It's not that we're changing directions here at Hound Central 5.0, treading 8x10 photographs for pucks. It was just that we didn't have as many pucks for players this trip. And, like I always say, it's not smart to go out empty-handed.
That was the primary reason for snapping up autographed photos from a trio of Los Angeles Kings players during last week's visit to Hockey Bay:
It's too bad, I must say, that the blue paint pen didn't provide a better autograph from team captain Dustin Brown. Still, we can't complain, given all of the other items that he signed for us.
Winger Alexander Frolov signed this overhead shot, a style that is quickly gaining favor here at Hound Central 5.0. His autograph? That's a different story.
Defenseman Jack Johnson was nice enough to sign off to the side, rather than within the dark part of his USA Hockey jersey, on this photo. You have to respect a player who respects hounds.
