Summer Kings Live to air next week; community notes - LA Kings Insider

A quick heads up as the dog days of summer approach:

FOX Sports West is airing a summertime Kings Live that will debut on Tuesday, July 28 at 8:30 p.m. Alex Curry will host and Sean O’Donnell will serve as analyst for the 30-minute episode, which will also feature a new Coffee with Bob in which the Kings’ Hall of Fame announcer will sit down with Robyn Regehr, who reflects on his career and discusses his decision to retire.

In addition to Coffee with Bob, the show will also feature a recap of the Kings’ 2015 NHL Draft and the moves made by the club during the free agency period, which includes analysis of the Milan Lucic trade and a Curry-Lucic one-on-one interview in which the hulking power forward discusses joining the Kings. The Manchester Monarchs’ Calder Cup run will also be dissected; O’Donnell was there in Utica for the club’s clinching game and even joined LAKI for a special KingsVision Game 5 Preview.

Again, set a reminder: Kings Live, July 28, 8:30 p.m., FOX Sports West. Coverage will begin after the Angels-Astros game.
