TRH GAMEDAY 1 – MINNESOTA WILD: SUMMER VACATION
BEST PLAYER TO WEAR BOTH COLORS:
Ahh… Los Angeles Kings Opening Night. There really is no feeling quite like it. Well… unless you went to Frozen Fury last weekend in Las Vegas. That is legally the only better feeling than LA Kings Opening Night.
Welcome to the 1st 2013-14 Regular Season The Royal Half LA Kings Gameday™. Sure, we’ve done one of these so far this season… but now it counts. For those of you who aren’t familiar with The Royal Half… we are your one-stop shop for detailed hockey analysis, advanced statistics as well as in-depth player interviOH WHO CARES, JUST GIVE THE PEOPLE WHAT THEY WANT…. PHOTOSHOPS!!!
PRESENTING… WHAT THE LA KINGS DID ON THEIR SUMMER VACATION!!!
PART 1 – THE FORWARDS
Dustin Brown spent his summer shooting the pilot for the next great Reality TV family-themed breakout hit…
Daniel Carcillo did his best imitation of a 2011-2012 Los Angeles King.
Except no member of the LA Kings would be caught dead listening to Rush.
When you are Jeff Carter… the only thing to do over the summer…
… is just to continue being Jeff Carter.

With the the LA Kings Salary Cap space getting a bit tighter over the summer and his chance for a regular roster spot in jeopardy…
…Kyle Clifford began his obsession with destroying Daniel Carcillo… from the inside.
All summer long, Colin Fraser was a “Nickel Bag”…
After awakening a magical genie from a 1000 year slumber… Matt Frattin spent his summer deciding what his 3 wishes would be.
Trust me… you don’t want to see what his other two wishes were.
In an effort to rebound from a disappointing 2013 season, Dwight King went back to school in order to improve his game.
FYI, this is not a photoshop.
Let’s just say that Trevor Lewis has taken his possible selection to the United States Olympic Team a bit too seriously…
In an effort to rebound from a disappointing 2013 season…
…Nolan watched every moment of his 2012 Stanley Cup run.
And it seems to be working so far.
While many people will take summer vacations to Disneyland… Mike Richards went to his own personal “Happiest Place on Earth.”
Just when you thought that Jarret Stoll’s abs couldn’t get any more defined…
…he starts doing Yoga.
After seeing that internet meme sensation, Grumpy Cat, was now worth over 1 million dollars…
…Grumpy Justin Williams wants a piece of the action.
