EL SEGUNDO, CA — The Los Angeles Kings’ five-day 2012 Development Camp ends late this afternoon. The young prospects will then[/caption] disperse for the summer to get some rest, but also to spend a good amount of time in the gym to work on their strength and conditioning.

Unlike previous Development Camps, when the media had access to the players and coaches after on-ice sessions for interviews, this time around, access was restricted to one day, July 9, so this time around, the extensive Development Camp coverage from past seasons is not possible. Nevertheless, here are several interviews that you can listen to, including some exclusive telephone interviews…
