On the ground in Minnesota

The Kings are en route to the team hotel in St. Paul and have been greeted by sleet and freezing rain that is expected to give way to snow showers later in the evening.

Some stories that I’ll address upon check-in:

-Jonathan Bernier was nominated for the 2013 Bill Masterton Memorial Trophy by the Los Angeles Chapter of the Professional Hockey Writers Association. The Masterton Trophy is awarded every year to a player who exhibits qualities of perseverance, sportsmanship and dedication to hockey. Bernier also won the Kings’ Community Service Award last season.

-The Eisbären Berlin, a team that has close ties to the Kings, won the DEL for the seventh time in nine years.

More on these stories to come.
