Players Rep Their Schools on LA Kings All-College Teams

Later tonight, Kings prospect Derek Forbort and the North Dakota Fighting Sioux will continue their quest for an eighth NCAA National Championship.

It’s a game that several of the current Kings will be watching, namely Matt Greene and Jack Johnson. Greene went to UND and of course, Johnson went to Michigan.

Other former college players on the Kings roster this season include every defenseman not named Drew Doughty and forwards Scott Parse, Dustin Penner and Kevin Westgarth.

And then you have a whole group of more guys in the system, like Jeff Zatkoff – starting goaltender in Manchester.  Just a few years ago he was roaming the campus of Miami University (Ohio) with defenseman Alec Martinez.

So, with that in mind, here are the Kings All-Time, All-College first and second teams…

First Team:

Goalie – Jonathan Quick (UMass)
Defenseman – Jack Johnson (Michigan)
Defenseman – Rob Blake (Bowling Green)
Forward – Tony Granato (Wisconsin)
Forward – Mike Cammalleri (Michigan)
Forward – Dave Taylor (Clarkson University)

Second Team:

Goalie – Robb Stauber (Minnesota)
Defenseman – Rob Scuderi (Boston College)
Defenseman – Garry Galley (Bowling Green)
Forward – Bryan Smolinski (Michigan State)
Forward – Steve Reinprecht (Wisconsin)
Forward – Jason Blake (North Dakota)

Honorable mention:  Dan Bylsma (Bowling Green), Anson Carter (Michigan State), Joe Corvo (Western Michigan), Mike Donnelly (Michigan State), Matt Greene (North Dakota), Bob Kudelski (Yale), Craig Johnson (Minnesota), Shawn McEachern (Boston) and Corey Millen (Minnesota).
