Canucks Regular (9/16)



  1. The Kings are happy with the return we got for Montembeault, and we're also happy that he'll have a spot to play with the Rangers. We decided to keep our tandem of Bobrovsky and DeSmith together, and are pleased to add a quality young d-man in Gawanke as well as the 2nd round pick next summer. Cheers to @HighOnHockey for the trade talks and we hope that Montembeault plays well in New York.

  7. Dang. Looks like we'll be in the market for another forward after all.
  8. Training Camp Report The Kings have undergone a major overhaul this summer, with GM arby18_ making a few trades, letting multiple UFA's go over the summer and filling those holes with plenty of new free agents. While the top-half of the roster remains similar to last year's playoff team, it certainly has the new GM's stamp on it as we enter a new era in LA. Forward Locks: Anders Lee, Nicklas Backstrom, Tanner Pearson, Max Comtois, Pius Suter, Dmitrij Jaskin, Adam Lowry, Vlad Namestnikov, Derek Ryan, Freddy Gaudreau, Ryan Reaves, Andreas Johnsson Forwards Fighting for Roles: Patrick Brown, Jasper Weatherby, Josh Dunne, Josh Archibald With Nicklas Backstrom looking to begin the season on the IR with a hip issue, and Josh Archibald's entire season up in the air due to his vaccination status, we are aware that our forward ranks could be short a body or two. We are hopeful that one of Brown, Weatherby or Dunne could surprise and earn a spot out of camp, but the waiver wire and or the trade market could be needed to fill out the ranks. Defense Locks: Mark Giordano, Mattias Ekholm, Danny Dekeyser, Josh Manson Defenders Fighting for Roles: Troy Stecher, Dean Kukan, Chris Wideman, Slater Koekkoek The Kings are pleased with the 8 defenders listed above, and likely carry all of them when the season starts. But there are still some battles to see who slots onto the bottom pair and who will sit in the pressbox, so it'll be interesting to see who can earn those spots. But the organization is aware of the lack of depth on the blueline past these 8 names, and it'll be an area of focus going forward. Goalie Locks: Sergei Bobrovsky, Casey DeSmith We are comfortable going into this season with this pair of netminders, and are hopeful that they'll combine for roughly 60-65 starts combined.
  9. SIGNING: The Arizona Coyotes have signed unrestricted free agent Kirill Semyonov to a two-year deal. Kirill Semyonov - 2 year, $2.1 million dollar contract. ($1.05 million per season)
  10. The Kings are very pleased to get Slater, Josh and Jasper under contract and into training camp. We feel that all 3 will play important depth roles in our organization, whether that's with the NHL roster or not as camp breaks. But with Josh Archibald a big question mark due to his vaccination status, we felt that bringing in a few more forward options to push for jobs was important, while Slater will provide us with a veteran in the 7th/8th defender role that we were after. Training camp updates and rosters to come.
  11. Contract Termination: The LA Kings terminate the contract of Marcus Sorensen who recently signed a 4-year deal to return to Sweden with Djurgården of the SHL.
  12. The Kings are pretty content with how things currently look in LA, but may be willing to listen to ideas when it comes to Mark Giordano, Danny Dekeyser, Casey DeSmith, Andreas Johnsson, Vlad Namestnikov and Josh Archibald as they are all free agents after this coming season. Inquire within, via PM or Discord.
  13. SIGNING: The Arizona Coyotes have signed RFA defenceman Timothy Liljegren to a three-year deal. Timothy Liljegren - 3-year, $4.35 million dollar contract ($1.45 million per season)
  14. SIGNING: The Winnipeg Jets have signed UFA forward Bear Hughes to a three-year deal. Bear Hughes - Three-year contract worth $2.4 million dollars ($800k per year)
