Given that @LAKings defenseman Jeff Schultz hadn't played in an NHL game in more than two years, and had played all his hockey this season in the American Hockey League with @MonarchsHockey, he was a big question mark when he was suddenly pressed into service after veteran defenseman Robyn Regher was lost to injury.

Indeed with both Willie Mitchell and Regher out of the lineup, Schultz was finally back on NHL ice, making his Kings debut in a second round playoff game on May 5, at Anaheim.

In that game, a 3-1 win for the Kings, little was expected of Schultz, but he kept things simple, and put in a very solid, effective, if not flashy, performance.

For all the details, along with audio of NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman's press conference prior to the game, and post-game audio with Dustin Brown, Alec Martinez, Schultz, and head coaches Darryl Sutter and Bruce Boudreau, check out:
