Kings Weekly: Episode 9 Preview

by Alex Kinkopf / Los Angeles Kings



A brand new episode of ‘Kings Weekly’ debuts Thursday night on Fox Sports West at 10 PM.

One of the key aspects of this week’s episode will focus on Natassa Torralbo, who survived the San Bernardino shootings, only to have her house robbed while she and her daughter were attending a vigil for the victims. When Bailey and the Kings hear Natassa’s story, they brought her to last Sunday’s game, and replaced one of her most beloved stolen items, a Wayne Gretzky jersey.

WATCH: Natassa and the Kings

This week’s episode will also feature the second installment of Kings ‘Mean Tweets’, an on-ice demonstration with Jim Fox and the El Segundo Strikers of the LAKHSHL, a showcase of Southern California’s top College hockey prospects, Kings players’ opinions on who the best “travel buddy” is on road trips, and of course, the #KWTop5 Plays of the Week!

Here’s what’s on tap for Episode 9:
