Slava Voynov Returning to Russia

Slava Voynov is going back to Russia. The Los Angeles Kings defenceman played just six games with the team last season before he was arrested on domestic violence charges. He pleaded no contest to a misdemeanour count of “corporal injury to a spouse” on July 2 and was sentenced to 90 days in jail along […]

Mike Richards Charged with Illegal Possession of a Controlled Substance

The Mike Richards saga has taken yet another turn. The former Los Angeles Kings forward has been charged with illegal possession of a controlled substance.

2015-2016 Season Preview: Los Angeles Kings

The Los Angeles Kings proved to be human after all in 2014-2015, coming up short and missing the post-season for the first time in six years. They posted a 40-27-15 record and managed 95 points, but they were still out of the running despite being just two points back on the playoff-bound Calgary Flames. The […]

Los Angeles Kings Terminate Mike Richards’ Contract

Los Angeles Falls Short, Misses Playoffs

It’s hard to believe, but the Los Angeles Kings will not be returning to the post-season. The defending Stanley Cup champions had their playoff hopes extinguished on Thursday night after losing to the Calgary Flames by a final score of 3-1. The Flames, by the way, are in. This is the first time the defending […]

Kings Call Up Mike Richards

In the minds of many, it was only a matter of time before Mike Richards would find himself back in the National Hockey League. Dumped to the AHL’s Manchester Monarchs after clearing waivers back in January, the centre and his massive 12-year contract became a tale of disappointment and frustration. But now the Kings have […]

What’s the Plan for the Los Angeles Kings?

The Los Angeles Kings, the defending Stanley Cup champions, find themselves in an interesting position right now. They sit with a 24-18-12 record in 54 games, with only seven wins on the road. The only team with fewer road wins is the Buffalo Sabres. The playoffs aren’t a sure thing, obviously, and that puts Dean […]
