February 22 practice notes

I’ll have some steady content on the blog this afternoon, so keep checking back as I continue to transcribe some quotes in preparation for tomorrow’s matinee against Colorado.

Some notes from practice:

-Alec Martinez, out since February 11 with an upper-body injury, has been skating all week at Toyota Sports Center. He has been progressing but has not yet rejoined his teammates for regular practice. More to come.

-I chatted with Ian Laperriere for 10 minutes in advance of Legends Night tomorrow afternoon, and he spoke of being extremely honored and humbled by the team’s recognition of his play. I’ll post my discussion with him shortly after posting today’s practice quotes.

-Those who played in Manchester with Thomas Hickey spoke of their pride in the former Kings prospect’s first career goal, which was an overtime game-winner for the Islanders in Montreal last night.

Those stories, and lots more, to come…
