Colin Fraser‘s job on the Kings’ fourth line has been impressive in the playoffs. While he’s missed the last two games tending to a family matter, according to Rich Hammond of L.A. Kings Insider, he was back on the ice for practice this morning.

Fraser has been a stud on the fourth line alongside Brad Richardson and Jordan Nolan and given the Kings the right amount of energy and physical play they’ve needed to keep opponents on edge in the postseason. If Fraser is good to go for tomorrow afternoon’s game, he’ll likely get his spot back from Kyle Clifford.

Fraser hasn’t had monster numbers in the playoffs, but the effort level and intensity has been there. Just what the Coyotes needed down 3-0, to have their opponents get a tough player back.

    And Kyle Clifford is no slouch either.

    “Okay … so let’s load one more bullet in the chamber, shall we ?” ….

    the bottom line friends, is that when you’re “shooting fish in a barrel” with a Gatling gun, then one more round “probably” won’t make a whole lot of difference ? At any rate, we Kings fans welcome comrade Fraser back to the front lines … “there’s glory to be had here son, so get out there and grab some !” … :)
