Despite his attempts to earn a roster spot by debuting the Kings new high-tech jerseys, defensive prospect Nicolas Deslaurier was sent back to his junior team yesterday in Rouyn-Noranda of the QMJHL. “I’m very confused,” Deslaurier said. “I thought the Tron jersey was my ticket on to the team. Instead I just got a plane ticket, in coach.” I asked if he was upset, but he reminded me that his name is Deslaurier, not Cloutier.

Well, he might have said that, had I actually interviewed him.
