Yet another d-man invited to Kings Development Camp

Adding to the roster notes posted earlier today for the Kings upcoming Development Camp, word is that another defenseman has been invited.

The annual sessions, held at the team’s training facility in El Segundo, usually features all of the top signed and unsigned prospects in the organization, along with a few key free agent invitees.

Already listed as invited were right wing Michael Kantor (Soo Greyhounds, OHL) and three defensemen – Pierre Durepos (Saint John Sea Dogs, QMJHL), Colin Miller (Soo Greyhounds, OHL) and Saverio Posa (Windsor Spitfires, OHL).

You can now add to that list Alexander Roach of the Calgary Hitmen.

In 61 regular season games this year, the 6-foot-4, 217 pound blueliner posted 16 points (4 goals, 12 assists) and 77 penalty minutes. Although 18 years old, it was his rookie season in the WHL.

According to his agent, he was tendered the invitation moments after the conclusion of the NHL Draft this past weekend in Minneapolis.
