MONTEREY PARK, CA — Whether you played the game at any level or are just a spectator, if you truck the kids to hockey practice very early in the morning or just lie on the living room couch and watch games on television, just about everyone touched by the game has a hockey dream or two.

In Living The Hockey Dream, author Brian Kennedy, Ph.D., a native of Montreal, an Associate Professor of English at Pasadena City College and a freelance hockey writer who covers the Los Angeles Kings and Anaheim Ducks for Inside Hockey, explores the hockey dreams—realized or not—of people involved with the game at all levels and all walks of life.

To be sure, this is not a book focusing on National Hockey League superstars and their glory days in the NHL—if that’s what you are looking for, prepare to be disappointed. Read more of this post

DRAFT COVERAGE: Frozen Royalty was at the headquarters of the Los Angeles Kings at the Toyota Sports Center in El Segundo, California to cover the first round of the 2009 National Hockey League Entry Draft; includes interviews with Kings President/General Manager Dean Lombardi, Kings scouts and their first round draft selection. Also includes audio interviews.


EL SEGUNDO, CA — If you passed out during the major snoozefest otherwise known as the first round of the 2009 National Hockey League Entry Draft, held on Friday evening in Montreal, chances are you were not alone.

Indeed, watching this year’s first round of the NHL draft was about as entertaining as watching paint dry. Maybe less.

Even for a hockey junkie like myself, I’m leaning towards the paint.

Last year, there were several trades during the first round, which obviously made it more interesting, including one involving the Los Angeles Kings to open the evening’s festivities.

This year, the Anaheim Ducks stole the spotlight early by sending star defenseman Chris Pronger and Ryan Dingle to the Philadelphia Flyers in exchange for forward Joffrey Lupul, defenseman Luca Sbisa, first round picks in 2009 and 2010 and a conditional third round pick in 2010 or 2011—a rather lopsided deal in favor of the Ducks.
