Ane Kopitar officialy at LA Kings

I belive this deserves to be in a thread on its own. Our young hockey jewell made it into the NHL! The first Slovenian ever! At the age of 19 years! This was rumoured for quite some time now, but very few actually expected it to happen so soon. This just shows what a potential this young boy has. This is really something spectacular!:sweeteye:

Well done Ane and good luck amongst the best!

SLOVENIJA

congrats to Anze, he had a good preseason, although sucks he plays in LA (for me) here in the east coast we rarely see those teams unless they come here which is only once a season

Actually the Islanders are playing them in the second or third game of the season

Jan Mursak was also drafted this year by the Red Wings, he is now playing in the Canadian junior league OHL

Slovenian hockey is on the rise :thmbup:

Kopitar made his debut in LA King's 4:3 loss to Anaheim, he actually played alot, about 23 minutes scored two goals and was a +1!

He seems tobe doing pretty well indeed. Like you said he scored two in his first game, than in his second he played about 20 minutes and made three assists for the Kings 4:1 victory. Impressive if you ask me!

Kopitar's Kings won again, this time 4:2 against the Islanders at home. He played some 19 minutes and again made a point for a pass a few seconds before the end for the final result.

Yet again, well done Ane.

yeah I was able to watch the first period of the game (game started at 10pm NY/NY time so couldn't watch the whole thing), the LA Kings coach says he is the real deal and the broadcast team mentioned how he is the first Slovenian to play in the NHL, impressive for a country with 7 rinks blah blah p they also said its a growing hockey nation with another player drafted a few playing in Canadian junior hockey and its good for the hockey world
