The quest for the…crate?

In case anyone thinks there is no fun to be had during a tough hockey season, a very helpful reader named Philip passed this along. A few of the Kings have been participating in an informal 4-on-4 post-practice “tournament,” and it concluded yesterday with the team of Willie Mitchell, Davis Drewiske, Wayne Simmonds and Ryan Smyth getting the better of Kyle Clifford, Trevor Lewis, Brad Richardson and Kevin Westgarth. In search of a trophy to celebrate the win, Mitchell found two crates, usually used to store practice pucks, and the team posed at center ice as Philip got the shot of the players and their prize. “We’re each going to spend a day with it,” Mitchell said.
