For those who haven’t heard, the Kings and Ducks will play a best-of-three preseason series this month. It kicks off tonight at Crypto Arena in Los Angeles. They’ll rematch again on Tuesday in Anaheim, followed by the event conclusion on Saturday back in Downtown LA.
With GM Rob Blake expected to send a large group of players down to the AHL on Monday, this will most likely be the last NHL exhibition action for several players. It should also bring the return of Sean Walker, who hasn’t played a game in nearly a year. He damaged his ACL and MCL on October 25, 2021 vs. the St. Louis Blues.
Earlier today, we took a look at the likelihood of him being ready for Opening Night in a few weeks — and the Kings other options on defense, if needed — in an article here.
