This is a big weekend in Southern California, not only are the Kings home tonight for another game, but the NHRA Drag Races are going on in Pomona – where they’re wrapping up their season and crowning champions in the pro classes – plus, you have UFC putting on one of the biggest heavyweight fights [...]
Through the years, we’ve had a variety of celebrities and athletes on MayorsManor – like Greg Hetson of the band Bad Religion, Hall of Fame pro wrestler Nick Bockwinkel and Dodgers’ left fielder Matt Kemp – to talk about a myriad of subjects.
With the UFC in town for a big fight card this Saturday night, [...]
Kings enforcer extraordinaire Kevin Westgarth played his best hockey when it mattered most last season, in the playoffs. Then, on the 19th of last month, #19 was rewarded with a two-year contract extension.
So far this season though, Westgarth hasn’t seen much ice time – getting into only two of the team’s first five games. [...]

You really have to hand it to Paul Bissonnette of the Phoenix Coyotes. He’s taken a fourth line, limited minutes role and turned into something special.
He’s a guy who’s scored four goals in 108 NHL games. Yet, he picked up more votes than captain Shane Doan for last year’s [...]
Will Simmonds fight Clifford? (photo: C. Ikiri)
There’s no denying Wayne Simmonds was a fan favorite in Los Angeles.
Almost from the moment he made the Kings as an 20-year old forward out of the Ontario Hockey League, people loved his hustle.
Simmonds went on to play 240 games and score 39 goals with the team. Then, [...]
Corey Perry and Mike Richards
Now, that may not be the best title for an article, but it will all make sense in just a few minutes…
Back in December, readers of MayorsManor voted Anaheim’s Corey Perry as their least favorite NHL player, among guys still in the league.
Perry certainly didn’t do anything to quell those feelings [...]
Kevin Westgarth, the Kings resident heavyweight this season, played in the final seven regular season games – where the Kings went 3-4.
One of those loses was to the Sharks on April 4th.
For the season, Westgarth suited up in four of the six games between the two teams and LA was 1-3 in those games. When [...]
On Friday we heard from Kings coach Terry Murray regarding the multiple fights in Thursday’s night game versus the St. Louis Blues.
He said he thought Kevin Westgarth’s scrap with Cam Janssen was “absolutely what the team needed” and said Kyle Clifford‘s injury was one of the “consequences of playing that role.”
Which is something I wanted [...]
Brad Richardson will be in the line-up tomorrow night, playing left wing.
That’s per coach Terry Murray after practice today.
You can extrapolate from that the fact that rookie Kyle Clifford will get the night off. Murray also talked about Clifford a little when talking about Kevin Westgarth’s fight last night vs. the Blues.

Today marks the fourth and final meeting between the Kings and Blue Jackets, two teams heading in opposite directions since they met up on January 8th – Trevor Lewis’ birthday.
Back then LA was mired in a horrible slump at home and stuck at 12th place in the standings. Since then, the Kings have found [...]
