Historically, goaltending hasn’t been one of the strongest facets of the Kings organization. Yes, they had Rogie Vachon in the ’70s and now have Jonathan Quick, the reigning Conn Smythe trophy winner. However, the only other sustained high point you could really reference in between those two would be the eight years Kelly Hrudey spent in [...]
Saturday night will be ’5-hole night’ as Luc Robitaille recently said, affectionately joking about the Kings’ pre-game ceremony prior to playing the Calgary Flames.

He’ll be heading to LA later this week and will attend the team’s poker tournament on Thursday night. First though, he makes his return visit to the [...]
In 2009 Mike Modano made his first appearance on MayorsManor. It was an in-depth look back his career, from being drafted in the first round by Minnesota to winning a Stanley Cup in Dallas, from his international success with Team USA to being dropped on his head by some EMTs and he even reflected on breaking a [...]
Thanks to the NHL lockout, the number of random hockey-related events in Southern California increased by one last week when the LA Kings offered those interested a night of stories with former player Bernie Nicholls. For a mere $50 clams, fans were invited to a night of steak and beer with Nicholls and host Bob [...]
Hopefully you joined us at noon today for the live show with Jim Fox. It was an amazing hour covering a wide array of topics – as you can imagine for a guy who’s been with the same team for over 30 years now.
There were so many great stories it would be an extremely long list if we posted them [...]
