If you’ve been a fan of MayorsManor the last few years, you know that one of the most quotable members of the LA Kings has to be Kevin Westgarth. From the New Year’s Resolutions he offered his teammates to things he’s learned about them to recalling many of the firsts in his life or even the exclusive details on […]
As promised, here’s the interview we recorded last night with Kings captain Dustin Brown – just before he headed to the mound and threw out the fist pitch at Dodger Stadium.
We covered a wide variety of topics, starting with his recent trip to New York and a visit to the 9/11 Memorial. As you’ll hear […]

Willie Mitchell will be staring at part of his past when he steps onto the ice tonight in New Jersey.
