Kings GM Dean Lombardi appeared on CBC interviewed by former Kings Kelly Hrudey.
Lombardi on Kelly Hrudey Show
Lombardi discusses his team's need for a coaching change, how the decision came about and even discusses what potential candidates that might replace Crawford in 2008-09.
Hrudey became a full-time hockey analyst during the 1998/99 NHL season, after providing stellar commentary during the previous four playoff seasons alongside Ron MacLean. And during the 1999 NHL playoffs, Hrudey's segment Behind the Mask became a regular feature on Hockey Night in Canada.
In the fall of 2001, Hrudey strapped on the pads at training camp with the Calgary Flames for Basic Training?a feature that aired on the pre-game show during the first five weeks of the regular season.
Basic Training took viewers inside the inner sanctum of the Flames training camp, which was held in Banff, Alta. It gave fans a rare glimpse of what players, rookies and veterans alike go through en route to, hopefully, making an NHL squad.
During the 2000/01 season, Hrudey was featured on HNIC's After Hours. The show presents a strong interactive component, responses to viewer e-mails and the results of a daily viewer's poll conducted over the Internet.
During his 15-year NHL career with the Islanders (six years), Kings (seven years) and Sharks (two years), the former Medicine Hat Tiger compiled a record of 271-265-88, with a goals against average of 3.43, with 16 shutouts.
Hrudey resides in Calgary with his wife and three daughters.
