KINGS PRE-SEASON NOTES
TRAINING CAMP ROSTER TRIMMED TO 52
The Kings on Wednesday returned the following players to their Junior teams: Jean Francois Berube
(G) to Montreal (QMJHL), Nicolas Deslauriers (D) to Rouyn-Noranda (QMJHL), Martin Jones (G) to
Calgary (WHL), Brandon Kozun (RW) to Calgary (WHL) and Linden Vey (RW) to Medicine Hat
(WHL)…The Kings also released the following players from their training camp tryout: Milan Doczy (D),
Radko Gudas (D) and Tyler Maxwell (C).

REGULAR SEASON STARTS OCT. 3 VS. PHOENIX
The Kings open the 2009-10 regular season at home vs. Phoenix Saturday, Oct. 3. It will be the
beginning of three-game homestand, which also sees San Jose come to town on Tuesday, Oct. 6 and
Minnesota on Thursday, Oct. 8. The Kings will then embark on a season-long six-game road trip (Oct. 10
to Oct. 19).

THE GOAL: A RETURN TO THE STANLEY CUP PLAYOFFS THIS SEASON
Kings President/General Manager Dean Lombardi has resisted the temptation to go for a quick fix and
instead has patiently rebuilt the Kings the right way.
Strengthening the reserve list and building a core roster that gets progressively younger from year to year
were at the top of the “Things To Do” list when Lombardi joined the Kings in 2006. Now four years later,
Lombardi has positioned the Kings to not only contend for the playoffs this season, but to also contend
long-term.

Kings’ fans can clearly see how the plan has come together with the influx of young talent to the roster
over the past few seasons. Players like Drew Doughty, Jack Johnson, Oscar Moller, Wayne
Simmonds, Teddy Purcell and Jonathan Quick have followed the lead of core players like Anze
Kopitar, Dustin Brown, Alexander Frolov, Jarret Stoll and Matt Greene and Michal Handzus.

Two former Stanley Cup champions were also added to the team during the 2008-09 season as Sean
O’Donnell and Justin Williams were both acquired via trade. Both are known as character players and
both understand what it takes to win hockey’s ultimate prize.

Another player that certainly understands the sacrifice needed to be a champion is Rob Scuderi. The
defenseman won the 2009 Stanley Cup championship with Pittsburgh. But, instead of re-signing with the
Penguins, Scuderi chose instead to sign as a free agent with the Kings, a great indication of how far the
organization has come and how players around the league can see where this organization is headed in
the very near future. With Scuderi, the Kings added versatility as he can play on the right side or the left
side, and with an offensive or a defensive-minded partner. The Kings were also looking for a player with
grit and a winning attitude who’s willing to go into the tough areas on the ice to score goals, and they
believe they found that player in Ryan Smyth, who waived his no-trade clause with Colorado to clear the
way for a trade to LA.

Nice GDT!

I missed those.

I wish I could see the Frolov-Loktionov-Simmonds line. That just sounds amazing.

Any idea why they're not putting Heatley out there to start with?

JBernierFan 09-17-2009 07:53 PM

Looks like SJ is dressing a few more roster players than we are. Should be interesting. Can't wait to see (or hear) the Fro-Loti-Simmonds line!

Chruceg 09-17-2009 07:54 PM

Your game threads rock, Johnjm22! Beat those San Jose (expletive deleted) (expletive deleted) (expletive deleted) (expletive deleted)(expletive deleted) (expletive deleted) (expletive deleted)!

God I hate San Jose

Brad Doty 09-17-2009 07:55 PM

I'm excited to be going in a bit; I'll see if I can remember to jot down some observations, but I'll likely just be yelling :)

Heatley is expected — the official release uses the word ‘hopeful” –to arrive in San Jose sometime Thursday

Butch 19 09-17-2009 08:02 PM

WTF is up with the Kings pre-season record? They haven't had a losing pre-season since 88-89. And several years were very good at 6-1 & 7-1.

What have they been doing in the pre-season that they can't keep going during the regular season? - for 20 years!

Zad 09-17-2009 08:06 PM

I may go. I doubt it is sold out.

Buddy The Elf 09-17-2009 08:08 PM

Wish I was home so I could go tonight. I'm stuck in Jersey!

It doesn't even feel like training camp has started because I've been here since Sunday.

kingsholygrail 09-17-2009 08:14 PM

Nice GDT. :) Hope the Kings iron out some more kinks.

Maynard 09-17-2009 08:16 PM

I will be there and I COULD post updates from my phone but I don't feel like it.

Defgarden 09-17-2009 08:16 PM

I'm stuck on night duty. Otherwise, I'd probably be there. As a side note, the Kings have had a winning percentage in pre-season since 88. If only...

Kurrilino 09-17-2009 08:22 PM

there was thoughts to show this game on Kings vision..........

does anyone has some news??
