Matt Frattin quotes after game in Anaheim

Raw quotes from Kings forward Matt Frattin following Tuesday’s pre-season game in Anaheim…

On how much he has practiced special teams:

“Not that much. A little bit on the morning skates before games. Just breakouts and end zone a little bit. It’s five on zero, so it’s nothing with pressure. In games, we’re moving the puck really well and we’re winning the battles off rebounds. That’s very key for our power play.”

On playing with Jeff Carter and Mike Richards:

“They’re two great players. Carts has the fast speed down the wing, and he has that long reach and he has a great shot. Richie is just a smart, hardworking guy and he will get you the puck if you’re wheeling.”

On if he thinks his line has chemistry:

“I think it’s only two games. We had a tough first game and a pretty good second game. It’s too early. We have to keep working at it and keep practicing together and build that chemistry.”

On who talks to him more on the ice, Carter or Richards:

“They both do. I ask them questions and they tell me what they’re thinking. There is pretty good communication between all three of us.”

On the opportunity to play with them:

“They’re guys who have played in the Olympics for team Canada plenty of times, so they’ve definitely proved themselves. They definitely bring me along and they’re great line mates for me.”

  1. Had a nice a game! Hope we didn’t get bamboozled in that deal.

  2. Crown Royal says:

    Frattin’s three point night solidifies what will probably be the Kings opening night roster. Despite what DS is saying about a lot of players in the mix for possibly three or four roster spots, that isn’t so much the case barring injuries.

    Brown-Kopi-Williams
    Frattin-Richards-Carter
    Clifford-Stoll-Lewis
    King-Frazier-Nolan

    Carcillo

    Regeher-Doughty
    Mitchell-Voynov
    Muzzin-Green

    Martinez-Schultz

    Quick
    Scrivens

    Kozun will begin the season in another organization. Ellerby will probably be waived and go to Manchester.

    Manchester will be loaded with potential:

    Toffoli, Pearson, Vey, Shore, Weal, Andreoff, Kitsyn, Sabourin, plus several good D-man candidates and Jones who has some potential as a back-up…Vey and Weal will probably not make it with the Kings as they are both much more top-six guys and don’t figure as well in the mix in the bottom two lines. Within two years Shore and Andreoff figure to be the third and fourth line centers. Toffoli will eventually replace Williams and Pearson will be somewhere in the top three lines. Sabourin will have a shot at the fourth line right wing spot.

    The three Russians, Kitsyn, Zykov and Prokhorin will make it even more interesting.
