"Don't hold your breath waiting for Edmonton to trade the rights to Wayne Gretzky's former Oiler linemate, Jari Kurri, to the Kings," cautioned Los Angeles Times columnist Allan Malamud in early May 1991.

Dream Kid Noah

Meet Noah, He Has Fire In His Heart and Ice In His Blood @LAKings

Noah Thompson is a 13-year-old from Charlotte, NC who eats, sleeps and breathes hockey. Noah has been playing hockey since he was old enough to stand on the ice and he has a very natural talent. In fact, the sport has been handed down from his father, once a goalie himself, to both Noah and his brother. Noah's talent combined with his determination and focus took him to a travel team where he played goalie with the best hockey players of his age.

Two years ago, Noah received some unexpected news. He was diagnosed with Epilepsy and in a blink of an eye, the course of his life changed. Noah has had to adopt many new behaviors including learning his seizure inducing triggers, keeping up with medicines, and facing other obstacles such as self-esteem issues, fear, and trouble with memory and concentration. As you might guess, Noah had to give up the travel team due to the physical intensity and now plays for a recreational league. He shared with us that sometimes he "feels off on the ice" and that means he might miss a drill and sit the bench, never easy moments for Noah. Despite these new obstacles he is facing, Noah works very hard to keep a positive mindset.

Meet Nic - Rookie Dowd Adjusting to Life in LA

26-year-old has made big impact on the ice, but the journey to the NHL has been anything but ordinary for the Alabama-born center

by Deborah Lew @by_DeborahLew /

Two-thousand miles away from the glitz and glamour of Hollywood, and his future National Hockey League home, Nic Dowd was born and raised in the town of Huntsville, Alabama.

The 26-year-old, who is embarking on his first full season in the NHL with the LA Kings, was born the youngest of three boys to parents Alan and Liz, who immigrated to the United States from England. He began skating around the age of two and started playing hockey just a couple years later. In the backyard with mini sticks, his older brothers, Matt and Josh, along with his dad playing goalie, is how Dowd remembers his first hockey-playing days.
