Time to talk some LA Kings and San Jose Sharks hockey. Once again, I joined Sportsnet 960 to share some news and opinions on tonight’s battle for first place in the Pacific Division. Among the topics we hit on were – Darryl Sutter, Mike Richards, Jeff Carter, Drew Doughty, Slava Voynov, Willie Mitchell, Jonathan Quick, [...]
On Wednesday afternoon, Manchester Monarchs coach Mark Morris was a guest on NHL Network Radio with host Scott Laughlin. During the course of the conversation, Morris had plenty to say about the Kings top prospects, both the players currently with the big club and several of the stars-in-waiting down in the AHL. Here’s a transcript [...]
Kings forward Justin Williams picked up an assist on LA’s first goal of the game against Tampa Bay on Tuesday night, then added a goal of his own early in the second period. With three shots and a plus-2 rating to go along with his two-point performance, Williams earned the third star of the game.
Following the Kings 5-1 win over the visiting Vancouver Canucks, here’s what was being said back in the LA locker room…
- Linden Vey on the overall game: “After every shift and every game I feel a lot better, and it’s good to get the win especially with the rivalry between the two teams the last [...]
It was a night to remember for 22-year old Linden Vey. The former WHL scoring champion made his NHL debut, a little more than four years after being selected by the Kings in the fourth round (96th overall) by the Kings back at the 2009 NHL Draft.
One of the last times he wore a Kings [...]
On Tyler Toffoli and Linden Vey coming up while Jeff Carter goes on the injured list:
“Obviously Carts is a big loss, but hopefully it’s not for very long. Personally, I didn’t even know until I came into the rink today, it’s one of those surprises, I guess for me anyways. Tyler’s been here, obviously played [...]
In a story reported earlier on MayorsManor, the Kings are in the process of making a series of roster moves – including putting Jeff Carter on the injured list, then calling up both Tyler Toffoli and Linden Vey from Manchester.
Following the team’s practice this morning in El Segundo, here’s what Anze Kopitar had to say about things…
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 [...]
The Monarchs likely took to the ice with revenge on their minds Saturday, after dropping the first game of a back-to-back set against the visiting St. John’s IceCaps the night before. With Kings GM Dean Lombardi in attendance once again, Manchester used a four goal second period to ultimately come out on top 5-3 in [...]
Hopefully by now you’ve had a chance to read the article put up over the weekend predicting what moves the Kings would be making to get down to the maximum roster size of 23 players. Perhaps the most common question asked this week is how/why Tyler Toffoli didn’t make the final list.
It’s explained in that [...]
