LA Kings Continue to Grow Hockey in Mexico City Through Zoom Calls

Former Kings center Derek Armstrong and Manager of Hockey Development Courtney Ports connected with children seeking to improve their skills

by Francisco X. Rivera @FX_Rivera / LAKings.com

The LA Kings have had their eyes set on Mexico City since a successful trip in October 2018 to hold clinics at a local court with the participation of former players like Steve Heinze and John Tripp.

That is why at the beginning of 2020, they established a partnership with the Ice World Santa Fe rink to broaden their horizons and forge the successful Jr. Kings children's program south of the border, taking advantage of their international experience with a previous expansion in Beijing at the end of 2018.

And just when everything was ready for staff members and former players of the two-time Stanley Cup champions to return to Mexico to formalize the society and hold a camp, COVID-19 made a dent in the world of sports and prevented any opportunities to be able to organize the event at least until 2021.

Let me pull out a thesaurus. Not for verbs or phrases, as the man is known for, but for nouns.

Icon. Legend. Giant. Luminary.

It's hard to talk about Mike Emrick without heaping effusive praise, even though he's one of the humblest men in our profession.
