MayorsManor Live Radio with Kings prospect Tanner Pearson

Tanner Pearson LA Kings headshot MayorsManor

If you”re not going first overall in the NHL Draft, the next best thing is probably being selected by the Stanley Cup Champions. Such was the experience for Tanner Pearson last June.

Taken 30th overall by Los Angeles, the Kitchener, Ontario native is now halfway through his first pro season and has formed a deadly line with Tyler Toffoli and Linden Vey. They’re Manchester’s top scoring threat and each of them has a shot at being called up from the AHL this year if the Kings need some additional offense or if a spot opens up because of injury.

We currently have Pearson ranked as the second best prospect in the entire Kings organization and first among left wings.  With 205lbs on his 6-foot frame, the future power forward is currently tied for third in Monarchs’ scoring (29 points in 45 games).

For his inaugural appearance on the MayorsManor show, here are some of the topics we’ll cover :

– What he’s better at than Toffoli away from the rink

– Something they miss most about Jake Muzzin in Manchester

– Former teammate Rich Clune, who’s now with the Nashville Predators

– Current teammates Andy Andreoff and Andrew Campbell

– Why the Monarchs haven’t won more games this season

– The challenges of living with Andreoff

– Support from his family

– An issue he had with one of his teammates when they were opponents in the OHL

– What the term ‘power forward’ means

– The importance of jersey numbers and much more

Enjoy the show…
