The memory is so fresh in Shane Harper’s mind that the details come right to the surface when he tells the story. As a kid growing up in Valencia, Harper played hockey at the Kings’ former practice facility, the Iceoplex in North Hills. One year he was put on the same team as Ty and Paulina Gretzky, the son and daughter of Wayne Gretzky. For Harper’s seventh birthday he had a party at the rink, and No. 99 made an appearance.
Marian Gaborik’s recovery from an offseason knee procedure is progressing, but the Kings’ forward said Wednesday there’s no timetable for his return. He is skating with the team at Toyota Sports Center but hasn't done full-contact drills. “It’s just a matter of me kind of getting into game situations and practices and getting skating under my belt, and just getting into the drills,” Gaborik said. “Everything’s coming along well, and [I’ll] just connect the other things.
Certain sights and sounds associated with the Kings will be missing when they play the Vancouver Canucks in China. Their Stanley Cup banners won’t hang in the rafters, and Dave Joseph won’t announce their goals. Presumably absent, too, will be Kings’ fans well-worn heckle to opposing fans that typically isn’t fit for most newspapers to print. “It’s going to be interesting to see how the crowd reacts,” Kings President Luc Robitaille said.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
