EL SEGUNDO, CA — There was a relatively large media horde at the Toyota Sports Center in El Segundo, California today to take in the Los Angeles Kings’ optional skate, and to interview the players and head coach Darryl Sutter.

KingsVision has several interviews available, including videos with Colin Fraser, Jordan Nolan, Brad Richardson and Sutter. But FrozenRoyaltyNHL on YouTube is your only source for the full, 14-minute-plus interview with Sutter, along with the media interview with Anze Kopitar.

Frozen Royalty Video: LA Kings Edged In Shootout At Anaheim, 4-3

ANAHEIM, CA — Corey Perry scored a breakaway goal and another in the shootout to lead the Anaheim Ducks to a 4-3 win over the Los Angeles Kings in front of a standing-room only crowd of 18,494 fans at Honda Center in Anaheim on April 7.

Ducks forwards Kyle Palmieri opened the scoring at 2:54 of the first period after Kings defenseman Robyn Regehr was unable to clear the zone along the left wing boards. Ducks forward Matt Beleskey got the puck to Palmieri, who skated past Kings left wing Jordan Nolan, who got caught flat-footed. Palmieri went in alone on Kings goaltender Jonathan Bernier, who made the initial save. But the puck hit Palmieri’s skate, and bounced into the net.

EL SEGUNDO, CA — Despite being acquired by the Los Angeles Kings just five days ago, defenseman Keaton Ellerby already seems like a Southern California native, at least a little bit, anyway.

“I went down for lunch in Hermosa [Beach] with [defenseman Jake] Muzzin and [right wing Jordan] Nolan, and then just waited around,” Ellerby said, describing what he did during the Kings’ day off on February 12. “I picked up some sushi last night, checked the beach out…”

Sounds a lot like what the locals might do on a day off, right? Not so fast, at least, not in this case, anyway.

“I toured around a little bit yesterday,” said Ellerby. “It’s going to take awhile to get used to everything, and all traffic, stuff like that.”

Ellerby started the day off getting some much needed extra rest.

“I kind of slept in,” said the 24-year-old, 6-5, 217-pound native of Strathmore, Alberta. “I came in, and did the whole tour of the [Kings practice] facility yesterday.”

After that, it was time to get the lay of the land…

For LA Kings GM Dean Lombardi, “Constructive Paranoia” Is Much More Than A Catchphrase

and the Los Angeles Kings

EL SEGUNDO, CA — A little over six years ago, when Dean Lombardi took over as President/General Manager of the Los Angeles Kings, the team was, for all intents and purposes, a mess, both on the ice and off.

Lombardi’s plan, to tear down the team completely and rebuild it through the draft, not to mention completely changing the culture of organization, generated significant support from fans.

But Lombardi also drew the ire of many detractors who claimed that a championship team could not be built without bringing in established stars, and as the team struggled and failed to make the playoffs in his first three season at the helm, the numbers of his detractors seemed to grow exponentially, and their voices grew louder and louder.
