January 26 practice quotes: Darryl Sutter

On the entire All-Star experience: I thought Columbus – the city and the fans and the organization – did a great job. The game is almost the secondary part of it for the fans and the players. [Reporter: And the cannon. Are you still hearing that?] Yeah, they were late in some of their announcements. Like four-to-five minutes late. It was good, though. They did a really good job. It […]

Lombardi articulates decision to place Richards on waivers

Dean Lombardi, on when it became clear that Mike Richards would be placed on waivers, and that a trade wasn’t as likely: I don’t think it’s one point. It’s a process you work through, right? It’s not like it all of a sudden dawns on you. I mean, you’re starting to think about it and you work through the process. I mean, I think it’s fair to say that we […]

Shore “likely” to return tomorrow

One quick note: Early in the All-Star break, the Kings assigned center Nick Shore and goalie J.F. Berube to AHL-Manchester.

I received word from hockey operations this morning that Shore is likely to be recalled to the Kings, and that recall date will “most likely” be tomorrow. Because Martin Jones’ back spasms shouldn’t […]

Kopitar, Doughty All-Star Game photos, videos

Somewhere it would be important to note that Team Toews beat Anze Kopitar, Drew Doughty and Team Foligno 17-12 at Sunday’s All-Star Game, and we’ll eventually get to the post-game minutiae. But first, this moment, always: Chris Sutter leaning on Radim Vrbata and Alex Ovechkin and summoning Patrick Kane, forever. In the less important stuff, Anze Kopitar was held scoreless – he and Zemgus Girgensons were the only skaters on […]
