Kukla's Korner Hockey

Committed Captain

via the LA Times (reg. req.),
Defenseman Mattias Norstrom said he told Swedish hockey officials that he won't play for his homeland in the world championships because he wants to remain in the Los Angeles area while the path of the Kings' coaching and management future is decided. "I decided that I need to stick around, with this season ending up with all the rumors and talk about changes," Norstrom said. "As the captain, as long as I am captain of this team, I need to stick around and be available. Whether it's [reporters], or the team or teammates. I can't just pack up and say, 'I've got to play hockey.'
