I'm guessing this is an AHL signing - he had 26 goals (and 95 PIM) in Norfolk last year. But he is a big bodied RW who appears to have some skill and grit; maybe they're considering him to play opposite Ivanans on the 4th line.

The cup is ours!

DeeMeck 07-13-2009 02:20 PM

This signing has shut down that other site :)

Cutty Sarkn3ss* 07-13-2009 02:34 PM

Dean was probably bored. . felt like signing someone. . . cool beans

Telos 07-13-2009 02:42 PM

Bah, just as I update my charts -_- I think this is just another depth/AHL type deal as well. Hopefully Manchester is competitive and goes deep in the playoffs again this year as they have in the past.

JDM 07-13-2009 02:45 PM

Well, he made his NHL debut on my birthday... that's gotta be good for something...

LA Kings Cup Champs 07-13-2009 02:47 PM

I wonder if DL wants to instill some toughness as well as some competitiveness to the club on every level...It's about time this team had a heart and soul...thanks Dean. :handclap: :yo:

Reaper45 07-13-2009 03:44 PM

Manchester should be tough.

Pucknut50 07-13-2009 03:50 PM

Hey you can never have enough right hand shot right wingers.

That line just never gets old... oh wait... yes it does. :)

Peter James Bond 07-13-2009 04:14 PM

nothing wrong with signing a 25 year old RW who would have been #2 in scoring in Manchester last year.

http://www.hockeydb.com/ihdb/stats/l...026722009.html

In 2002-2003, only had 10 points less than Getzlaf on the Hitmen:
Also about doubled his points last year. Could be a late bloomer who is putting it together.

Where does signing him put the Kings in regards to the 50 contract limit?

According to this link: http://capgeek.com/charts.php?Team=1...ary_cap_thou=8, the Kings have 39 players under contract, with two yet to be signed RFA's. So by adding Brandon Segal and assuming Johnson and Purcell are re-signed, the Kings will have 42 contracted players in total.

Next summer the Kings will have 8 RFA's and 3 UFA's.

Give that man a cigar.

He'll probably be the guy that gets called up and down all season so that the development of prospects is not disrupted.

That could be. I was also thinking about it the other way, that he is such an AHL vet at this point that he is there to keep Manchester going when the Kings want to get a look at the other rookie tough guys like King and Pelech and Clune.

Or maybe this signals that they are expecting Westgarth to make the team out of camp, leaving Manchester without a bruiser that has AHL experience?

I would use the list above yours. It includes the QOs that have been tendered (Elkins, Murray, Piskula, Bagnall) but doesn't show on capgeek because there aren't any contract numbers yet.

So, basically, we're at 44 until Azevedo gets a contract; 45 if that happens.

+ 2 more contracts (may not count if returned to juniors, Loktionov and Voinov also fall under this category)

I have us at 43. Don't believe Loktionov counts yet and Acevedo has still not signed a Kings contract.

Johnny Utah 07-13-2009 05:50 PM

This dude is not an enforcer...he has at most 8 fights in the AHL in one year and that a couple seasons ago....He seems like a skilled power forward who can fight.
