LA Kings Sign Seven. Is Holloway Ready For Hollywood?

The LA Kings signed Trevor Lewis to a two-year contract ($1.45 million total) and Marc-Andre Cliche, Rich Clune, David Meckler, Andrew Campbell, Patrick Mullen and Jeff Zatkoff to one-year contracts. On deck are Corey Elkins (whose signing is almost official), Bud Holloway (who I want to see signed) and some kid named Drew Doughty who apparently plays defense. Corey Elkins has gone Oscar.

Holloway is 23 years old. He has good size at 6’0″ and 200 pounds. He is a right-handed shot, can play left or right wing and is a big game player. He had 7 goals and 7 assists in 16 games during the 2010 Calder Cup Finals. He tied an AHL record for game-winning goals in one post-season with six and scored the game-winning goal in each game of the Monarchs four-game sweep of the Portland Pirates. What does a boy have to do to get a shot at the big club? Rather than converting centers to wings on the 4th line, will the LA Kings sway toward Holloway? He may look pretty not bad alongside Trevor Lewis and Scott Parse. What do you think? GO KINGS!

  1. I think that you missed Corey Elkin’s agency’s tweet today –

    #LAKings prospect and client @CoreyElkins will not be signing back with the #Kings for another season. Could be headed to Europe for a yr

    • How dare you accuse me missing a tweet!? Actually, I just misread it the first time. Now it makes more sense…I thought to myself, “why sign and then go to play in Europe?” And I’m sober…

  2. Like it.

    Looking forward to watching Richards and Lewis do their playoff thing again (damn that Simmonds business).

  3. Impressive stats for Holloway, if he could hook-on with the big club he could be a big time sleeper hit!!! Well to most he would be, just not here with those in the know.
