Notebook: Kings add player to roster, while Ducks still finalize theirs

I think it's safe to say Jeff Carter will make the team. Carter scored a hat trick in the Kings' 4-2 preseason win over the Ducks, Sunday night at the Honda Center, and it looks as though the line with him and the kids, Tyler Toffoli and Tanner Pearson, is still clicking as much as it did in the postseason.  It wasn't too hard, he said, it was Toffoli and Pearson who...

Jeff Carter Notches Hat Trick In Preseason Game Against Ducks (Video)

It was the Jeff Carter show Sunday night in the Los Angeles Kings’ preseason match against the Anaheim Ducks. Carter scored three of the Kings’ four goals to earn himself a hat trick. Kings’ defenseman Robyn Regehr opened up the scoring, but Carter plastered his name all over the score sheet after that, scoring a goal in each period. Last season Carter, 29, had 27 regular...

Pacific Division Predictions

With the season fast approaching, I figure that now is a good time to start my pre-season predictions.  I will begin today in the Pacific Division. 1. Los Angeles Kings - The Kings are the most talented of the teams in this division.  Should they fail to win the division it is likely due to a Stanley Cup hangover.  They may not be as fresh as any other team having had a shorter...

Kings to take net management one game at a time

Questions about goalies and playing time often prompt an amusing baseball reference or two from Kings Coach Darryl Sutter, letting out his inner manager for a minute. Not this time. Sutter, who once declared there would be "no pitching rotation" involving his top two goalies, instead traveled down memory lane when asked about the handling of his No. 1 goalie, Jonathan...

Another Cup On Marian Gaborik’s Mind

from Nicholas J. Cotsonika of Yahoo, Gaborik made $7.5 million each of the past five seasons. But no one makes that much in L.A. – defenseman Drew Doughty’s average salary is $7 million and center Anze Kopitar’s is $6.8 million – and the Kings also wanted to re-sign defenseman Matt Greene under the salary cap. Gaborik’s average salary will be $4.875 million. ...

Kings' Toffoli feels like a veteran after winning Stanley Cup

Tyler Toffoli said it with a serious look on his face. "We started slow and that was to be expected with a lot of young players in the lineup," the Los Angeles Kings' center said. Toffoli, all of 22 years, is awfully young himself. Younger than some of the guys he referred to when talking about Thursday's preseason game. He only seems like a veteran and he's...

Kings give vial of ice from Stanley Cup Final to season ticket holders

The Los Angeles Kings were the last ones standing when the 2013-2014 NHL season ended, as they captured their second Stanley Cup in three years. With training camps underway, 29 other teams are setting their sights on ending the upcoming season the way Los Angeles did this past June. Understandably, Kings fans are excited for […]

Kings return to camp: Three burning questions as champs try to repeat

The defending Stanley Cup Champs returned to the ice Friday at the Toyota Sports Center as training camp for the 2014-2015 season officially opened. The Los Angeles Kings return nearly the entire roster from their spring playoff run -- the only one who wasn't re-signed was defenseman Willie Mitchell.  There's only one big question that they must answer: Can they become the...

2014-15 Los Angeles Kings Preview: Dynasty Brewing In L.A.?

The Kings’ next challenge is to become the first repeat champion since the 1997-98 Detroit Red Wings. Los Angeles came closer to repeating than many of the recent champions in 2012-13...

The role of the captain in NHL has changed

With the announcement by the Montreal Canadiens Tuesday that there would be no team captain, with four alternates acting as a pseudo-captain’s committee instead, there was a bit of talk about just what the Canadiens were doing. How could they go without a captain, especially given their rich history of leaders? How can a team go forward without a clearly defined leader? You name...

According to Ryan Dadoun of NBC Sports, Los Angeles Kings goaltender Jonathan Quick is still recovering from his wrist surgery, and might not be able to start playing just yet.  Quick's surgery took place back in June, and was only expected to take 10-12 weeks to recover.
