@theroyalhalf nothing says "I'm from Los Angeles" more than going to a foreign country and refusing to walk. Good job representing. — Dan Goodkin (@Dangoodkin) March 8, 2014In addition to all the fun we've been having in Edmonton... there was an ulterior motive in coming up here this weekend.
Hello, old friend.
It's hard to believe that it's just been under 2 months since Ben Scrivens was traded to the Edmonton Oilers. But the fact that he's already become a fan favorite here in the City of Champions shouldn't come as a surprise to any of us Los Angeles Kings fans.
Scrivens posts unreal save percentage in LA, gets written off as playing behind good D. Well his numbers have gone up since going to Oilers. — James Mirtle (@mirtle) March 5, 2014
Scrivens only played 19 games for the Kings... but was one of the most beloved players by the fans in recent memory. Not because he was a great goalie... but because he inspired great memes.
Ben and his wife, Jen, are going to be in Edmonton for at least two more years... so treat him well, Oilers fans. And hopefully you can learn a thing or two from him.
I'm just glad that Ben Scrivens in playing for a team like the Edmonton Oilers that can use their impressive digital skills to help showcase a player of his caliber.
