Kings Of the Podcast Ep. 16.3 with Tony Granato

We’re inside of 48 hours of the 2020 World Junior Championships kicking off in the Czech Republic and we have two huge Kings of the Podcast episodes to share with you during the wait. First up, we talk with former Kings player and current Wisconsin Badger coach, Tony Granato. Not only is he the current caretaker of LA’s 2019 first round selection, forward Alex Turcotte, he also has a bevy of stories to share and we’re sure you’ll enjoy his insight.

Among the many topics covered on this show are:

– Granato on coaching in today’s game, Turcotte, 2020 draft eligible players, etc.
– A recap of the Kings-Blues game (sorry, fans!)
– Lap around the NHL, looking at a few key story lines
– Jersey Numerology on Granato’s No. 21
– World Junior Championships, with a focus on the nine Kings prospects
– Reign Report
– A bonus segment with Andy Lassner
– More hockey information you need to know, and will share with your friends at dinner

When you’re done listing, go back and check out our 2015 interview with Granato, where he talked in-depth about the Kings 1993 Stanley Cup Final team (link here). We also have a great article up with Barry Melrose, where he shares comments about his former LA players – like this one on Granato:

“When Tony played against Ulf Samuelsson, at the end of the night it was like 46 slashes to 45 slashes. Which one could slash each other the most? Tony was great, a great competitor. One of my favorite guys.”
