The LA Kings held their victory parade yesterday. The parade marks the unofficial end of the 2011-2012 NHL season. This means hockey fans are about to have their first weekend without NHL hockey in what seems like a lifetime. Time to get re-acquainted with things like family members, friends, and the outdoors. The good news is life without hockey will be brief. The 2012 NHL Entry Draft is next weekend.
