It looks like the Kings have finally set their roster for the start of the season. With the demotion of Voynov to Manchester, the Kings are down to the necessary 24 players (23 plus an extra goaltender while they’re in Europe) and they look ready to start the season. The opening puck drop is looming, and will be the kickoff to an exciting season. Plus this year we won’t have to compete with basketball scores and news that nobody really cares about (ok, some people do… but I don’t). Anyway, back to the roster.
Starting lineup for the team is after the jump:
Parse – Kopitar – Williams
Gagne – Richards – Brown
Richardson – Stoll – Hunter
Clifford – Lewis – Moreau
Mitchell – Doughty
Johnson – Scuderi
Martinez – Greene
EXTRAS – Drewiske, Westgarth, Penner (injured)
IR – Muzzin
Obviously Zatkoff will be heading to Manchester after the Europe trip, unless of course somebody is injured in one of those two games. Penner will likely reclaim his spot as soon as he is recovered from injury, which will hopefully be very shortly, and Westgarth and Drewiske will hopefully get really comfortable in the press box. It’s a solid lineup, and one that should be very interesting to watch take on the Rangers on Friday.
