Another LA Kings player joins twitter

If you’re not on twitter, really, what are you waiting for?

It’s the quickest way to get all the news from around the NHL, including 140-character comments from several players.

Specific to the Kings, there are already a fair amount of players on twitter, with each bringing their own personality and style.

For example, there’s Dustin Penner. Already known as the quick-witted class clown, you’ll get plenty of tweets that include random movie quotes and references, plus a fair mix of electronic dance music recommendations. But the real treat with Penner are the post-game recaps he thumbs out – seemingly from the locker room because they often go up mere minutes after the action has stopped on the ice.

Then, there’s Mike Richards. If he catches you tweeting a picture of your food, expect a ‘Stop it. You’re better than that.’ type reply. During the off-season he’ll give you some hunting and fishing news too.

Team captain Dustin Brown is a little hit or miss on twitter. He seems to use it regularly and then get bored with it and put it away for a few weeks. Overall, like a good leader, he’s often very supportive of his teammates on twitter.

Jonathan Quick will give you a fair dose of NY Giants football news, especially during football season. He also likes to chirp Matt Moulson whenever he can.

Trevor Lewis is usually just making fun of Drew Doughty on twitter. Yet, surprisingly, Doughty does seem to limit his Blue Jays related tweets.

If you’re a Nickelback fan, definitely follow Colin Fraser.

If saving the environment is more up your alley, Willie Mitchell is a must follow.  The guy is a big foodie too.

Rookie Jake Muzzin has an account, but doesn’t tweet and is pretty much only there to see what I tweet about him.

Anze Kopitar, Alec Martinez, Tyler Toffoli and most of the Kings top prospects are also on twitter.

But, here’s the real news of the day – you can now add Jarret Stoll to the list. After telling MayorsManor ‘no way, no how, not me’ for the past few years, he reported today that he’s finally caved.

However, there’s one small note. He’s yet to thumb anything out just yet and says he’ll probably limit most of his tweets to the summer.  So, you can follow him right now, just don’t expect to see something until the off-season.

UPDATE – June 9, 2012 – his first tweet…

And one more note, if you’re hoping to see Matt Greene on twitter, it’s just not going to happen – as he explained here.  That said, he is an admitted lurker.

  1. Erin Andrews sure is bringing out Stoll’s inner fame whore.

    • I think Stoll finally joined Twitter and got his account verified so that people wouldn’t believe that all of the fake accounts were really his. Players all over the league are on Twitter, so I am at a loss as to why you are labeling him a fame whore.

  2. was jarrettstoll28 a fake?

    • John Hoven says:

      As I tweeted about once a month for the past year…yes, that was a fake account. So is the Matt Greene facebook page that a lot of people ask about.
