Kings' Tanner Pearson: Sets up two goals in preseason loss

Pearson collected two assists -- including a man-advantage helper -- Saturday, but the Kings dropped the exhibition home opener to the Canucks, 4-3 in overtime.

Plenty of regulars from both sides were on the ice for this initial preseason affair, but Pearson only saw 12:08; he doesn't have a whole lot to prove after placing second (only behind Jeff Carter) on the team with 24 goals last season. Interestingly, the Kings will be pitted against the Canucks in Shanghai next Thursday, and Beijing on Saturday, Sept. 23. Pearson is one of 26 players within the organization bound for China.
