In advance of Saturday afternoon’s game with the Kings at Staples Center, the Canucks held an optional skate at Toyota Sports Center earlier today. Among the handful of players participating was goaltender Roberto Luongo - who lost 3-2 via a shootout when Vancouver visited Los Angeles earlier this season. Following about a 30-minute workout with a handful of his [...]
Recently, we brought you stories about two new masks being put together for Kings’ goaltenders. First, we looked at the work in progress for propsect JF Berube, who was paying tribute to two LA hockey legends. Then, last week, we went behind the scenes with Jonathan Bernier to get exclusive details on his new mask design.
Now, with both [...]
Everybody knows the story by know – Jonathan Quick, last year’s playoff MVP, had back surgery over the summer. So, there were many questions coming out of the lockout and into 2013 about his health, leaving many wondering if he’d be able to repeat the amazing numbers posted last season.
Through seven games, few questions have probably been answered.
He looked shaky in game [...]
After ‘What happened to the Kings defense?’ the most common question we received last night was – ‘What’s the deal with that mask Jonathan Bernier is wearing?’
So, let’s get to the bottom of it…
“I’ve been with Reebok for a long, long time,” Bernier said, as he began to break things down for MayorsManor. “I used [...]
Based on the volume and type of questions coming in on twitter, facebook and our email address, it looks like about 30% of hockey fans might have checked out for long periods during the lockout.

Throughout the lockout people kept saying – including here on MayorsManor – one positive to the NHL’s work stoppage was the time it afforded Conn Smythe winner Jonathan Quick to heal his aching back. But, don’t tell that to last season’s MVP of the playoffs.
“It put everybody out of work for a long time. There’s not [...]
Just minutes after practicing with several of his teammates today Jonathan Quick uttered a few simple words that gave Kings fans and management an opportunity to exhale.
Their runaway MVP of last season shared that he’s been medically cleared to play.
As reported back in October when Quick was skating in separate sessions from his NHLPA brethren, the reigning Conn Smythe Trophy winner was never actually [...]
Kings goaltending prospect JF Berube didn’t end 2012 as planned.
He had expected to be in Manchester the last few months, after spending his first pro season in the ECHL last year. However, GM Dean Lombardi and staff determined it would be better for Berube to play with the Ontario Reign again, rather than be a back-up to Martin Jones [...]
After 543 games played in the National Hockey League, goaltender Marty Turco may have manned his last crease…or he might not have. Much like the NHL lockout, Turco’s future remains to be determined.
At the moment, he’s an unrestricted free agent and can sign with any team interested once play resumes. But, does he want to come [...]
