During the NHL lockout in late 2012, several of the Kings players and prospects joined us weekly on MayorsManor Live. Additionally, assistant coach Davis Payne, who had recently been brought in to replace Jamie Kompon, made a highly entertaining appearance on the show.
In the spirit of Throwback Thursday, we now proudly present an encore replay of that episode. Some of the topics touched on include:
– His relationship with Bill Ranford, Kings goaltending coach
– Being a member of the Phoenix Roadrunners, LA’s IHL affiliate in the ’90s
– Facing off with one of the Buffalo Sabres in his first NHL game
– Playing at the old Forum in Inglewood
– Dustin Penner looking to blackmail him
– Coaching Scott Gomez during the NHL Lockout
– The New Jersey Rockin’ Rollers
– Memories of former teammate Mark Bavis
– His tweets, moving to LA and much more
Give it a listen using the player down below.
