LOS ANGELES — Last fall, left wing prospect Andy Andreoff was busy turning some heads during the Los Angeles Kings’ annual Rookie Camp, and he even lasted longer in the team’s 2011 Training Camp than most expected of a third round draft pick (80th overall, 2011 National Hockey League Entry Draft).

The 6-1, 201-pound native of Pickering, Ontario, known for his physical play, opened some eyes by displaying some decent skills.

That combination of physical play and skill is what grabbed the attention of Kings scouts in the 2010-11 season, when he broke out for 33 goals and 42 assists for 75 points, with a +34 plus/minus rating, and 109 penalty minutes in 66 regular season games with the Oshawa Generals of the Ontario Hockey League.

LOS ANGELES — The young prospects of the Los Angeles Kings hit the ice for the first time today at the Toyota Sports Center in El Segundo, California, for Day One of the team’s annual Development Camp.

The Development Camp runs through Tuesday, July 10, with three on-ice sessions each day (schedule and camp roster available below).

For one camp veteran, forward prospect Linden Vey, who scored 19 goals and added 24 assists for 43 points in 74 regular season games for the Manchester Monarchs of the American Hockey League in 2011-12, this is a time to push harder on his strength and conditioning regimen.

Indeed, one of the knocks on Vey while he was in playing in the Western Hockey League with the Medicine Hat Tigers was his strength and conditioning. Read more of this post
