AUDIO: Guest spot on EDM radio – talking Kings pre-season questions

On Monday evening I was back on Team 1260 in Edmonton with former NHL player Jason Strudwick to share some insights and opinions on the LA Kings upcoming season. If you missed the spot when it aired live, the full segment is available below for your listening pleasure.

We’ll tackle all the major questions surrounding the Kings’ roster heading into next week’s opening night – including the health of Darryl Sutter, what’s new with Jonathan Quick, who will back him up to start the season, how Dustin Brown’s hamstring injury could impact when he plays his first game, if Matt Frattin can hold down the left wing spot on the second line, Jarret Stoll’s availability to start the season, which team could really use Colin Fraser, Matt Greene’s contract status, Willie Mitchell’s knee, Drew Doughty’s likely partner on the blueline, tidbits on prospects Tanner Pearson and Linden Vey, plus some thoughts on Jonathan Bernier’s first fight! Give it a listen..
