Goaltending has been a large part of the Kings’ impressive season, as Tedy Loughborough has proven to be an absolute rock in net. The Wellesley, MA, native racked up a 2.56 goals against average and .911 save percentage along with two shutouts in nearly 1400 minutes of play this past season. Both his save percentage and goals against average placed him well-inside the top ten in each category.
While Loughborough represents a formidable threat between the pipes, the Kings augmented their lineup with the midseason addition of Jeff Hextall. The son of NHL goaltending legend Ron Hextall put up similarly impressive numbers and the duo monopolized the Premier Division’s goaltending star of the week throughout the month of January.
With a strong lineup and a scary goaltending tandem, look for the Kings to contend for the Dineen Cup as the playoff tournament rolls on. The team already dispatched the PAL Jr. Islanders in the first round and are poised to bring the Cup to Foxboro.
