EL SEGUNDO, CA — By now, you probably know that veteran defenseman Rob Scuderi has signed as an unrestricted free agent with the Pittsburgh Penguins, citing the need/desire to be closer to family.
In other Los Angeles Kings-related news, looking to the future, the Kings have announced that the 2013 Development Camp for their prospects will be held “next week,” according to a statement by the team.
If tradition holds, the Kings will likely have a four-day camp, with the daily schedule featuring two morning workouts, one for forwards, and a second for defensemen and goalies, followed by an afternoon session for the entire group.
The Kings have not released specific dates and times.
Development Camp Notes
- All of the Kings’ 2013 draft picks will be in camp, except for fourth round pick (118th overall) forward Hudson Fasching. A Kings spokesperson said that Fasching will be in summer school at the University of Minnesota.
