Andrei Loktionov Demoted

Andrei Loktionov has been officially demoted to Manchester today. Loktionov had a mediocre stint in the bigs this season, appearing in seven games, and scoring 1 goal and 1 assist with a -1. It wasn’t a particularly productive time with Los Angeles, but he showed some real potential. As a 20-year old kid, he could very easily develop into the kind of scorer the Kings were hoping he would be this season when he made the team.

Think demoting Loktionov was a good move? Can you see him making another appearance with Los Angeles this season?

    As long as the Kings bring him back as a center. He did an admirable job playing at a higher level, out of position. A little more size and he’ll be good to go. 1 word, PROTIEN SHAKES!

    Maybe some late night binges on some pizza and Rootbeer, followed by plenty of video games, on the couch. lol

    I tried that, and it was not enough for me… maybe it’d work better for him though!

    Can’t FSNW and the Kings do better than Heidi Anrol?

    Heidi is cool and a nice addition to the Kings team! Leave her alone or be prepared to drop your gloves.
