Meet Tobias Rieder: LA Kings Newest Right Winger

From growing up in Germany to being drafted in the fourth round of the 2011 Entry Level Draft, Rieder's path to the NHL hasn't been easy

by Deborah Lew @by_DeborahLew /

The idea of his home country winning a Silver Medal in Men's Ice Hockey at the Winter Olympic Games seemed like a far-fetched idea for a young Tobias Rieder, who began playing hockey in his hometown of Landshut, Germany some 22 years ago. But that was then, and this is now.

The 25-year-old Rieder watched as much of this year's Olympic hockey tournament as the LA Kings' schedule permitted, and was delighted with Germany's silver medal win. Especially, since it necessitated an ousting of Canada in order to advance to the gold medal matchup with the Olympic Athletes from Russia.

Tweet from @LAKings: Congratulations to Marcel Noebels, Frank H��rdler, Jonas M��ller and the Men���s German Hockey Team on winning silver ��

"That was a pretty big step for hockey in Germany," Rieder said of his country, which did not even qualify for Olympic play in 2014.

LA Kings Celebrate NHL Green Month

In conjunction with the NHL, the Kings dedicated two games to support sustainability

by Kings Care Foundation @LAKingsCare /

In a nod to NHL Green Month, a March initiative in which clubs dedicate resources to raise awareness and funds for sustainable causes, the LA Kings dedicated two games to support sustainability efforts.

Before the Kings game against the Detroit Red Wings on March 15, fans were encouraged to take public transportation - an eco-friendly alternative to driving to games. By doing so, all fans in Kings' gear on the Metro had the chance to win special Kings giveaways.

Several fans opted to #GoMetro and one lucky fan won the best prize of all: Two tickets to the Kings games against the New Jersey Devils on March 17, as well as a Kings Green warm-up jersey.

Meet Andy Lassner: Executive Producer and Avid LA Kings Fan

Executive Producer of the Ellen DeGeneres Show, Andy Lassner, explains his love for the LA Kings and the bond he has created with some of the players

by Josh Cooper @JoshuaCooper /

Andy Lassner isn't trying to make any kind of fashion statement when he wears LA Kings' apparel on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show."

Lassner is an executive producer for the show, and has been with the show since 2003. Lassner has won 18 daytime Emmy Awards in his distinguished career, but he also has season tickets for the Kings. He often heads to the studio already decked out in gear for his favorite team, and then leaves for Staples Center right after filming is done.

Tweet from @andylassner: Now. 4-0. @LAKings I love this team

"It just so happens that a lot of the times that I'm on the show, there's a Kings game that night. And, I always like to try and wear something Kings,'" he said.

In recent years, Lassner has become one of the more visible Kings fans. He has fostered a friendship with captain Anze Kopitar and built a strong relationship with the organization that has led to some viral video moments on the show. These have included: Kopitar raising money for Breast Cancer Awareness Month in 2013, Jonathan Quick surprising young piano whiz Daniel Clarke Bouchard in 2014, and Lassner playing goaltender against some of the Kings for a skit in 2017.

This season, Lassner has gone on Fox Sports West a few times to give his take on the Kings where his nervous, passionate energy for the team has furthered his appeal.

Video: Andy Lassner correctly predicts 5-2 final score

"I'm like on 20 different text message situations when a Kings' game is going on. It's like a community of fans and we're all the same kind of crazy, fanatic fans," Lassner said. "I watch every game. If I'm somehow at some social situation, some other thing that I can't go to the game or I can't be at home watching the game and I'm out, I'm literally getting yelled at by my wife for checking the score every 30 seconds."

Fit to be King: 6-Minute Ab Workout

Chandler Parr takes you through a quick and effective ab routine to help you get ready for spring and summer!

by Chandler Parr @chandlerparrfit /

Hey FTBK Team!

This week I've put together a quick ab circuit you can do anytime, anywhere. All you need is your body!

With spring and summer approaching, this is a great little circuit to mix into your daily routine. I like to do this before bed or right when I wake up in the morning. Its super quick and, if done consistently, will produce the results you are looking for! As your strength starts to build, you will be able to hold each plank progression and crunch series longer.

This circuit will allow you to reach burnout, which is a very effective way to produce a strong, toned core. Hope you guys enjoy this, and as always, make sure you tag me @chandlerparrfit, @LAKings, and hashtag #FTBK, so we can see you doin' your thing!!
