What to watch as the Kings began training camp Thursday:
There’s zero question as to the Kings’ starting goaltender. It’ll be Jonathan Quick unless he’s hurt or abducted by aliens. The question is who will be his backup now that Jonathan Bernier is a member of the Toronto Maple Leafs? The Kings have seven goalies in camp, including Quick. It would seem the logical selection would be Ben Scrivens, the man they got from the Maple Leafs in the Bernier trade over the summer. But there also a couple of interesting names to pick from, including Mathieu Garon. The NHL veteran is here on a tryout basis and coach Darryl Sutter said he’ll be given every opportunity to try to win a job. Patrik Bartosak, J.F. Berube, Martin Jones and Mathias Niederberger also are in camp.
