Merry TRH-mas

Presenting a soon-to-be Holiday Classic from Jersey Brian!

You know Carter and Fraser and Sutter and Frattin.
Nolan and Mitchell and Clifford and Scrivens.
But do you recall?
The most greatest LA King of all?

Martin the red-faced rookie
Had a slightly hybrid pose
And if you ever saw him
You wouldn’t see very many goals
All of the other players
Use to see Quick start games
They only let poor Martin
Play for Ontario’s Reigns

Then one foggy Christmas Eve
Coach came to say
Martin, with your future so bright,
Won’t you guide my team tonight

Then all the Kings’ fans loved him
And they shouted out with glee
Martin the red-faced rookie
You’ll almost make history

Merry TRH-mas, everyone!
