LOS ANGELES AND EL SEGUNDO, CA — Goalie Gate, as one member of the local media has dubbed it, took a another twist after the Los Angeles Kings wrapped up their practice on December 8.

But rookie Martin Jones got the call instead, starting his second consecutive game—the first two games of his National Hockey League career—earning a 3-0 shutout victory.

ANAHEIM AND EL SEGUNDO, CA — After earning his first National Hockey League win in his NHL debut, a 3-2 shootout victory over the Anaheim Ducks at Honda Center in Anaheim on December 3, rookie goaltender Martin Jones remained the center of attention in the Los Angeles Kings’ dressing room after practice on December 5.

Jones spoke with the local media in greater detail about his first NHL game.

EL SEGUNDO, CA — As we move into the seventh day of the Los Angeles Kings 2013 Training Camp, only four of the team’s defensemen are guaranteed to be in the opening night lineup in a few weeks.

Drew Doughty, Matt Greene, Robyn Regher, and Slava Voynov are locks to be patrolling the Kings blue line come opening night. That leaves three or four roster spots for players such as Keaton Ellerby, Alec Martinez, and Jake Muzzin to battle each other for.

Two players trying to make comebacks of sorts are also in the mix, including veteran defenseman Willie Mitchell, who is working his way back into shape after sitting out for more than a year due to two surgical procedures on his knee.
