Tyler Toffoli – Team Canada’s only Kings prospect?

The times they are a-changin’. Or are they?

For the last few years, the Kings have had more prospects invited to Team Canada’s World Junior evaluation camps than just about any other NHL club. Last year alone, they had Brayden Schenn, Linden Vey, JF Berube, Kyle Clifford and several others on the list.

The Kings have also had several players put in leadership roles for Canada at the tournament itself – as Schenn, Thomas Hickey and Colten Teubert all wore letters on their chest in recent years.

However, as of right now, Tyler Toffoli is the only Kings prospect set to attend this summer’s evaluation camp for the 2012 World Junior Championship.
That could change after next weekend’s NHL Draft though, as 20 of the 46 players invited are draft eligible – and are expected to be selected.  Who knows, maybe the Kings will nab a few of those.

So, the final prospect count is really still TBD.

As reported last week, Derek Forbort and Kevin Gravel (both selected by the Kings at the 2010 NHL Draft) were invited to attend the upcoming Team USA evaluation camp.

Toffoli, who led the OHL in scoring this past season, was a guest on MayorsManor right before the playoffs began – click here if you missed it.

Meanwhile, Toffoli has been working out in Ottawa with the gang at Greco Lean and Fit. He’s expected to be in Los Angeles for the Kings annual Development Camp in a few weeks. More on that later.
