According to a report by the Philadelphia Inquirer’s Sam Carchidi, the Philadelphia Flyers have made offers to unrestricted free agents Zach Parise, Ryan Suter, and Matt Carle. ESPN’s Pierre LeBrun confirmed Carchidi’s report.
All three UFAs have been rumoured to be targeted by the Flyers, especially defensemen Suter and Carle.
Parise, one of the elite forwards in the league, is one of the top sought-after free agents this summer. After playing in just 13 games in the 2010-2011 season due to injury, he posted 69 points in 82 games during the 2011-2012 regular season, and another 15 points in 24 games during the playoffs.
With the No. 30 overall selection in the 2012 NHL Draft, the Los Angeles Kings have selected Tanner Pearson.
Pearson is a big-bodied left wing that has been passed over in two previous drafts. He is a proto-typical late bloomer.
He has okay skating, but makes up for that with his vision and skills. He leans on his strengths, which include crisp passing and a quick release, instead of trying to play outside of his skill set.
His skating will likely need to improve if he is to excel to his full potential at the professional level. Pearson registered six points for Canada in the World Junior Championships, and his playmaking ability was on full display with fiv...
At around 8 p.m. Pacific standard time on June 11th, Simon Gagne had finally earned the right to hoist the Stanley Cup over his head.
Despite a series of unfortunate events that had spanned several seasons and a near tumble when he tried to pick up the Cup for the first time, Gagne had finally reached the peak of the hockey summit where he rightfully belonged.
For the first time in franchise history, the Los Angeles Kings are Stanley Cup Champions. They capped off the series with an impressive 6-1 win over the New Jersey Devils Monday night in at the Staples Center in the company of twenty thousand of the clubs most fervent supporters.
The game’s most significant turn came in the first period with a five-minute major penalty assessed to New Jersey’s Steve Bernier for boarding Rob Scuderi. He was most likely retaliating for a non-call on a hit by Jarrett Stoll on Stephen Gionta, but his actions were solely responsible...
It's amazing how quickly a series can turn. A week ago the Kings took game three and were one win away from a sweep and their first Stanley Cup, fast forward to today and things aren't as simple. Martin Brodeur has limited a high octane offense to two goals in the past two games and the Devils' offense has provided just enough spark to put pressure on Los Angeles.
The 1942 Toronto Maple Leafs and the 1945 Detroit Red Wings have become relevant again. New Jersey joins select company by trailing in the Stanley Cup Finals 3-0 and becoming the third team to bring the series back 3-2. In both the 1942 and '45 series the team down 3-2 won game six to force a game sev...

Despite the sheer dominance the Los Angeles Kings have shown over the previous three contests, one sort of expecting these road-weary Devils to show some fight at some point. Tonight they did. The teams combined for four goals, all of which were scored in the third period. The final tally was recorded by rookie Adam Henrique, who only has two series-clinching goals on his short resume prior to tonight’s game. His short-side snipe with less than five minutes to go sealed the victory and saved his team from a...
For the first time in their 45 year history the Los Angeles Kings will be playing a game to win the Stanley Cup. The Kings other trip to the Stanley Cup Finals in 1993 amounted to only one win and a series loss against the Montreal Canadiens, 19 years later L.A. only needs one more game.
The Kings postseason campaign has been taken right out of a Hollywood script. Substantial underdogs, the Kings ran through the top three seeds in the western conference suffering only two losses. Two overtime victories and a blowout later in the finals and the Kings are a step away from becoming NHL royalty.
Most fitting, the potential clinching game will be in Los Angeles. Kin...

One more win. Drop those three words around any long-suffering Los Angeles Kings fan and you’re bound to see grown men reduced to tears. There’s also endless elation from fans of all ages as they shout, hoot, and holler until the sun rises the next morning. It promises to be a glorious moment when it happens, and it could be Wednesday. One more win.
That’s where the Kings sit this morning roughly nine hours after shutting out New Jersey by a score of 4-0 to take a three games to none series lead. Alec Martinez, Anze Kopitar, Jeff Carter...
