Quotes from Drew Doughty

Here is a straight forward quote about playing hockey in this generation of the game.  Although hockey is a team sport it used to have big individual stars that relied on their own handling of the puck and scoring.  Here’s what Drew says about the game now,   “What you can expect to do is go to the net hard.  The goalies are so good these days if you’re not getting screens in front, if you’re not getting rebounds or tips, goals aren’t going to go in.”

Of course I like it when Doughty says something in a deadpan sort of way.  When asked about a particularity hard foul on another player Drew said,  “Generally, out West that’s not a penalty.”  Drew is sensitive about penalties s he is well known for spending back to back time in the penalty box.

Jonathan Quick LA Kings

Stanley Cup winners for 2014 LA Kings goalie Jonathan Quick.   He also won the Conn Smythe Trophy as playoff Most Valuable Player two years ago.  Quick is my son-in-laws favorite player.   This is what Jonathan Quick has to say about   the team’s “magic” and finding a way to get a win: “Obviously we get a bounce that goes against us a little bit there on the second one. It’s still early, so you just stick with it. From a goalie’s perspective, you try and make the next save. With the forwards, they’re just trying to get in deep, wear ‘em out a little bit and get pucks to the net. We were fortunate to get the third there. Now, you start all over again. It’s a zero-zero game and you’re trying to win the next game.”

Image of Drew Doughty LA Kings Defenseman Sports Painting

Sports painting. Los Angeles Kings defenseman Drew Doughty  The sports image by John Robertson is painted on brown paper approximately 4 feet by 7 ½ feet, acrylic. It is the first time I have painted large-scale on paper and was an experiment to see how the paint acts on it’s surface.  I liked the watery consistency of the paint which adds to the nature of a hockey player.  It gives the image a feeling of more action.  My object in painting is not to paint illustratively.  It is about expressing the idea of hockey and the individual player without representing the person exactly.  Photographs do that quite nicely.
