The Guidance Center provides comprehensive mental health treatment to the community’s most disadvantaged children and their families struggling with mental illness and abuse, leading them toward a positive and productive future. The Guidance Center also envisions a community where all children have the help they need to be healthy and happy.

LOS ANGELES — Since the Los Angeles Kings won the Stanley Cup for the first time in the 45-year history of the franchise on June 11, 2012, the storied trophy has been on a whirlwind tour.

From Kings team/staff parties that same night, to the Championship Parade and Rally on June 14, to Las Vegas, Venice Beach, back to Las Vegas for the National Hockey League Awards, to Pittsburgh for the 2012 NHL Entry Draft, back to Southern California’s Hermosa Beach, a party hosted by Hall of Fame broadcaster Bob Miller…you get the idea.

The Stanley Cup will continue to have a heavy travel schedule for the rest of the summer. But odds are that it will not have a more meaningful stop than it did on June 28, when it lifted the Read more of this post

Frozen Royalty Audio: LA Kings Tame The Wild, 5-2; Jim Fox Honored During Second Intermission – Video

LOS ANGELES — Five different players scored goals in the first and second periods to lead the Los Angeles Kings to an easy 5-2 win over the Minnesota Wild in front of a sell-out crowd of 18,118 fans at Staples Center on November 12.

Colin Fraser opened the scoring at 2:49 of the first period, netting his first goal of the season, and his first ever with the Kings. The game was scoreless for the remainder of the period, but the Kings exploded for four goals in the second period by Alec Martinez, Dustin Brown, Simon Gagne and Matt Greene, giving the Kings a 5-0 lead heading into the third period.

A twelve-story series on just about any topic requires a considerable amount of source material to draw from, and that is exactly what Los Angeles Kings retired head athletic trainer Pete Demers provided for the series of stories on his 41-year career in professional hockey, 37 in the Kings organization, that was completed on July 29, 2011.

Indeed, I sat down with Demers in three separate sessions—two in late December 2010, and one in early January 2011. In the end, we talked for more than four-and-a-half hours (4:37:52, to be exact), with Demers sharing story after story, along with unique insights about hockey, and about the work of the athletic trainer that so few know about.

It was fascinating, funny, and highly entertaining.

Former Kings players and coaches also shared their thoughts about Demers, along with some stories involving him. Some are quite amusing. Read more of this post
