Is signing Jarret Stoll a “must-do”?

2012-2013 LA Kings Season Preview — Wait, what?

Two or three months ago, I don’t think anyone would have batted an eye if I said that the chances of Dustin Penner or Jarret Stoll re-signing with Kings were about zero. We would have been talking about which rookies might make the team (e.g. Tyler Toffoli, Linden Vey, Jake Muzzin?), would Gagne return from…

2011-2012 Kings Prospects Scoring, Adjusted

67’s amped up for Game 7 against Colts

It might be easy to think Tyler Toffoli has done everything there is to do individually in four seasons in an Ottawa 67’s uniform, but there is a small piece of unfinished business. The two-time Ontario Hockey League goal-scoring champion, who leads in playoffs goals this year with 10 through 12 games, would like to…
