Camp groups/schedule

The player groups for the first three days of Kings training camp have been announced. Click below to check them out, as well as a re-posting of the schedule for the first three days. It’s always interesting to see which players are put together in the early days of training camp. Sometimes it means something, sometimes it means nothing. In this case, Anze Kopitar and Ryan Smyth are in a group together, but with Dustin Brown, not Justin Williams. Scott Parse and Jarret Stoll are with Williams. Not surprisingly, Michal Handzus, Alexei Ponikarovsky and Wayne Simmonds are together. Then you have potential combinations such as Richardson-Lewis-Westgarth and Clifford-Schenn-Moller and Clune-Elkins/Loktionov-Kozun/Holloway to name a couple. On the defensive side, there’s one group with Drew Doughty and Willie Mitchell, one with Jack Johnson and Rob Scuderi and one with Davis Drewiske, Peter Harrold and Thomas Hickey. Very interesting!
