Statement Regarding The Passing Of David Courtney from the LA Kings
“David was tremendously passionate about the Kings, our fans and the game of hockey. His time with the Kings dates back to the mid 1970s both in our PR office as our public relations director and also with work he did in our video department before he took over full-time Public Announcing duties at the Forum and STAPLES Center. In the arena he was an institution – he was the voice of the Kings – and his work added so much to the live, in-game experience for our fans as it did for the Clippers and Angels as well. Next season would have been David’ 35th year with our franchise, and on behalf of the entire Kings organization and AEG we are incredibly saddened by this news and we send our deepest condolences to his wife Janet and the rest of the Courtney family.” — Kings President, Business Operations Luc Robitaille
The last game David Courtney called for the Kings was 6.11.12
So I decide to wear my Dustin Brown shirt while watching today’s game against the Blue Jackets. I’d like to note that not only did we break our 5 game losing streak, but Brownie ended up having a really great game. Coincidence? I think not! Now can people please stop talking about ripping the “C” off of his sweater??
I’ve always had a soft spot in my heart for Davis Drewiske. I love that he scored his second career goal tonight. An assist from Anze Kopitar and Brownie parked in front of the net. Love it. You know what else I love? Hockey hugs!
Ryan Smyth is coming back to Los Angeles. As an Oiler though. I know some fans are probably going to boo him whenever he touches the puck, but I won’t. Even though he initially lied about requesting a trade, I still love Smytty! Can’t blame the guy for wanting what he thinks is best for his family. This picture of him as Jesus doesn’t really have anything to do with anything…I just found it to be extremely funny.
