LOS ANGELES — Just as the Los Angeles Kings were closing up shop on their 2013 Training Camp, and as the 2013-14 season was about to get underway, they acquired a new, young left wing prospect—a power forward with a scoring touch.

That player just might have a chance to become a top six forward for the Kings somewhere down the road. But the best part is that they did not have to give up anything to get him.

LOS ANGELES — When the Los Angeles Kings opened their 2013 Training Camp, a widely held belief was that right wing Tyler Toffoli would be a shoo-in to make the Kings’ opening night roster.

As training camp wore on, there was also some thought that left wing Tanner Pearson and center Linden Vey might also have a chance to make the Kings’ roster, given their strong showings in camp, and in pre-season games.

EL SEGUNDO, CA — Since he was selected by the Los Angeles Kings in the third round (84th overall) of the 2009 National Hockey League Entry Draft, many have kept an anxious eye on defenseman prospect Nicolas Deslauriers, because he had the size, strength, skating ability, and more—he already looked like he had many of the necessary attributes—maybe even the complete package—of the prototypical NHL-caliber defenseman.

EL SEGUNDO, CA — On September 15, when the Los Angeles Kings played split squad pre-season games against the Phoenix Coyotes, one at Jobing.com Arena in Glendale, Arizona, and the other at Staples Center in Los Angeles, there was a moment when just about everyone at Staples Center was asking, “who’s that guy?”

Fast forward to September 17, when the Kings skated at Anaheim in their third pre-season contest of the 2013-14 season, and once again, many were asking that same question.

Indeed, “that guy” deftly split two defenders to skate in on a breakaway against the Coyotes, and “that guy” scored a nifty goal off the rush at Anaheim.
