Adrian Kempe

Our Dearest Adrian,

This was, to some, at least, a make-or-break season for you. For your struggles in recent years, you have kicked those to the proverbial curb to show the Kings, their opponents, and even the rest of the NHL what Adrian Kempe is truly made of.

Your four goals and five assists thus far are certainly noteworthy, but it’s your creativity and your relentless determination that helps the LA Kings compete every night. Not every game will result in two points, and not every game will give the greatest collective effort, but for any critics you had, you have certainly shown them what you are capable of when doubted.

You may not have the lineage that Dustin Brown or Anze Kopitar have, but your leadership is nonetheless a solid asset at a time when the LA Kings need it most.

With love!
