Kings’ Stoll medically cleared, ‘100 percent’ after seizure

Sep 3, 2013, 4:50 PM EDT


Jarret Stoll says there’s no ill-effects from the seizure that sent him to hospital in early July.

“I feel fine. I feel a hundred percent,” Stoll told LA Kings Insider on Tuesday. “That’s not an issue. I think it’s more of an issue if people talk about it, and it’s just one of those things that happened that I wish didn’t, but it did.”

Stoll, 31, was rushed to a L.A.-area hospital the morning of July 3 after suffering the seizure and underwent a series of tests, according to Kings GM Dean Lombardi. It was unclear what caused the seizure, and Stoll didn’t divulge much in the way of medical updates.

“I’m just moving on looking forward to the start of the season,” he explained. “Medically cleared, all those things, had a great doctors take care of me in terms of getting ready for camp and being cleared for play.

“So that’s all taken care of.”

Stoll missed almost all of Los Angeles’ second-round playoff win over San Jose after taking a Raffi Torres hit to the head in Game 1 and suffering a concussion.

He did, however, return to play all five of the Kings’ Western Conference finals games against Chicago.

    Marginal player at best. Non-story.

      One of the best face-off players in the league. Solid third-line center that would be higher if not for the team is loaded at that position. Marginal, my ass. If you don’t know the game, then don’t comment. You really make yourself look like a fool.

        This ‘areaman’ needs to return to the area from which he came, which is most likely some toxic garbage dump! Jarret Stoll is an ‘excellent’ player and he’s an integral part of our ‘Proven Winners’ lineup (aka the LA Kings). What Torres did to Stoll this past spring was positively despicable, however he’s going to be ‘dealt with’ in due course, no two ways about it. Anyway, it’s good to hear that Stoll is feeling better now, as we need him in our ‘Proven Winners’ lineup (aka the LA Kings) no less than a steak needs seasoning ! :)

        Exhibit A: Stoll executing the Canucks …

        Exhibit B: Stoll executing the ‘deserter’ Kovi …

        Career negative. Marginal stats. He does get away with boarding more than any other player., I will give him that. His stats are marginal. If Quick doesn’t play an insane two months two seasons ago, there is no “proven winners” line-up to discuss . . . Lol. These proven winners didn’t help him out in the playoffs this year, did they?

        I have no idea what you are babbling about. They made it to the WCF, which, if you haven’t noticed, means they are one of the last four teams standing. And no one was going to beat the Blackhawks this season.

        What a moron. Another insect that needs to crawl back under a rock. Where does PHT find these idiots, anyway?

        I am guessing that the ad hominem is used in Queensland very effectively . . . Queens fans are an emotional sect . . . Stoll is a chronic bottom six guy. He is not worth the emotion expended here. My opening post was intended exemplify these truisms. It has appeared to work. Good day.

    He’s solid. Every cup winning team has a guy or two like Stoll. A guy that fits in great in either the top 6 or bottom 6. Not everyone is a Crosby or Stamkos.

    He’s a stat watcher. Probably never even seen him play.

    Looking at your name with ( 714 )_I assume you are a shadowing Ducks Fan. That explains a lot as you sit south of us with major pe*is envy over our recent successes and projected season. As we look at Jarrett Stoll and his role on the team as a major faceoff man, a penalty killer energy guy with an amazing shot. Heart and grittiness to the enth degree, I must say he is far from a small piece of the pie for us. Indeed as we look at your underperforming roster and the rebuilding mode you guys are in, we realize that as you are now, so were we once. It takes a while to build a winning team and chemistry is everything. With Ryan Getslaf and Corey Fairy tied up for 8 years, we are looking at about 2021 before I expect to hear much from your team. Always a bridesmaid and you will be copmpetetive, but when I go see the Kings Games at the Honda Center and see our fans out number and out vocalize the home teams fans, that is really telling. So go watch some hockey games and get a little educated and when you do, come back on and post. Till then shut up and stop trolling. It is best to keep ones mouth shut and be thought a fool than to open one’s mouth and remove all doubt…

    Well. The “bridesmaids” took the division last year. The Ducks drew a hot Wings team while the Kings drew perennial playoff doormats the Blues and Sharks. The Ducks swept the Hawks last year. I go see the Ducks at Staples a few block from Skid Row. The Kings fans I have come in contact with have very low hockey IQ’s. The only ones that have any hockey knowledge are the old Forum fans. The post Gretzky Staples fans are complete nimrods. More Ducks fans would attend Kings games if the Kings fans weren’t such douches. That, and the LA traffic (three lanes on the 5 Freeway?? Idiots!) . . . and the transients begging for money aren’t worth the trip. Traveling down to Orange County is a much more pleasant experience. Having said that, where is the King’s scoring going to come from this year? They brought everyone back from last year . . . including the scoring Juggernaut Stoll.
