Despite that, the 22-year-old, 6-1, 217-pound native of Pickering, Ontario was assigned back to the Manchester Monarchs of the American Hockey League in the second round of training camp cuts on September 21, 2013.
“There were a couple of rumors saying that I had a pretty good chance, but I guess they wanted the same team as last year, and [stay] with older, more experienced guys,” said Andreoff. “If there’s injuries, I’m sure I’ll get the call up, eventually. But so far, Manchester’s been playing really well, so I’m just taking that day-by-day.”

Although Pearson, Toffoli and Vey have not likely made it to the NHL to stay, they have made it there faster than the vast majority of young players who often toil in the minors for several years before getting their chance, if they get the chance at all.
One player who seems to be on a more normal timetable is defenseman Colin Miller, who was selected by the Kings in the fifth round (151st overall) of the 2012 NHL Draft.
The 21-year-old, 6-1, 195-pound native of Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario performed well during the Kings’ rookie camp and rookie tournament, not to mention their training camp. But with the Manchester Monarchs of the American Hockey League this season, he has struggled.
