What is the state of the competition on defense?

While recent years may have elicited a collection of players vying for one or two open spots on a roster that had more or less been solidified, this fall features some good, hardened, old fashioned competition at Kings training camp. As it stands, there are four players who don’t have to worry at all about apartment hunting in Ontario. Drew Doughty, Jake Muzzin, Alec Martinez and Brayden McNabb will play for this year’s team, barring any unforeseen and unlikely player movement away from a unit that will be looking to add depth, not subtract from it. That leaves six players […]

September 26 postgame quotes: Payne, King, Greene, Forbort

Davis Payne, on what he looks for in a first preseason game, and whether he saw it: Well, you’re looking for lots of things. You’re looking for guys to step into roles and claim a spot, claim a responsibility on the team, and we saw some of that, and we saw some things that as a group we know we’re trying to claim our spot as a team as well, and you can’t win on the road and you can’t win too many times when you’re giving up five. We’ve got some things to clean up. Payne, on whether he […]

Notebook: Roster moves, Gaborik, Bissonnette, Greene

ROSTER MOVES The Kings made several roster moves on Monday, returning defensemen Kale Clague to WHL-Brandon, Jacob Friend to OHL-Owen Sound and Jacob Moverare to OHL-Mississauga, and forward Matt Schmalz to OHL-Owen Sound. Schmalz, who as a 20-year-old out of major junior hockey was eligible to play in either the OHL or AHL, got caught up in a numbers game given the number of players available to Reign Head Coach Mike Stothers. Clague is expected to miss some time upon his return to Manitoba after suffering a lower-body injury during the second rookie game against Arizona last week. Forward Miles […]
