This is a well-earned nomination for a player beloved by all.
Shanahan refutes the "shoulder-to-shoulder" defense, and offers a physics lesson to boot. But can Torres appeal under the new CBA?
Mark your calendars: the NHL has confirmed the outdoor Kings-Ducks matchup at Dodger Stadium, and a date and time have been set. The event will be part of the 2014 Coors Light NHL Stadium Series.
As long as a player isn't injured, you'll probably get off. How about the NHL tries punishing reckless play whether there's injury or not?
The length of the suspension was likely because Pominville left the game injured. What will the top six look like now?
If suspended, it would be for the first time in Brown's career. We break down the hit and some rather heated reactions to it.
Greene has been skating as part of his recovery from back surgery, and will travel with the team. Can the Kings get him back before the regular season ends? And who should his partner be?
Today, we're looking back at the Cup and at yesterday's thriller in the OC, and looking forward to the return of Dustin Penner and a hockey game at Dodger Stadium. Plus, are the Kings lucky, or good? (You probably know the answer already.)
Yesterday we learned that Willie Mitchell's knee had to be scoped, and he was done for the season. Although the team is waiting for more information, Lombardi began to discuss the possibility he may not return next year.
The Kings have been dealing with the loss of two veteran stay-at-home defensemen for months. Will this change how Lombardi approaches the trade deadline?
The goalie's absence from the team briefly added to the trade deadline rumor storm, but Bernier is away for a personal reason.
Toffoli racked up 48 points in 55 games with Manchester. He's been a healthy scratch three times since being called up, but he'll get his shot tonight on the second line, with Richards and Carter. Penner moves to the fourth line, replacing Nolan.
The Kings' top prospect had been thriving in his first season in the AHL, but the timing of this call-up raises questions. Mike Richards appeared to be shaken up after a Tim Jackman hit, but had returned to play in the third period.
Gagne had been a healthy scratch for over a week, but the move is still somewhat surprising. In exchange, the Kings receive a conditional 4th round pick.
With the Kings trying to cope with the losses of both Willie Mitchell and Matt Greene, Lombardi added another big stay-at-home defenseman to the roster -- 24-year-old Keaton Ellerby. Here's a first look at his career stats and scouting report.
The 22-year-old center, who had 14 points in 57 career games with Los Angeles, is traded to New Jersey for a fifth-round pick. Not the ending that many expected for one of the most talented prospects in the Kings' organization.
Shanahan will call Dubinsky today for last night's boarding of Rob Scuderi. I take issue with Dubinsky apologists, but have no idea what to expect from the league. You make the call: was the hit worthy of punishment?
Willie Mitchell has been medically cleared for several days, but he hasn't returned to action. That's making Darryl Sutter lash out in frustration, but so far, the decision remains up to the player. His latest MRI showed that his knee had no setback.
