Wednesday practice; new “addition”
Well, there’s an interesting addition on the ice. Bernie Nicholls is on the ice, looking very much like a coach, although at this point the Kings — via team spokesperson — aren’t calling him a coach. Why is he here? Good question. Hopefully Darryl Sutter will answer it after practice. Sutter and Nicholls have a history in Chicago and San Jose. Assistant coaches John Stevens, Jamie Kompon and Bill Ranford are also participating in practice.
Slava Voynov is not practicing. Otherwise, no changes to the practice group. More updates to come…
[UPDATE: Officially, the Kings are saying Nicholls is "in L.A. for a couple days" and helping out Sutter, as he previously did in San Jose. A spokesperson reiterated that Nicholls is not a new coach.]
