EL SEGUNDO, CA — After spending the vast majority of the 2015-16 season on left wing with the American Hockey League
’s Ontario Reign
, Los Angeles Kings
forward prospect Adrian Kempe
is playing center in the Kings’ 2016 Training Camp, which has been more than a bit of an adjustment for him.
“Until I was 15, I played center my whole life,” he said. “Then, mostly the wing. Last year, I played 15-20 games at center.”
“I’m playing center right now, so it’s tough,” he added. “I played left wing almost all last year, so it’s been tough to play in the middle. But I’ve felt more and more comfortable after each game. I got better and better in the defensive zone, and better in terms of puck possession, too.”
