PIERRE LEBRUN OF ESPN TALKS TO & ABOUT WILLIE MITCHELL

Here is a sampling. Click on the link below for more.

EL SEGUNDO, Calif. — When you see them on the ice together as a pairing, you wonder if you aren’t watching the makings of one of the NHL’s great defensive tandems for the 2010-11 season.

Free-agent newcomer Willie Mitchell was again skating alongside blueliner phenom Drew Doughty at Kings training camp Monday, a fit that makes so much sense.

“Mitchell and Doughty — I really like the look,” Kings coach Terry Murray said Monday between on-ice sessions at the team’s practice facility. “A great veteran player in Mitchell, a defensive guy who’s really a solid character person, is going to help push Doughty along.”

Mitchell, the towering, shutdown D-man, plus Doughty, the offensive wizard and puck mover and … voila! You have the Kings’ top pairing.

  1. I have to admit I thought we were screwed this summer when I saw the lack of signings but it looks like DL made the right move in signing WM. It’ll be interesting to see if TM actually pairs these two together.

    That being said, can’t wait for this season to start already!
