Los Angeles Kings Rumors & News
LA Kings Insider 2 hours ago
With the news yesterday surrounding Slava Voynov’s domestic violence arrest, it should be reiterated that the primary concern at this point is the well-being of the alleged victim, given the details released yesterday by the Redondo Beach Police Department. Though Voynov has not been charged at this point, and there is well established principle of the presumption of innocence, this is obviously a serious matter that takes importance over any Kings personnel options. Again, this has nothing to do with guilt or innocence, but rather providing information to those who may need them: there are...

Obviously, we all know the big news of the day. There’s more coverage here, here, here, here and here. Mark Whicker of the LA News Group has a well articulated piece here, as well. As I noted in the comments section of an earlier post, there are plenty of questions that will ultimately follow about how this affects the Kings’ roster, the salary cap, and other tertiary concerns. It’s not the appropriate time to answer those questions right now. Maybe tomorrow will be the appropriate time, maybe Wednesday will be. But that time isn’t right now. Elsewhere, in Kings news [...]

From the Kings: These developments are of great concern to our organization. We support the NHL’s decision to suspend Slava Voynov indefinitely during this process, and we will continue to take appropriate action as the legal proceedings and the investigation by the NHL take their course.

The NHL has reacted swiftly with Stanley Cup champion Slava Voynov being arrested this morning on domestic violence charges, suspending the Kings defenseman indefinitely pending a further investigation. This is in contrast to last season, when Avalanche goalie Semyon Varlamov played the next night in a similar situation, though all charges against Varlamov were eventually dropped. Here’s the NHL release on the Voynov situation: “Los Angeles Kings defenseman Slava Voynov has been suspended indefinitely from all club activities pending a formal investigation by the National Hockey League...

The Lakers trailed the Utah Jazz by 22 points and another exhibition embarrassment was on the way. Or so it appeared. Instead, the Lakers started playing defense and took a 98-91 victory Sunday at Staples Center.

Cairo Santos kicked a 48-yard field goal with 21 seconds left and the Kansas City Chiefs beat San Diego, 23-20, on Sunday to snap the Chargers' five-game winning streak.
On the continuation of the penalty kill’s identity: I think it’s the way our team is, the type of players we have, I think we have a lot of guys who can penalty kill – not only defensively, but in front, too, so we can stay fresh. We should have a lot of line changes on the penalty kill for doing what we’re supposed to be doing. It takes a lot. Number one, it takes good goaltending and making big saves, faceoffs good clears, blocking shots, just a willingness to do it, and we definitely have the guys to do [...]
On the Kings being “bailed out” by Jonathan Quick: I think our special teams won us the game. On the importance of the two third period penalty kills: Obviously big. I mean, as I said, it’s the penalty kill and the power play that’s the difference in the hockey game. On how concerned he is over the shot on goal disparity over the last two game: Oh, I wish our guys who keep shots would give us a few more. [Reporter: How much of that is missing Gaborik and Muzzin, do you think?] And Lewis. On whether the Kings benefited [...]
