EL SEGUNDO, CA — On September 14, 2014, despite the scorching heat, the Los Angeles Kings hosted their annual HockeyFest at the Toyota Sports Center in El Segundo, California.

Over 1,500 fans were estimated to have attended the event where fans, who lined up as early as 3:45 AM, got the opportunity to get a photograph with the Stanely Cup, hear from team executives and coaches about what was going on with the team and where it is headed, the ever-popular Kids Press Conference, games and other activities for children, a hockey clinic for children, and much more.

LOS ANGELES — For 23-year old left wing/center prospect Andy Andreoff, if the Los Angeles Kings have their way, his time is now, or at least, in a few weeks.

“His contract situation has a lot to do with that, in that he would [have to clear] waivers—there would be 29 teams lined up to get ahold of him,” said Kings assistant general manager Rob Blake. “It’s a big summer for him.

LOS ANGELES — The Los Angeles Kings had barely begun their summer-long celebration after winning the 2014 Stanley Cup Championship when it was learned that veteran defenseman Willie Mitchell would not be re-signed because the Kings would not be able to fit him in under the salary cap.

While Mitchell was moving across the country to Florida, the Kings signed veteran defenseman Matt Greene to a four-year contract extension on June 24, 2014. They also signed Jeff Schultz to a two-year deal on June 30—their top six defenseman positions would appear to be set.

But wait…there’s more.

Down on the farm, a little over 3,000 miles away, defenseman prospect Brayden McNabb was playing for the Manchester Monarchs of the American Hockey League after the Kings acquired him on March 5, 2014, along with a second round pick, in the 2014 and 2015 National Hockey League Drafts, from the Buffalo Sabres, in exchange for left wing/defenseman Nicolas Deslauriers and right wing prospect Hudson Fasching.
