Darryl Sutter opted for an off-ice workout for the Kings today, and no on-ice work. The team will practice at 10 a.m. tomorrow in El Segundo. The only player on the ice this morning was Simon Gagne, who went through a skating and drills session with Bernie Nicholls. Gagne said he’s been skating every day and feels good, but it’s still not known when/if he might be able to return from his concussion. Incidentally, I saw Gagne hit the net at least eight consecutive times with one-timers from the right circle. I’m not sure if I have seen that in any Kings practice/game this season. Perhaps Gagne is more ready than he realizes. More notes and quotes to come, including Sutter’s thoughts on the whether the trade deadline is a distraction for players.
