Matt Greene’s first assist of the season – packing the Kings

Defenseman Matt Greene has picked up 40 assists in 381 NHL games. And while this might not count in his official stats, he picked up his first helper of the season as the Kings were preparing for a trip overseas.

In the days leading up to their departure, several members of the team participated in a series of interviews – including the following segment – for a special edition of the MayorsManor podcast, titled European travel with the LA Kings.’

However, knowing that some of you prefer to read things, rather than listen to them (translation: you can’t listen to podcasts at work, buy you can read the site on your lunch hour – cough, cough), here’s Greener having a little fun at the expense of his teammates…

Question for Greene: If you were to help each of these guys pack for the long trip, what’s the one thing they need to remember to bring?

Dustin Brown – “His teeth.”

Mike Richards – “He seems pretty together.”  (note: ironically, during the podcast, Richards said the thing he was most worried about bringing was his toothbrush)

Anze Kopitar – “His checkbook. He’s going to be buying a lot of tickets.”

Justin Williams – “Cards, he likes to gamble.”

Dustin Penner – “Everything – who knows what he’s going to pull out of that bag.”

Alec Martinez – “His family tree. There’s some Spanish there, you know – maybe he can connect with some relatives.”

Willie Mitchell – “I think he has it (all) covered with his iphone. He can get everything he wants, if he just remembers that.”

Rob Scuderi – “Christmas Vacation…and (he can just) watch it over and over again.”

Jonathan Quick – “Maybe a light weather jacket. Quickie has a nice one. He’ll remember that though.”

Ethan Moreau – (it should be noted that Scuderi was sitting near by at this point and chimed in with ‘teeth,’ to which Greene replied…) “We already had Brownie with teeth. So, maybe Brownie can remember Chop’s teeth and Chop can remember Brownie’s teeth.”

If you like these type of articles, there are plenty more to come in the next few days – including all new quotes on who and why certain LA Kings players are funnier than others.
