Parse ready to play

Six weeks after he injured his groin in the Kings' preseason opener, Scott Parse will get to make his season debut tomorrow night against Tampa Bay. Parse will make that debut not on the second line, where he was penciled in at the start of training camp, but on the first line with Anze Kopitar and ... Read More

Murray talks Doughty

I meant to throw this in with the earlier Drew Doughty item, but here's what Terry Murray said today about Doughty's return to the lineup, and the way the Kings' defense played without Doughty. Jack Johnson had seven assists in the six games without Doughty. MURRAY: ``No question you miss your to... Read More

Message for Muzzin

Jake Muzzin's time with the Kings ended, at least for now, today when he was assigned to Manchester to make room for Drew Doughty on the active roster. I think it's accurate to say that Muzzin didn't draw a lot of attention to himself, and for the most part that's a positive thing. He did not get ca... Read More

Doughty’s return

As (often) noted, Drew Doughty will be back in the Kings' lineup tomorrow after missing six consecutive games with concussion symptoms. Doughty will be back in his regular pairing with Willie Mitchell and, by all accounts, will play his regular amount of minutes. Doughty's return also means that the... Read More

Afternoon reading

My LAKings.com feature this week is on the line of Ryan Smyth, Jarret Stoll and Justin Williams, which is (tongue in cheek) referred to as the ``geezer'' line because it is the oldest line on the NHL's youngest team. It has also been highly successful so far, and today Terry Murray pointed to that l... Read More

Back at full strength

Drew Doughty is skating in his regular black practice jersey, and Alexei Ponikkarovsky is back after missing yesterday with flu symptoms. Not on the ice? Jake Muzzin, so you can probably guess what is coming soon... Brad Richardson has been the fourth-line staple so far, with the other four forwards... Read More

Rookie poll

This week's break in action has brought the ``junior countdown clock'' to a temporary halt. Brayden Schenn has played eight games and Kyle Cifford has played seven. Before each plays his 10th game, the Kings must decide whether to return them to their junior teams or keep them and burn a year from t... Read More

Parse’s big return

Some players, when injured, worry about losing their spot in the lineup. Scott Parse, it seems, got a promotion. Parse started training camp as the Kings' second-line left-winger, but injured his groin in the first preseason game and has been out of action since then. Parse has been practicing for a...

Thoughts on Loktionov

Andrei Loktionov left the Kings today, bound for Manchester, and it's probable that he will go back to playing center after a couple weeks trying life on the wing with the Kings. ``I would like to see him that position, but that's not my call,'' Terry Murray said today. It's an interesting tim... Read More
