Sorry folks, I know it’s been a few days between updates here but I’ve been here in Phoenix covering the Lakers since Saturday night so life is a bit hectic. But for those who haven’t found the info elsewhere, here’s a bit of a recap of how some of the Kings’ prospects are faring.
Manchester is up 3-0 in its first-round AHL series against Worcester and can wrap up the series Wednesday. In Game 3 on Saturday, Jason LaBarbera stopped 26 shots in a 5-0 victory. Brian Boyle scored his first goal, and the Monarchs also got goals from Noah Clarke, Marty Murray, Patrick O’Sullivan and Matt Ryan.
Here (link) is a story from NHL.com on Boyle.
Lewiston is up 2-0 in its quarterfinal QMJHL series against Rouyn-Noranda. Game 3 is today. In Game 2 on Saturday, Lewiston won 7-4. Jonathan Bernier stopped 26 of 30 shots and Marc-Andre Cliche had one assist.
Starting Friday, we’ll be able to keep track of Michael Cammalleri (Canada) and Jack Johnson (USA) in the IIHF World Championships in Russia.
In addition, Anze Kopitar led Slovenia to a first-place finish in its pool at the Division I World Championships. Slovenia finished 5-0, scored 29 goals and allowed five. That means Slovenia will move up to the IIHF World Championships (the big show) next year.
