EL SEGUNDO, CA — The Los Angeles Kings have completed nine on-ice days of their 2011 Training Camp, and, with their third pre-season game coming up tonight against the Anaheim Ducks (6:30 PM PDT, Staples Center), two of their young prospects have already turned some heads.

Center prospect Tyler Toffoli, the Kings’ second round selection (47th overall) in the 2010 National Hockey League Entry Draft, has taken some big steps forward in his development over the past year, enough to win the scoring title in the Ontario Hockey League with 57 goals and 51 assists for 108 points in 68 regular season games with the Ottawa 67’s.

Although the 19-year-old native of Scarborough, Ontario got off to a bit of a slow start in the split-squad pre-season game at Phoenix on September 21, Toffoli was able to turn things up as the game went on. Read more of this post

EL SEGUNDO, CA — Day 3 of the Drew Doughty saga has come and gone with no end in sight to the contract dispute between the 21-year-old holdout defenseman and the Los Angeles Kings. Coincidentally, it was also Day 3 of the team’s 2011 Training Camp, which saw the team focus on the system they will play.

“It’s been good, it’s been fast,” said veteran left wing Ethan Moreau, who was signed by the Kings as an unrestricted free agent to a one-year deal on August 23. “We’ve been on the ice a lot, probably more than I’ve been on the ice in the last ten years. We’ve been working on system play, which is important.”
