Off-Day Watch 1/9: No the Kings don’t play tonight
I sure thought they did, though.
I’ve got nothing good this morning, so here’s a very nice, soft picture of Jeff Carter and his son. Thanks for the blessed content, Dan Carcillo.
I got to hang out with my good friend & former landlord @JeffCarter_77 yesterday— Daniel Carcillo (@CarBombBoom13) January 9, 2019

Nice shoot-out goal here from prospect Aidan Dudas, as well as some strong two-way play resulting in a goal for him:
Time for your @PeninsulaFord plays of the week! We've got a slick move from Cade Robinson, and two from Dudas including maybe the best two way effort of the season from the @LAKings prospect. #HearTheSound pic.twitter.com/vGVMBIoboP— Owen Sound Attack (@AttackOHL) January 7, 2019

Three games to choose from tonight, including your nationally televised option, featuring the Nashville Predators against the Chicago Blackhawks (5:00 pm Pacific, NBCSN).
For an option closer to home, the Ottawa Senators are in Anaheim to take on the Ducks. The Senators face the Kings tomorrow, so now’s your chance to do some advance scouting. (Spoilers: they’re bad, too.) That game starts at 7:00 pm Pacific and airs on Prime.
