Los Angeles Kings Terminate Mike Richards’ Contract

It would be an understatement to say that things haven’t been going well for Mike Richards in Los Angeles. First, in January of this year, we reported that the Kings put him on waivers. Now, this stemmed from trying to figure out what to do about his contract the season prior. They considered buying him […]

Bruins Trade Lucic, Hamilton and Collect Draft Picks

The Boston Bruins have traded forward Milan Lucic to the Los Angeles Kings for goalie Martin Jones, prospect Colin Miller and the 13th overall selection in the 2015 NHL Entry Draft. This deal comes on the heels of another Boston deal earlier that saw them trade defenceman Dougie Hamilton to the Calgary Flames for the […]

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.

Richards is a two-time Stanley Cup champion, an Olympic gold medalist, a Calder Cup champ, a Memorial Cup champ, […]

Kings Put Mike Richards on Waivers

Los Angeles Kings forward Mike Richards has been put on waivers. His club has been trying to figure something out for a while now, but it looks like general manager Dean Lombardi finally made a call. “I think it’s fair to say we made a final decision on this,” said the GM. “…that we’re going […]

Kings Work to Sign Justin Williams

The Los Angeles Kings are pushing to ink winger Justin Williams to a contract sooner rather than later, but there could be some hurdles. For one, Williams doesn’t want to discuss a contract while the season is ongoing. If a deal can’t be reached in relatively short order, talks could be put off until the […]

NHL Suspends Slava Voynov Over Domestic Violence Arrest

The National Hockey League has suspended Los Angeles Kings defenceman Slava Voynov after he was arrested on domestic violence charges. The NHL will be investigating the charges and Voynov will continue to be paid by his hockey club, but he won’t be able to attend practice or play in any games unless and until the […]

Kings Goalie Quick Ties Franchise Shutout Record

Los Angeles Kings goalie Jonathan Quick has tied a franchise record with 32 career shutouts thanks to his 1-0 shootout victory over the St. Louis Blues on Thursday night. He now sits knotted with Rogie Vachon, the Kings goalie who holds several franchise records Quick seemed poised to break. In March of 2014, for instance, […]
