Inside the Mind of LA Kings center Colin Fraser

Colin Fraser LA Kings MayorsManor
Colin Fraser may only see fourth line minutes with the LA Kings, but he’s a top-line interview and power play specialist when it comes to humor.  Some of his best work may have come during the recent lockout too, when he was tweeting questions to guests appearing on the MayorsManor show – like the time he wanted to know, ‘Who does the spooning, Lewey or Dewey?’ (in reference to Trevor Lewis or Drew Doughty, of course).  The answer to that question can be found in a link at the end of this article.

What you’re really here for first though is a peek inside Fraser’s mind…

Q: Last time you got caught with your head down?

A: That goes back to my days in Chicago when I got nailed by Francis Bouillon. Smaller guy, low center of gravity. At 5-8 and 200 pounds he’s pretty solid.

One guy who you can’t turn your back on in the locker room or you will be his next practical joke victim?

No question, Matt Greene. He’s always keeping the boys loose. He told me the day he stops making me a victim is the day he stops liking me.

What do you remember most about your first game?

I remember it was against Jeremy Roenick when he was with the Coyotes. Here he was this 50 goal scorer, a great player and I actually got to take my first face off against him.

When you are not sleeping on the plane, you are?

I’m watching “Breaking Bad” on DVD

One perk you enjoy by being a pro athlete?

Food!! Every time you turn around someone is shoving food in your face and it’s usually pretty good.

Worst road locker room?

Calgary sticks out in my mind. It is a tough one.

Your favorite hockey rivalry growing up?

I hate to say it, but growing up in British Columbia I was a Canucks fan. So I was got pumped up about watching Vancouver versus Edmonton or Calgary.

Worst injury you suffered in a game but still kept playing?

I played three games with a broken foot. It was more of an annoyance than actual pain. The X-rays were initially negative and then the trade came to Los Angeles and that started out as a bit of a fiasco.

One guy you wished you had the opportunity to play with?

The “Great One”. Don’t think that needs any explanation.

One celebrity that would be cool to hang out with?

If I wasn’t married, it would be Charlie Sheen.

What stands out from your day with the Stanley Cup?

How it brings together family and friends. The look on everyone’s face when they see the Cup and how much they enjoy it. It was pretty special.
