San Jose GM Doug Wilson Tries To Pull Another Fast One In Remarks About LA Kings’ Dustin Brown

COMMENTARY: San Jose Sharks general manager Doug Wilson stirred the pot last night, during his team’s game against the Colorado Avalanche, citing his disappointment with Los Angeles Kings forward Dustin Brown, and the Kings organization, for not expressing concern for injured Sharks forward Tomas Hertl. But why did Wilson make those remarks publicly, rather than through the usual league back channels? Why did he go to the media with his remarks? What was Wilson trying to accomplish? Frozen Royalty just might have the answer…

LOS ANGELES — According to multiple reports out of San Jose, on December 23, during their game against the Colorado Avalanche, San Jose Sharks general manager Doug Wilson approached the media who cover the team on a regular basis during the second intermission, and talked about his disappointment that Los Angeles Kings forward Dustin Brown has not expressed concern for the welfare of Sharks rookie forward Tomas Hertl, nor has anyone else from the Kings organization.

To review, Brown and Hertl collided in the neutral zone late in the first period during a game at Staples Center on December 19. The result was knee-on-knee contact, with Hertl suffering a right knee injury that will sideline him for at least one month, and could require surgery.

Did San Jose Sharks GM Doug Wilson Try To Pull A Fast One In Statement On Torres Suspension?

COMMENTARY: Over the last few weeks, the Los Angeles Kings have been involved in two incidents involving blows to the head of a player. Both times, the player who was hit suffered an injury, and in each case, a player was suspended. Perhaps even worse, both incidents have shined a bright light on the fact that it isn’t just fans who don’t know the rules, but apparently, National Hockey League players, coaches and general managers don’t either, and the fault for that falls squarely on the shoulders of the NHL.

LOS ANGELES AND EL SEGUNDO, CA — Almost one month ago, Los Angeles Kings winger Dustin Brown was suspended two games, without pay, for elbowing Minnesota Wild forward Jason Pominville at 10:04 of the second period in a game at Minnesota on April 23, a 2-1 Wild victory.

No penalty was called on the play.

Just prior to, and immediately after the decision by National Hockey League Senior Vice President of Player Safety Brendan Shanahan was announced, the vast majority of Kings fans were up in arms about the decision, claiming it was a clean hit, and that Brown was a victim of circumstance because of Pominville’s positioning as he approached Brown (slightly low).
