Lecavalier Traded to Los Angeles Kings

Vincent Lecavalier is about to get another chance. The veteran centre is on his way to the Los Angeles Kings along with defenceman Luke Schenn after a trade on Wednesday.

Anze Kopitar and the Very Slow Start

Much has been made about the struggles of Los Angeles Kings forward Anze Kopitar. With just 10 points in 20 games, the 28-year-old Slovakian seems to be underperforming thus far. He did pick up two goals against the Carolina Hurricanes on Sunday night, but it’s still hard to say that his stats are indicative of […]

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 […]

NHLPA Files Grievance Over Richards’ Contract Termination

The Mike Richards saga continues. The NHLPA filed a grievance with the Los Angeles Kings on Monday, contesting the termination of his contract in June of this year. We reported on that termination, which stemmed from a myriad of issues. What we do know is that Richards had five years left on his initial 12 […]

Los Angeles Kings Terminate Mike Richards’ Contract
