Kings-logo_250 The Kings on Monday announced the expected lineups for their first exhibition games, a pair of split-squad contests Wednesday against the Phoenix Coyotes. One game will be played in Glendale, Ariz., and the other at Staples Center.

Goaltenders Jonathan Quick and Martin Jones are scheduled to play at Staples Center, where Mike Richards is expected to make his first appearance in a Kings uniform.
