Word Association: Dustin Penner on the LA Kings


Pre-game chats with Dustin Penner used to be the norm when he was in LA, but now that he’s in Anaheim his visits to MayorsManor have been a little less frequent – and that’s not necessarily a good thing. Always a great quote and one of the more honest players in the league when it comes to sharing his feelings (Penner must have missed the ‘How to Speak in Cliches’ media training seminar as he was coming up through the ranks), the big left wing had plenty to say when we caught up after the Ducks morning skate in Anaheim today.

Here’s a small taste of what we talked about, followed by some Word Association:

On if anyone has told Drew Doughty which rink he has to play on, the smaller roller hockey rink or the ice rink at Dodgers Stadium:

“I’m sure somebody will lead him by the hand and show him where to go.”

On the volleyball court that they put up in left field:

“I hope they get some of the appropraite talent to play on that thing, maybe some ice girls. Instead of sweeping up the rink, maybe they’ll go over there and play a fun AND competitive game of volleyball.”

On if it was a good thing to get the loss at home out of the way before the Kings came to town:

“Yeah, it was, in a sense. It was nice to be part of that streak, but teams were coming in here and they had a very competitive mindset. They wanted to be the team that ended our regulation win streak at home. So it was good, in a way, for that to be done with and now we can move on.”

Refering back to him once saying Corey Perry was ‘milking it’ against the Kings, which LA player is most likely to milk it vs the Ducks on Saturday:

“Dustin Brown. He and Perry play a similar game. They play right on the edge.”

On what song he would like to come out to if each player gets a unique song on Saturday, like Dodger hitters do:

“I’d like to use the Pina Cola song. [MM: Matt Greene has already taken that one.] Figures, that was our song driving to the rink in Edmonton. In that case, I would come out to ‘Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go’ from Zoolander.”

Word Association…

Anze Kopitar: – “Sore jaw after the last game here.”

Dustin brown: – “The water bottle incident.”

Jarret Stoll: – “Ruggishly good looks.”

Kyle Clifford: – “If you’re going to hit me, at least let me see you coming.”

Trevor Lewis: – “He shoots and finally scores.”

Drew Doughty: – “What can be said that hasn’t already been said about a six year old.?”

Willie Mitchell: – “Rarely at a loss for words.”

Slava Voynov: – “Usually at a loss for words.”

Jonathan Quick: – “Congratulations on the US Olympic Team selection.”

Darryl Sutter: – “Keep holding out for that tractor.”
