LA Kings Looking For Kevin Westgarth To Be An Upgrade As Enforcer

EL SEGUNDO, CA — The Los Angeles Kings rid themselves of the sloth-like skating and one-bad-penalty-after-another performances by left wing enforcer Raitis Ivanans when they passed on signing him to a new contract this past summer.

That left the enforcer spot open, and it is all but a foregone conclusion that 6-4, 228-pound right wing Kevin Westgarth will be promoted from the Manchester Monarchs of the American Hockey League, the Kings’ primary minor league affiliate. Read more of this post

Los Angeles Kings: A Mixed Bag After Two Games

LOS ANGELES — Two games into the 2009-10 season, the Los Angeles Kings are right where most everyone expected them to be, sporting a 1-1-0 record.

One can imagine Los Angeles Kings head coach Terry Murray sitting in the coaches room with a big smile on his face tonight.

Indeed, after a less-than-lackluster effort in a 2-1 loss to the Phoenix Coyotes at Staples Center on Friday night, the Kings, from the players to the coaches, all talked about coming to the rink prepared to play, both mentally and physically and putting in a solid, sixty-minute effort, something they failed to do on Friday night.

Their poor effort was a sore spot for them and they responded with the solid, intense, sixty-minute effort they were looking for in a 4-0 shutout victory over those same Phoenix Coyotes, this time in front of a disappointed crowd of 16,199 fans at Jobing.com Arena in Glendale, Arizona on Saturday night.
