Off The Post: Meet the Players Edition

by Deborah Lew / Los Angeles Kings

*Editor’s Note: Throughout the season, staff writer Deborah Lew will boldly seek to satisfy the burning curiosity of fans by using current events and thought-provoking creativity to get a comprehensive off-the-ice look at the boys who’ve captured our hearts and our attention span 82+ nights every year.

Each edition will feature two questions: 1) The “Shot,” which will relate to the player giving the answer; and 2) The “Pass,” which will ask the player to name a teammate. Keep checking back for new exciting editions of “Off the Post!”

The annual Season Ticket Member “Meet the Players” event will take place this Tuesday, and for the third year in a row will be held at Hollywood Park. This event gives Season Ticket Members the exclusive opportunity to interact with and get photos and autographs from the players they are so dedicated to supporting – emotionally and monetarily!

While Anze Kopitar, Dustin Brown, and Jonathan Quick are accustomed to drawing the most rousing autograph-seeking crowds, which celebrities have our favorite hockey players gotten giddy over meeting?
