My name is Nicholas Chudoba and I was born and raised in Los Angeles, California. I am a life long Kings fan and have been around hockey in some capacity being, watching it, writing about it or playing it. I am an avid gear nerd and I take great interest in what equipment the players use. I also take great interest in observing the game and learning from what the professionals do and integrate it into my own skill set. Hockey is the greatest game and I couldn't be happier having the oppurtunity to write about it!
