AUDIO: Listen to newly-acquired Los Angeles Kings defenseman Andrej Sekera’s first interview with the local media.
LOS ANGELES — For veteran defenseman Andrej Sekera, if being traded wasn’t enough, due to weather conditions, he had to endure flight delays getting out of Raleigh, North Carolina.
Sekera managed to make it to Los Angeles on February 26, only later than either he, or his new team, the Los Angeles Kings, had originally planned.
After undergoing hours of physical examinations, Sekera finally met with the media after the first period of his new team’s game against the Ottawa Senators at Staples Center in Los Angeles that evening.
Sekera, who did not play in the game, said that he got a phone call at home, notifying him of the trade.
“I had a day off, so I was sitting on my couch, watching TV, and I got a phone call that I was traded,” he said. “I was happy, going to a great organization, a club that has had success in the last couple of years, and belongs [in] the top of the league.”
