opponent.

“They’re a rivalry for a lot of teams, those guys,” he said, in reference to Drew Doughty saying he hated the Canucks. “You go back for me when I was in Chicago. it was a big rivalry and here in LA the same thing. So, yeah, I think you could put me up there near the top at a ten as well.”

Is there another team that ranks that high for him?

“There’s obviously a big rivalry with San Jose if you had to pick one – just because it’s a divisional rivalry and every year they have a good team. But that’s what makes it fun if you ask me. I like those kinds of games and I’m sure they do too.”

What about playing a team the Kings eliminated from the playoffs for the second game in a row?

“We beat them out; we beat Phoenix out. If it was the other way around I’d be mad too. I think even before the playoffs we had a pretty good rivalry with Vancouver so. We got off to a slow start, they’ve got off to a slow start so we’ll see how things turn out.”
