KINGS SET TO OPEN 2007 TRAINING CAMP

by Staff Writer / Los Angeles Kings
LOS ANGELES – The Los Angeles Kings are set to officially open their 2007 NHL Training Camp with their first on-ice session scheduled for Monday, Sept. 10, beginning at 9:30 a.m. at the Toyota Sports Center in El Segundo. Fans are welcome to attend all on-ice practices as 67 players are scheduled to participate in this year’s Training Camp.

Players from each team will be made available to the media at the completion of their on-ice/off-ice workout schedule. Kings Head Coach Marc Crawford will be available at the conclusion of the day’s final on-ice session.

Recently acquired players Tom Preissing, Michal Handzus, Ladislav Nagy, Brad Stuart and Kyle Calder highlight the list of new Kings taking part in the Camp.

The players will be divided into three teams at the start of Camp – Team Berry, Team Goring and Team Murphy, which are named after three prominent former Kings players (Bob Berry, Butch Goring and Mike Murphy) from the 1974-75 Kings team that recorded a franchise-high 105 points and 42 wins. The teams will compete for the second annual Rogie Cup, which is named for Kings Hall of Fame goaltender and Royal Ambassador Rogie Vachon. Each team will play two games over the course of three days. The team with the most points after the three games will be awarded the Rogie Cup.

The Toyota Sports Center in El Segundo is located at 555 North Nash Street. Games and practices will be held on both the NHL and Olympic rinks.
