EL SEGUNDO, CA — On March 2, 2015, a day when 24 trades involving 43 players were made in the National Hockey League, the Los Angeles Kings decided to stand pat, having already acquired veteran defenseman Andrej Sekera on February 25, in exchange for a conditional first round draft pick and defenseman prospect Roland McKeown.

Frozen Royalty Video: Greene, Brown, Carter and Sutter After LA Kings Drop 4-2 Decision at Anaheim

ANAHEIM, CA — For the second consecutive game, the Los Angeles Kings were sloppy with the puck, and ended up spending a lot of time in their own zone. The result: a come-from-ahead 4-2 loss to the Anaheim Ducks at Honda Center in Anaheim on February 27.

The Kings took a 2-0 lead into the third period, but that lead was deceiving, as it was the Ducks who were in control, with the exception of the final ten minutes of the first period.

In the third, the Ducks capitalized on turnovers and sloppy play by the Kings to score four unanswered goals (the fourth goal was an empty-net goal) to secure the win.

LOS ANGELES — For veteran defenseman Andrej Sekera, if being traded wasn’t enough, due to weather conditions, he had to endure flight delays getting out of Raleigh, North Carolina.

Sekera managed to make it to Los Angeles on February 26, only later than either he, or his new team, the Los Angeles Kings, had originally planned.

After undergoing hours of physical examinations, Sekera finally met with the media after the first period of his new team’s game against the Ottawa Senators at Staples Center in Los Angeles that evening.

Sekera, who did not play in the game, said that he got a phone call at home, notifying him of the trade.

“I had a day off, so I was sitting on my couch, watching TV, and I got a phone call that I was traded,” he said. “I was happy, going to a great organization, a club that has had success in the last couple of years, and belongs [in] the top of the league.”
