There’s some nostalgia that creeps in when you hear Rob Scuderi’s name.
The veteran stay-at-home defenseman was acquired in a trade Friday afternoon from the Chicago Blackhawks. Scuderi spent four seasons with the Kings, playing in a total of 335 games which included four playoff appearances and a Stanley Cup Championship in 2012.
You may remember a certain power play in the Kings’ cup-clinching win on June 11, 2012, a five-minute major that stemmed from a vicious hit-from-behind taken by Scuderi that led to three power play goals.
37 stitches to the face never paid off so graciously.
