Penner and Lewis still searching for more confidence

Trevor Lewis is a former first round draft pick. And NHL General Managers usually don’t use their top selection on a forward who is going to play a largely defensive role.  Guys going that early in the draft are typically snipers.
Like many young prospects though, Lewis just wanted to play in the big leagues.  So, he had no problem with [...]

Word Association: Kopitar, Lewis, Penner vs the Oilers

Last season the Kings went 2-1-1 vs. the Oilers, but that seems like such a long time ago. The more recent memory is of the Kings game in Edmonton just a few weeks ago – where there was some crazy officiating all night long and they eventually lost when Sam Gagner scored in overtime. However, the most lasting image [...]

CBJ at LA: Pre-game comments from Kopitar, Richards, Penner, etc.

When Kings’ coach Darryl Sutter gave a major shake-up to the team’s lines last weekend there were some odd pairings on paper. However, the results worked out fine, perhaps even better than expected. LA played a solid game in Detroit on Sunday and then picked up a dominating win in St. Louis on Monday.
Here’s some [...]

Dean Lombardi impressed with a pair of former ECHL players

During every off-season of Dean Lombardi‘s tenure as General Manager in Los Angeles he’s been asked about possible free agents and trades that might be available to improve the Kings. Within his replies he was usually quick to point out that although he’d explore both those avenues, there was another far-more-important factor at play.
Lombardi repeatedly preached the [...]

Game 2: Kings at Avs – post-game notes, quotes and highlights

So much for that new look power play talked about here yesterday.  The Kings went 0-6 with the man-advantage in last night’s 3-1 loss to the Colorado Avalanche.
Amze Kopitar returned to the line-up in Denver, but didn’t register a single shot in the game and uncharacteristically won less than half of the faceoffs he took [...]

VIDEO: Drew Doughty talks twitter and New Orleans Saints

By now just about anybody following the Kings knows that Drew Doughty is a big Toronto Blue Jays fan – even though he didn’t so well in this infamous trivia challenge. 
But, the former Norris Trophy finalist has now entered a whole new world.  He’s signed up for twitter earlier today and will be likely begin sharing [...]

VIDEO: Trevor Lewis on Doughty and LA Kings fans

Look, if you’re Matt Greene and you haven’t joined twitter because you think you’re not funny or that people don’t care what you have to say (his two usual excuses), that’s fine.
However, if you’re a hockey fan and you haven’t joined twitter yet, you’re sorely missing out. Not only would you be getting our live [...]

VIDEO: Trevor Lewis making predictions, talking Westgarth

Yesterday we posted videos with Drew Doughty, Anze Kopitar, Dustin Penner, Jonathan Quick and Mike Richards. Click here if you missed any of those discussions.
Now we turn to third-line right wing Trevor Lewis. He gave some parting thoughts on Kevin Westgarth, talked a little Tyler Toffoli and then went into the prediction business…

Photo Gallery: Kyle Clifford vs Trevor Lewis

Following a format we used yesterday as a final goodbye to the CHL and the time Alec Martinez spent there with the Allen Americans, here’s a quick recap of Kyle Clifford and Trevor Lewis in the ECHL (for anybody who wasn’t paying much attention during the NHL lockout).  The story culminates with the two of them [...]
