In several previous posts I mentioned the excitement I have for Teddy Purcell and his involvement with the Los Angeles Kings organization. Well, training camp opened today for most NHL teams and for the Los Angeles Kings, it was no different and with that Purcell begins his 3rd pro camp.
Teddy hit the ice around 11am with Group B and was (as reported by Hammond) skateing with Oscar Moller at Center and Captain Dustin Brown on Right. What's interesting to note here is that Purcell was playing the left side, a change from last season. Of course, it is only day one of camp and things could change a thousands times before October, but it is interesting to see Teddy start with Brown though. If this early pairing helps get a chemistry flow happening, this line could become very effective. We'll have to wait and see what happens. In the meantime, go check out this interview with Purcell during training camp earlier today.
