With an offense that continues to provide less than consistent scoring, it was only a matter of time until a move had to be made in Los Angeles. As we first discussed when NHL team’s had to submit their initial rosters to the league office, coach Darryl Sutter was going to carry eight defenseman until [...]
As part of tonight’s coverage of the Kings-Coyotes game in Phoenix, I once again joined Matthew Ross and the guys on TSN radio in Montreal for some Western Conference hockey discussion. During the guest spot we discussed a laundry list of topics, including – Darryl Sutter, Jonathan Quick vs Ben Scrivens vs Jonathan Bernier, line [...]
Prior to tonight’s Edmonton Oilers vs LA Kings game, I once again joined Jason Strudwick on TSN Radio to preview the Pacific Division match-up and break down several key issues. We talked about Jeff Carter, Drew Doughty, Anze Kopitar, Daniel Carcillo, Kyle Clifford, Matt Frattin, Darryl Sutter, trade rumors and much more. Give it a listen and [...]
-Darryl Sutter on playing 5-on-5 and not getting a lot of scoring chances:
“We drew penalties that allowed us to score goals 5-on-5, so you know I’m not too caught up in that. We scored enough goals to win every game.”
-Sutter on Dustin Brown’s physicality:
“The first goal he scored, isn’t that being physical? He comes out [...]

While the comedic relief for the day came courtesy of Dustin Penner and Drew Doughty – see here for their quotes – it was Kings forward Jeff Carter who was quick to remind everybody that there will actually be a real, regular season game played at Dodger Stadium come January 2014.
Following the main portion of [...]
Who might be the luckiest guy in Kings training camp this year? None other than Matt Frattin.
He’s gone from being in and out of the line-up the past two seasons in Toronto to being handed the left wing spot on a line with Mike Richards and Jeff Carter.
Not too shabby, eh?
Unlike some other players who [...]

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 [...]
