Defenseman Brayden McNabb was signed to a two year contract over the summer with the Los Angeles Kings, and he has stepped in for the team since the start of the season. The Kings have struggled all season long with injured defenseman and Slava Voynov being suspended indefinitely form the NHL.
McNabb’s first career NHL goal came with the Kings just last night. “I closed my eyes and it went in,” said the defenseman.
“Yeah, it was good to see,” said head coach Darryl Sutter. “It was funny – it’s a play that we talk a lot about against Anaheim where there’s pretty much a layer of players in different colored jerseys, and you’ve got to get it through, If you don’t – he had another opportunity in the third period to do that and didn’t.”
McNabb, 23, has appeared in 55 NHL regular season games, with the Kings and Buffalo Sabres. McNabb has recorded one goal and 17 assists so far in his NHL career, a plus-4 rating, and 37 penalty minutes.Read more... Join the Conversation...
