There’s a lot less of Raitis Ivanans this year. Ivanans weighed in at roughly 260 pounds last season, and he said the Kings asked him to drop a significant amount of weight during the summer. Ivanans said he lost 17 pounds.
“They want me to be a little more mobile and have a little more speed out there,” Ivanans said.
And does he feel any different on the ice?
“I don’t know,” Ivanans said. “I feel the same, but hopefully it will show during the year.”
