EL SEGUNDO, CA — When you talk to hockey players, you often hear them mention the “little things” that are part of their games, and it becomes apparent very quickly that those little things add up to something pretty big for each player.
For Los Angeles Kings backup goaltender Jhonas Enroth, one of those little things has turned out to be a pretty big thing on its own merits, and it has contributed to his stellar play in the two games he’s started this season, the latest being a 3-0 shutout victory on November 3 at St. Louis.
Enroth also beat the San Jose Sharks in San Jose on October 22.
In those two games, the 27-year-old native of Stockholm, Sweden has earned a 2-0 record, with an 0.50 goals-against average, a .984 save percentage, and as mentioned earlier, one shutout. In all, Enroth has faced 64 shots this season, allowing one goal.
