Covering the week, across the country

As noted earlier, it’s a big week in terms of the NHL offseason. The NHL Awards are taking place in Las Vegas on Wednesday — Dustin Brown is a finalist for the NHL Foundation Players Award — then there’s the NHL Draft in St. Paul on Friday and Saturday. Sometime this week, I’m also expecting the 2011-12 regular-season schedule to be released. Last I heard, the league was trying to iron out a few of the final details. As you might imagine, the late swap of Winnipeg for Atlanta caused a couple wrinkles.

So, stay tuned here and at LAKings.com for the latest. Heidi Androl will be in Las Vegas for the awards ceremony, while Daryl Evans and the KingsVision crew will be in Minnesota filing video reports and Twitter updates (@LAKings). And, of course, on the blog we’ll have coverage of it all, so it should be a fun week…
