Last week we posted the first cut from the annual KingsCast summer forum – aka the LA Kings Media Roundtable. Along with a handful of other people who cover the team, we spent time debating key issues currently surrounding the franchise. In the initial video we focused on free agency, Dustin Brown’s upcoming contract and Tyler Toffoli. If you missed it, you can click here to view it now.
In part two below, the central topic is Anze Kopitar.
However, before you watch the conversation unfold, let’s set the table with a few stats. Since joining the NHL in 2006-07, Kopitar has had the following dry spells:
2006-07 – two goals in 20 games (Dec 23 – Feb 6)
2007-08 – three goals in 19 games (Dec 13 – Jan 22)
2008-09 – two goals in 20 games (Dec 15 – Feb 3)
2009-10 – three goals in 16 games (Dec 14 – Jan 21)
2010-11 – two goals in 25 games (Dec 18 – Feb 10)
2011-12 – one goal in 21 games (Nov 23 – Jan 7)
2012-13 – zero goals in final 16 games of the regular season, only two goals in final 25 games
