“Undisputed” is a series that will provide a look into the lives of eight Kings players.
The first player featured was defenseman Jack Johnson. The program was first aired during last night’s loss to St. Louis, also Johnson’s 24th birthday.
Johnson discussed his family, his love of hockey, how he got involved in the sport, the beginnings of his career, finding out he had been traded to Los Angeles, and more.
He also touched on his experience in the Olympics and the confidence and desire it instilled in him.
He also described himself as “an American,” “proud,” “an older brother,” and “a son.”
The entire 10-minute episode can be seen here.
Other topics Johnson discusses include why he values education and wants to get his degree, how long he would like to play in the NHL, and why he chose to stay at Michigan for some time after being drafted by Carolina.
The rest of the players to be featured are captain Dustin Brown, defenseman Matt Greene, 2011 All-Star Anze Kopitar, center Michal Handzus, forward Jarret Stoll, Norris Trophy nominee Drew Doughty, and right wing Wayne Simmonds.
The next episode will premiere Jan. 26 on kings.nhl.com. It will make its television debut the same night during a game against the San Jose Sharks, which will air at 7:30 on Fox Sports West.
