With the Kings 5-0 shutout of defending Stanley Cup Champion, Chicago Blackhawks, Kings’ goalie Jonathan Quick passed John Vanbiesbrouck and Frank Brimsek for the most all-time shutouts for US-born goalies.
The LA Kings have traded Christian Ehrhoff for Rob Scuderi. The Kings retain part of Ehrhoff’s salary, while Chicago is eating half of Scuderi’s, over the next 2 years.
It appears the Kings have also re-acquired another ex-King in Teddy Purcell, though details are not in yet.
Per Bob McKenzie tweet. Also, not on ice, per Jon Rosen.
After 4 days off, with extended practices on breakouts and the powerplay, the Kings dominate in Boston, beating the Bruins 9-2.
However 71 left ice with rest of starters while 15 stayed on ice with scratches
I think the Dodgers will continue to do a lot of platooning in 2016.
Behind the plate they have:
RH Ellis and SH Grandal
At 1B: LH Gonzalez (and some RH Van Slyke)
2B: RH Hernandez, LH Utley
SS: LH Seager (and some RH Hernandez)
3B: RH Turner (and some LH Utley)
Outfield: RH Van Slyke, Thompson, Puig, LH Crawfish, Pederson, Ethier
Leaving only 12 forwards, with no others ready, it seems like a salary cap move to me. Every day you don’t have someone on the NHL roster gives you a little bit more salary cap room. I think he’ll be called back up before the next game.
