EL SEGUNDO, Calif. (AP) - Matt Frattin moved to Southern California this summer with a plan.
Three weeks before the Los Angeles Kings opened training camp, he found a place close to the ocean in Hermosa Beach, but he wasn't looking for surf or sand.
After an up-and-down hockey career filled with arrests and accolades, the 25-year-old Frattin realized the opportunity in front of him with his new club, and he didn't want to waste a day of it.
The first few days of camp have gone well for Frattin, acquired by the Kings in a summer trade with the Toronto Maple Leafs. He's skating with veterans Jeff Carter and Mike Richardson as the left wing of the Kings' second line, getting every opportunity to earn a high-profile job with the two-time Western Conference finalists.
