After I left the Kings, he started a show in New York. He followed me to New York! Kopitar: Yeah, well, he didn't follow you to Russia did he?[Frolov's lip quivers]Kopitar: Tom Selleck doesn't care about you! Tom Selleck NEVER cared about you!Frolov: You.... You..... You scruffy looking nerf herder! We are THROUGH as friends![Frolov storms out, probably never to be seen in America again]This vignette inspired by Tom Selleck's Wikipedia page, notably this line: Selleck is an avid ice hockey fan and has been seen attending Los Angeles Kings games at the Staples Center. He lists Anze Kopitar and Alexander Frolov as two of his favorite players.
