* Gasper Kopitar – Anze’s younger brother talks about playing junior hockey and his dreams of making the NHL (plus, Anze reacts to some of his brother’s comments)

* Mathieu Schneider – the former Kings defeseman talks about his new role in the NHLPA

* Ted Irvine – one of the original Kings from 1967 talks about setting up the first goal in franchise history

[note: Brian Kilrea, who scored the actual goal, was on MayorsManor here – he went on to a legendary coaching career that saw him mentor a long list, including Jim Fox and current prospect Tyler Toffoli]
