Bob Miller grew up in the Midwest (Chicago), but for the last last forty years he has been in Los Angeles, thrilling Kings fans with an accurate, honest, no-schtick “play-by-play” call. Miller started with the Kings in 1973 after being discovered by the great Chick Hearn. How many sports announcers can say they made it to the two fames? Miller is in the Hall of Fame for broadcasting and has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. He has called two Stanley Cup championships for the Kings and is the most popular hockey announcer in the history of Los Angeles, if not the National Hockey League. Filmmaker Charlie Minn interviews the people closest to Miller, recounts his most memorable calls and allows Miller to do what he does best, tell a story. The ending of the film will show you a part of Miller perhaps nobody knows.”

Los Angeles Kings Updates: Martinez, Voynov, and Bodnarchuk

Los Angeles Kings defenseman Alec Martinez injured his finger during last Thursday’s game against the Dallas Stars. Martinez left the game and did not return. He had surgery the following day and is expected to return in a week, per Kings general manager Dean Lombardi.

Head coach Darryl Sutter described the injury, “You know what? Everything went well,” Sutter said to Jon Rosen of lakingsinisder.com. “It was basically a finger – they had to do some suturing on his finger and clean up his nail a bit. When it heals, then he’ll be ready.”

Martinez most likely won’t play Thursday, but will probably join the team for their road trip on Saturday.

Defenseman Andrew Bodnarchuk, who has been on the Kings' injured reserve since he suffered an injury during training camp practice at the STAPLES Center, has been activated. As soon as he was activated, he was assigned to the Kings' American Hockey League affiliate, the Manchester Monarchs.

Brodnarchuk has resumed skating, but was not cleared to play. The move suggests that he is ready to make his 2014-15 AHL season debut.
