Kings’ practice is now underway at TSC. Here here are a few key notes this morning…
– Defenseman Alec Martinez was officially placed on IR yesterday afternoon and rookie Andrew Campbell was recalled from Manchester (AHL) to take his roster spot. Coach Darryl Sutter was non-commital yesterday when asked if he or Jake Muzzin would get the start on Friday vs. the Blue Jackets.
– Sutter also said he hadn’t decided on a goaltender yet for the game with the Blue Jackets, so it will be interesting to see if he tips his hand at all today.
– Perhaps in response to Sutter’s ‘historical’ comments about Willie Mitchell yesterday, Mitchell provided the following update late last night via twitter:
— Willie Mitchell (@Willie_Mitch33) February 14, 2013
– Keaton Ellerby is trying to catch up as quickly as possible (and Drew Doughty is helping him off the ice). Read more of what’s been going on in the last 48 hours here.
– The line combinations look fairly set for tomorrow night. This is how they were paired up today:
Simon Gagne – Anze Kopitar – Dustin Brown
Kyle Clifford – Jeff Carter – Justin Williams
Dwight King – Mike Richards – Jordan Nolan
Dustin Penner – Jarret Stoll – Trevor Lewis
Colin Fraser and Brad Richardson (extra skaters)
Keaton Ellerby – Drew Doughty
Rob Scuderi – Slava Voynov
Jake Muzzin – Davis Drewiske – Andrew Campbell
We’ll provide live updates via twitter today. So be sure to follow along.
