Kings Host Avalanche at Frozen Fury XII
Colorado Avalanche vs. Los Angeles Kings
Coach Terry Murray indicated Thursday at practice that his roster for Frozen Fury will be reflective of what is out on the ice on Opening Day.

Frozen Fury Roster | Game Notes

If that's the case, Alec Martinez and Rich Clune will be making their NHL Debuts vs. the Coyotes on Oct. 3. 

The Kings will pair Martinez with Doughty on Saturday at Frozen Fury, that could be the opening night pairing as the Kings Sean O'Donnell has been suspended for the first two games of the season. The Kings fourth line of Clune, Trevor Lewis and Kevin Westgarth are skating together and could be the Opening Night fourth line, though there still is competition for the last remaining spots...and 2009 first round pick Brayden Schenn is still on the roster.

Jonathan Quick is expected to play all 60 minutes vs. the Avalanche.

Colorado, of course, beat the Kings 3-2 on Sept. 23.

Paul Stastny and Milan Hejduk scored second-period goals and Craig Anderson stopped Marc-Andre Cliche's penalty shot in Colorado's win.

Anderson, signed as a free agent after playing three seasons for Florida, finished with 30 saves. T.J. Hensick also scored for Colorado (3-1). Peter Harrold and Trevor Lewis scored, and Erik Ersberg had 21 saves for the Kings (3-2-1).

It will be the 12th Frozen Fury with the Kings having posted an 8-2-2 mark (two-game series in 1998).
