EL SEGUNDO, CA — Veteran defenseman Willie Mitchell, a key member of the Los Angeles Kings’ 2012 and 2014 Stanley Cup Championship teams, left the Kings after last season because the team could not fit him under the salary cap.

Mitchell ended up switching coasts, signing a two-year contract with the Florida Panthers, a deal that has a $4,250,000 salary cap hit, a figure that was nowhere close to what the Kings could fit under their salary cap.

So far, the move east has been good for Mitchell.

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 — One day after defenseman Slava Voynov was arrested by Redondo Beach Police on suspicion of violating California Penal Code section 273.5(a)-Domestic Violence, the Los Angeles Kings held a routine practice.

In fact, the only way one could tell something was amiss was the size of the media contingent present—it was the kind of media presence the Kings only get during the playoffs.

Indeed, reporters and camera crews from most of the local television news outlets joined the usual reporters who cover the team to cover the Voynov story and how his situation would affect the team.

The practice session, which looked no different from any other non-game day full practice for the Kings, was an indication that they are going to go about their business as they always do.
