LOS ANGELES (AP) - The Los Angeles Kings raised the Stanley Cup for the first time last summer. Thanks to the NHL lockout, they still haven't raised their first championship banner.
The Kings are eager for that celebration, but they're also ready to get back to work on defending their title. With their entire roster returning intact from last season's eighth-seeded championship team, they believe they're in prime position to do it.
Conn Smythe Trophy-winning goalie Jonathan Quick and teammates Matt Greene and Jarret Stoll joined coach Darryl Sutter, general manager Dean Lombardi and the rest of the Kings' brass Thursday to announce a million-dollar charity donation and a major team sponsorship agreement with McDonald's.
Sutter coached the Chicago Blackhawks during the NHL's last shortened season in 1995, so he knows its particular challenges.
