As noted earlier, the NHL is now in it’s two-day Christmas break, in which no practices are allowed. The Kings will be back on the ice Monday at 10 a.m. for a morning skate in advance of that night’s home game against Phoenix (a 7 p.m. start).
It’s been a busy couple weeks — you might have noticed — so more than likely, I’ll be away for the next little bit. To all those who celebrate, a very Merry Christmas. To everyone, all the best wishes, and I hope you get to spend some time with loved ones no matter what you celebrate. Thanks, as always, for the support and good times here.
So, for now, I’ll hand it over to you. Anyone have any great hockey-related holiday memories? Skating on a lake after opening presents as a kid? I’d love to read them, so please share. For us Southern California kids, Christmas almost always meant 75-degree weather, which is still special in its own way, right? Enjoy, and be safe and happy.
