KINGS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Kings' win streak snapped ahead of big matchup with Ducks

The weather forecast might call for mid-70s and sunny, but rest assured, there is a storm brewing in Anaheim. If you haven't been following along, it's been a pretty busy week in Southern California hockey. The Ducks have a new winger, the Kings a new defenseman.

Sekera hasn't been briefed by coach Darryl Sutter yet, but that much he understands...

Fantasy Impact: Andrej Sekera Traded To The Kings

The Los Angeles Kings have been devastated by injuries all season, most notably to their defense and it has cost them quite a bit so far this season, but they’re still in the playoff hunt and that’s all that matters. Still, going into the post season with their patchwork defense isn’t something the Kings were keen on, so you knew they’d make a deal before the deadline and...

Andrej Sekera trade worth risk for red-hot Los Angeles Kings

The Los Angeles Kings are finally starting to look like a team that’s won two Stanley Cup championships in the last three years. After a sluggish start to the 2014-15 campaign, L.A. has won eight straight games and knows it has a great chance to become the first team to claim back-to-back Stanley Cup titles since the 1997-98 Detroit Red Wings. This is why trading for veteran...

The Kings weren’t impressed by their second outdoor game, would rather play inside

Outdoor games are supposed to be special experiences for both the players participating and the fans attending the game. The uniqueness of an outdoor game has been watered down now that the NHL has introduced Stadium Series games. Still, the games draw big numbers and players routinely mention how much they enjoyed the experience. Well, except for the LA Kings. Following the game...

If you hadn't noticed the Kings' fourth line prior to Saturday night's Stadium Series game, you probably took notice when winger Kyle Clifford backhanded a puck in midair into the net less than three minutes into the game.  On paper, Clifford might seem like an unlikely candidate for the franchise's first-ever goal in a regular season outdoor game, but in reality, Clifford's fourth...

Kings' McNabb on Stadium Series: 'It's a must-win for us'

The last time Brayden McNabb played in an outdoor game, the score was a lopsided 11-2. And no, McNabb wasn't on the team that scored 11 goals. "It was a really good environment," he said. "Minus us losing 11-2." In the Bay Area this week, 11 goals isn't necessarily what the Kings are aiming for. In Saturday's Stadium Series game at the San Francisco 49ers new Levi's Stadium, the...
