MayorsManor Podcast - featuring Ian Laperriere

Trevor Lewis is wearing #22 this season. Before him were names like Baumgartner, Huddy, Tocchet, Conroy and Halpern. However, for most Kings fans there's only one #22...Ian Laperriere.

And the admiration for Lappy isn't just among the fans.

"Ian, the way he plays, tells it all" said captain Dustin Brown when talking about the four leaders that inspired him earlier in his career. Luc Robitaille specifically called out Laperriere during his Hall of Fame induction speech. So, it really doesn't matter who you're talking with, from coaches to teammates to opponents, everybody has deep respect from what Lappy brings to the game of hockey.

Therefore, when it came time to launch the new MayorsManor podcast, he was the perfect guest. Not only does he have great stories, that French-Canadian accent could only mean one thing - hockey!

He doesn't need much more of an introduction, so let's get right to it.

In this interview we cover the trade that brought him to Los Angeles, the highs and lows of his career, playoff memories at Staples Center, contract talks with the, a word association segment that is one for the ages.  Truly candid comments from Lappy.

  1. wow, great interview! will always love lappy :)

  2. I hated the Avs so much when we let him go then we got Tucker really how dumb

  3. Bandwidth was exceeded. Lappy's too popular. All fixed now. Sorry for the inconvenience.

  4. Unreal interview. There is nobody with the heart and determination in the NHL like Lappy. I hope the Kings find some way to get him involved with the organization. It was concerning to hear that the Kings never made him an offer.

  5. Fabulous! His relentless dedication to TEAM is something to share with every kid!! Not many "Lappy's" left in the NHL.

    I would love to see the Kings retire #22.

  6. Great interview! We luv ya Lappy in Denver!
    Wish you and your family the best in the future.
    Maybe the Avs bring you back in some capacity like Deadmarsh?
    You could teach these kids a lot!
    -Big fan of yours in Denver

  7. Wow! what an interview. One of the few guys that change the momentum of a team or a crowd by just being on the ice. I wish anyone on the Kings right now had half the heart that Lappy has. Get well Lappy! We'll always love ya in LA!
