EL SEGUNDO, CA — Heading into Thursday’s game against the Buffalo Sabres (7:30 PM PDT, Staples Center), the Los Angeles Kings got some much-needed good news, that defenseman Jake Muzzin had been cleared to play by doctors after being examined on October 21.

Muzzin, who has not played yet this season, was suffering from an upper body injury.

“It’s exciting,” he said. “I’m good to go. I got cleared, and I’m excited for tomorrow night. It’s not 100 percent, but it’s good to go.”

EL SEGUNDO, CA — The Los Angeles Kings have finished their 2014-15 pre-season schedule, they have closed up shop on training camp, and after all the ice chips settled, there will be no surprises whatsoever on their 2014-15 opening night roster, which will be released later today.

In fact, the only real “question,” if you can call it that, was whether or not two young players, left wing/center Andy Andreoff and defenseman Brayden McNabb, would make the big club’s roster out of training camp.

But as previously reported in this space, both were a lock to make the Kings’ opening night roster, making the “question” pretty much a moot point.

EL SEGUNDO, CA — While the Los Angeles Kings held their annual HockeyFest event back on September 14, 2014, at the Toyota Sports Center in El Segundo, California, LA Kings Insider Jon Rosen and I had the opportunity to sit down with President/General Manager Dean Lombardi in his new office for what turned out to be about a 15-minute interview.

That interview spawned a three-part series of stories here on Frozen Royalty that, hopefully, you’ve already read about Lombardi’s role in the Kings’s recent success. If you take him at his word, he had nothing to do with it. Of course, that could not be farther from the truth, so yours truly reviewed what his plan was when he first joined the franchise, and then examined how it all turned out.

EL SEGUNDO, CA — On September 19, the first day on the ice during their 2014 training camp, the Los Angeles Kings were missing one notable player and had several others operating at less than 100 percent.

Missing in action from the morning session was defenseman Drew Doughty, who suffered an upper body injury during the off-season.

Lisa Dillman of the Los Angeles Times reported seeing Doughty skating just prior to training camp at the Toyota Sports Center in El Segundo, California (Kings practice facility), so it would appear that the injury is not serious.

Center Jarret Stoll and left wing Kyle Clifford skated during training camp drills after undergoing off-season hip and wrist surgeries, respectively.
