Best wishes to Bernie Nicholls, whose mother is scheduled to undergo heart surgery. Nicholls had been scheduled to participate in the Kings’ “Hockey Fest” on Sept. 11 in El Segundo, but former Kings defenseman Jay Wells has been added to the event and will participate in the “Life of a King” panel with Jim Fox, Luc Robitaille and Marty McSorley. The Kings also announced that Nick Nickson will host a panel called “Winning Culture” with current Kings who have played in the Stanley Cup Finals. Those panels, plus the “State of the Kings” panel with management, the “Kids Press Conference” and a pep rally with players highlight the event, which will also include fundraising activities for organizations related to 9/11.
