Armed only with a camera and a microphone, Nick Nickson returned from his lenghthy layoff, which caused him to miss the last 10 games of the season, as he rehabbed a back injury. Nickson's hiatus snapped a streak of over 21 years and an unofficial count of 1,612 consecutive regular and post season games broadcast.
On Friday, June 22, Nickson returned to the public eye at the Kings draft party...and boy was he busy.

Nickson also sat down with Kings rookie defenseman Jack Johnson. Nickson, unfortunately was already 'out of the lineup' when Johnson made his NHL debut over the last five games of the 2006-07 season. 300K
