He started his day off at the UCLA’s Athletic Department, inside the Hall of Fame, where UCLA athletes, administration and students got to see the beloved trophy.

Dan Guerrero, the Athletic Director was thrilled to have the Cup at UCLA, “It’s certainly evident that all of the Kings fans are alive and well here at UCLA. The line has gone out the door and people continue to come in their Kings regalia and all their clothes, it’s a thrill for us to have the opportunity to share the Stanley Cup, with our folks here at UCLA.”

Standing in UCLA’s Hall of Fame where over 111 trophies reside, Guerrero added how the 121 year old Stanley Cup stands out,” We call ourselves the Conference of Champions, our motto is Champions Made Here, and all of our students athletes know that when they come here to UCLA they have a legitimate chance to win something, whether it’s a Conference Championship or a National Championship. So, this room that we are standing in right now has 111 Championship Trophies that UCLA has and one that the Kings won this last year. This is the right place for this trophy to be displayed.”

The Los Angeles Kings training camp for the 2014-15 season was full underway at Toyota Sports Center on Friday. The players did a lot of off ice work including strength tests.

As we reported yesterday there were five major things to look for.

1.Jonathan Quick-who seemed to be just fine, going hard as always. Coach Darryl Sutter also stated that Quick, “feels good.”

2.Mike Richards- He was at training camp and it is still too early to tell if Richards has gone back to his successful self.

3.Defense- With Muzzin and Doughty as the starting pair, it’s not at a good time that we learned Doughty suffered an upper-body injury while training back home in London, ON. His injury has recovery time is not known as of now. Of course the Kings dealt with loosing Rob Scuderi last year, this year they will deal with loosing Willie Mitchell, and it will be nice to see veterans Matt Greene and Robyn Regehr step up.

4.Rookies- Tanner Pearson and Tyler Toffoli looked to be as vibrant as always.

The Los Angeles Kings and San Jose Sharks will be featured in a four-episode series that leads up to their outdoor game on February 21, 2015 in Santa Clara. Scott Burnside of ESPN.com reported about the series that will be on a premium cable channel, Epix.

Previously the NHL would do their annual “24/7” HBO Series that was a series showcasing the two Winter Classic teams leading up to the game, but they announced a week ago that their three-year partnership with HBO had ended.

The four-episode series will feature the Chicago Blackhawks and Washington Capitals, before their January 1, 2015 outdoor game, and then a second series will feature the Kings and Sharks.

Burnside also reported that ”all hockey fans in the United States will have access to the finished product,” but specifics have not yet been announced. Epix is available on major providers such as Time Warner Cable, Verizon FIOS and DISH Network, but not on DirecTV.
