Kovalchuk, Clarkson, Oates & Robinson Signing On NJ’s Off Day (Video)

Kovalchuk, Clarkson, Oates  & Robinson Signing Autographs On NJ’s Stanley Cup Off Day The New Jersey Devils took to the ice at the Kings and Lakers shared facility in El Segundo (CA), shortly after LA’s off day workout came to a conclusion on Tuesday. The Toyota Sports Center (TSC) is located 15 miles southwest of Staples Center and six miles south of the Ritz-Carlton, Marina Del Rey hotel, New Jersey’s property of choice during the 2012 Stanley Cup Finals.

The Devils team charter bus was positioned behind the TSC facility, with several members of the organization choosing to sign autographs for an awaiting group of mostly Kings fans, just before boarding the bus.

Along with legendary goaltender Martin Brodeur and team captain Zach Parise, star left wing Ilya Kovalchuk was the marquee attraction among the gathering of LA NHL fans. Since Brodeur and Parise went directly onto the bus, Kovalchuk became the man of the hour, as he came over to sign autographs for a good couple minutes. Below is iFolloSports.com original video of the $100 million man’s generous approach with fans.

 

Back to Brodeur, here is a look at the all-time great’s work between the pipes, courtesy of iFolloSports.com original video, shot during the day’s practice session.

 

Right wing David Clarkson also provided fans with a few minutes of his time. Sporting an imposing playoff beard, the 28-year-old bruiser (Clarkson was ninth in penalty minutes during the regular season), was very cordial to the road fans, even the guy who had to confirm what Clarkson’s uniform number was. Take a look at the scene, per the below iFolloSports.com original video.

 

Assistant coaches Larry Robinson and Adam Oates bring a combined 39 years of NHL experience to the Devils’ staff. Both men were very popular among the group of Southern California hockey followers, as a result of Robinson’s history with the Kings, as both a player and coach, and Oates brief tenure with the Anaheim Ducks. Take a look at iFolloSports.com original video of the legends interacting with fans.
