Red-hot Blue Jays get some love from Kings' Kopitar at Stanley Cup final

EL SEGUNDO, Calif. - The Toronto Blue Jays, who have been tearing up the American League East of late, got a little love at the Stanley Cup final on Thursday.

Los Angeles Kings star forward Anze Kopitar showed up at an off-day media availability Thursday, wearing a Blue Jays ball cap.

Asked where he got the hat, the 26-year-old Slovenian smiled.

"I snagged it from Drew Doughty," he said, referring to the Kings defenceman from London, Ont.

"I like to watch baseball once in a while," he continued. "I'm not going to watch all the games, all 162. But I'll sit down and watch it and just relax."

Quote of the Day

He's only 17 but he can see the ice so well and he moves the puck and goes to the open ice all the time, so I just think he's a player that is ready to play in the NHL. I'm really looking forward to coaching someone like this.

— U.S. National Junior Team coach Ron Wilson on Auston Matthews, the projected No. 1 pick of the 2016 NHL Draft
