Son of long-time Kings fans signs with Ducks (L.A. Times)

This is an article on a recent Ducks signee, but I think that it may interest some here because it has quite a bit to do with the Kings and SoCal hockey, in general. Some of you may even know his parents. If he ever makes the Ducks, you'll certainly hear this story again. That's another reason why I might as well post it here.
He was on skates when he was 2, wearing Kings sweatsuits "when they had the old purple and gold," said Frank Salcido, who shared Kings season tickets with his wife. Mary Ann has pictures of her son "with his bottle in one hand and a hockey stick in another," and said he's not embarrassed by them — he even displays them in his room.
Wherever they were, hockey was a constant. When Frank was in law school, Mary Ann strapped Brian into a car seat and took him to Kings games. Later, Frank coached him in the successful Junior Kings program. Next season, Frank's team will include the sons of Kings Coach Marc Crawford and assistant coach Mike Johnston.

"We'll remain King fans except when they play the Ducks," Frank said, laughing.
