If you didn’t attend Friday’s charity game at the Kings practice facility in El Segundo, you missed a great night of hockey. Sure it was just an exhibition game, but nearly everywhere you turned – from the two dozen NHL players to the sold-out number of fans who packed the building – just about everybody [...]
The emergence of Kyle Clifford during his rookie season in the NHL two years ago is partly what allowed the Kings to trade Wayne Simmonds to Philadelphia in June 2011. It’s not like they’re mirror images of each other – one plays the right side, the other the left – but simply put, each guy [...]

Sadly, the Kings won’t be raising their Stanley Cup banner tomorrow [...]
Through the years we’ve had a variety of guests on the MayorsManor show – including prospects, current players and several NHL legends. Today is no different, although we’re going in a slightly different direction. Instead of talking to one of the guys on the ice we’ll be joined by somebody who watches from the stands.
