Misc. notes

A couple notes…

– Unless the Kings reach agreement on a contract with Brad Richardson in the next week, he will have his arbitration hearing on July 23 in Toronto.

– Tickets for the Kings’ “Hockey Fest,” to be held Sept. 11 at the Toyota Sports Center in El Segundo, go on sale today, and 2,000 tickets are available. Tickets cost $15 for Kings season-ticket members, and Partial Plan and Group Leaders and are available at 1-888-KINGS-LA (1-888-54647-52). Tickets for the public are $20 and are available at LAKings.com/hockeyfest2010. The Kings have said that the event “will feature special Q&A and autograph sessions with Kings players, coaches, alumni and hockey dignitaries, in addition to Kings merchandise – including merchandise discounted at 40 percent — and hockey memorabilia being available,” with more details to be announced later.

– The Hockey News has a nice feature on Kings goalie prospect Jeff Zatkoff…
