The Kings are down to 31 players on their 2009 Training Camp roster.
Clifford, 18, was the Kings second round pick (35th overall) in the 2009 National Hockey League Entry Draft last June. He was signed to a three-year, entry-level deal.
The 6-2, 208-pound native of Ayr, Ontario has impressed the Kings with his tough, aggressive style of play so far in training camp.
Last season, Clifford scored sixteen goals and added twelve assists for 28 points with 133 penalty minutes in sixty regular season games with the Barrie Colts of the Ontario Hockey League. In five playoff games, Clifford racked up thirteen penalty minutes.
Clifford scored a goal and added fourteen assists for fifteen points with 83 penalty minutes in 66 regular season games during the 2006-07 season. In nine playoff games, he tallied one assist with four penalty minutes.
Clifford also represented Canada at the 2009 Under-18 World Championships, racking up a team-high sixteen penalty minutes in six games.
