Willie Mitchell Phones It In; Screws Kings
Mitchell’s homecoming " LA Kings Insider
The L.A. series, I watched a little bit, casually, and then I started to get some phone calls from friends on the team who were penalty killers. [laughs] And assistant coach Rick Bowness, who does the penalty kill. They said, `Willie, what’s going on?’ Sometimes when you’re outside of the box, sometimes you see different things, so they were just calling me for some advice. So when that happened, I kind of got engaged again, trying to help out in that way. I couldn’t help out on the ice, but maybe my experience, and what I do on the penalty kill, could help the team.
